First song sounds like something from Dan Swano's Moontower album. Interesting.

This album is much better than I thought it would be. The album version of Withdrawal actually sounds much better than it did on Youtube. The new keyboardist does a great job too.

What in god's name is this? WOW, a band actually taking risks and experimenting. Sounds like Ayreon meets Amorphis meets Dream Theater meets Belakor. Love it! Good work guys, this is simply incredible!

I love these clean vocals!
