Album Review

Say this first: The electric drum sounds are dinosaurs technologically and come dangerously close to ruining the whole record — but most specifically on an otherwise dynamic track "And I Saw, as It Were....Konelrad." Beyond that, this is a spectacular collection of songs that highlight Livgren's prowess as a composer better than any of his previous releases and his ability as a performer free to explore musically with little restraint. Livgren himself plays all the instruments on this album. Though most of the sounds are electronically generated, it is clear (beyond the drum sounds) that he went to great lengths to imitate the sounds of acoustic instruments — it would be difficult to distinguish his sampled flute sounds, for example. Great guitar work abounds, and it is mystical, almost dreamy in places. The more subtle tunes really make the record ("Colonnade Gardens," "The Far Country"). His flair for spooky writing can be heard on "A Fistful of Drachma." Album-closer "Tenth of Nisan" is reminiscent of Ravel's Bolero in feel — and Livgren specifically acknowledges his influence. ~ Mark W. B. Allender, Rovi
