OceanAeon It's just a wonderful record, and the perfect music I need to listen in this moment. Favorite track: Crowded Corridors.

wjohn Really an astonishing achievement and difficult to describe beyond Ed Buckley's term 'neoclassiprog'. A nod to Steven Wilson on one track, but otherwise uniquely their own sound. Lovely! Favorite track: Os Lunatum.

Rhokeheart A very powerful and soothing female vocalist over well composed music. Favorite track: To Human Misery.

Juan Diego Martín Encinas Confirmation of what i heard in the first one. This one is, if i can say it, more rocker. More agressive guitar sounds in some songs, the perfection in the vocal work, and a certain melancholic touch that i love. Favorite track: The Simple Story.

Rich Hims Darker than ~ and with a little more conventional guitar, but still bewitchingly beautiful Favorite track: To Human Misery.

Ed Buckley This is neoclassiprog music. In their second full length release this talented Russian duo continue to perfect a marvelous fusion of rock and classical music. It's not just rock with strings, it is a true fusion. They have succeeded in making a truly marvelous recording. You really have to hear this to appreciate what they've accomplished. Superbly done, guys!

about

This album was funded by 227 Kickstarter backers and 113 fellows that didn't have access to Kickstarter, worldwide. The work on the album (including the fundraising campaign) started in March'13 and ended in April'14 and finally, here it is, the album.
Everything became possible thanks to all the people participaiting in the campaign, Marcel van Limbeek who invited us to London to work with him and organized the campaign, his amazing team of Luca, Mark and Anna and with incredible support of Danny Cavanagh and Gavin Harrison.
Love to all <3
