Staff review by

Subsignal strikes again! This all-star progressive band is still referred to as Sieges Even part two, so whether you choose to see Touchstones as the second Subsignal album or the fourth Sieges Even Menses/Steffen-era album, it is doubtless that this is the most coherent one of the bunch. And coming from the person who loved The Art Of Navigating By The Stars to death, it's quite a recommendation, considering the fact that the aforementioned release turned a lot of heads by defining their dreamy, elegant prog rock/metal style.

Rating: 9 Awesome album, definitly made up for the fact that Ark didn't take off.

Rating: 8 Man, I have a hard time getting into this album. It's a shame because I love Subsignal's debut and strongly believe Paraiso is one of the most underrated albums released in 2013. I wish I could understand why.

Rating: 9 I've been coming back to this album a lot recently - it's truly lovely and uplifting. Feeding Utopia, My Sanctuary. Size Of Light..., Lifespan of a Glimpse and more are just great songs. The two albums that followed it are both good, but I don't feel like either are as dynamic, expansive and emotive as this one
