Wow! First prog metal record I fell for in a long time. Instant buy after first rotation actually. This one is a real gem. Getting rid of a singer to make it fully instrumental and let an insanely good sax player do the "singing" – bold choice and, to my ears, the only one that makes sense. Hell I'd love, love, love to see that sax guy, Nikita Metelski, have his status changed from "guest" to "member"... Excellent, rich, colourful and very enjoyable album!
Favorite track: Siberia.
