Quite a leap forward, in terms of originality. Although still very rooted in the latter-day Pink Floyd mold, Jean-Pierre Schenk & co definitly moved away to a more broad and different sound. This concept album is quite interesting because it retained most of their best early features while doing something more challeging and complex. I don´t think the story itself is very original or fully succesful displayed, but musically there was a move for the better. The songwriting is developing quite a bit, while the arrangements and the playing kept all the beauty and tastefullness they had since their debut, especially the fine vintage keyboards sounds and the great guitar licks and solos.
The production and mixing are excellent. If you like the more laid back kind of prog, you should check this album. It is a good starting point to know Metamorphosis music. Those talented guys are really goind strong in their career and I hope they can deliver albums like this one in near furture. Rating: something between 3,5 to 4 stars. I´ll give them four because those guys are getting there fast.
