Another great album from the Canadian masters of progressive metal. It’s true that the guitar solos are less present than before, but I don’t think it devalues the album in any way. It's a good mix between the original sound of the group starting from "Kezia" until the last official album "Volition" which makes an offer that branches perfectly as an extension of the discography of the group for me. The rhythm section is very interesting as usual and the choruses are easy to remember and satisfying to listen to again and again. Very epic and the melodic side added by the orchestration completes the whole. I didn't know before the release of this album, but the singer had to relearn his art for this album due to exhaustion during the "Fortress" tour. This gives, in my opinion, a very particular flavor to the vocal, which will probably not be present on any other album of the group. In short, an excellent album and the "American-Western" concept or I don't really know what is really well done.
