Complex, layered and accessible at the same time.
That's why they're one of my fav bands, always shipping the good stuff.

Cold Dece,mber Night song title is awesome, reason why I listened this album and also not. I know olders ones, I am not big proger, but here are something what I listen it and one part is my professional music interests, my type of metal and bands, new albums always are good to listen. One day I will go beck to this band and re listen older ones, but this I put for rest a while, maybe till ms awards, because I dont remember any other prog album in this year what I like.

Great Album! Really feels like they went back to more the "Seraphic Clockwork" style. Lots going on in each of the songs and while a few are pretty long, none of the songs feel long. My only gripes are that the story really makes close to no sense and the album is extremely short for a Vanden Plas album. Really coulda used one more track. Ah well, good stuff anyway.

Highlights: Three Ghosts, Devil's Poetry, Ghost Xperiment

Felt like going back to this one again after not hearing it for quite some time and it's still a brilliant record. From the top of my mind it's my second favourite record from 2019 (right after Atlantean Kodex - The Course of Empire). These guys are top class stuff!

I agree that the story doesn't make sense for me either, probably would have to read the lyrics a bit more carefully but I don't really care about that. The shortness of the album however I find to be a positive thing, the albums now a days are almost always 10 or even 20 minutes too long. 47 minutes is the perfect running time!
