Sven B. Schreiber Steve Rothery is one of the "good guys" of prog. I appreciate it very much that his music doesn't sound like "Marillion" at all, although he's a founding membef of the band. He's a brilliant guitar player, but fortunately doesn't misuse his skills for mere egomaniacal presentations. The keyboards on this album are played by another excellent musician and composer in his own right - Riccardo Romano ("RanestRane", "Riccardo Romano Land"). Favorite track: Yesterday's Hero.

Dogger Dog Words can't describe what a monster instrumental progressive rock album this is. In today's environment of self-indulgent neo-prog, it is refreshing to hear an album like this - it isn't out to prove itself, it just "is." Steve's soundscapes are lush and textured, his touch is accurate - a mixture of finesse and muscle, without being gratuitous. And who better to invite along for the ride than the two other guys named Steve: Hackett & Wilson. Favorite track: Old Man Of The Sea.

Russell Whyman I suppose atmospheric is the best word to describe this music. It is obviously a labour of love and is very well written and played.

What else would you expect from a founder member of Marillion? I think I originally described this music as relaxing but though you could chill out to it this is to some extent doing it a disservice. There is much here to engage with and you can easily get carried away on the musical tide.
