    The second album by this Greek band who lived in France. I've been told that their two other albums are both non-progressive, but this one is a REALLY progressive album! It's incredible diverse and features almost everything: heavy progressive, trad/free-form jazz, Crimson-like passages, experimental and atmospheric Tangerine Dream-like Mellotron-parts, Canterbury-like jazzy progressive and grandiose, symphonic parts with church-organ and choir. The only thing that doesn't do much for me is the most far out free jazz on "Asymphonia". But the rest is GREAT! The opening track "Waiting a Long Time" is a great heavy-progressive track, and at the end the track suddenly turns into a part where it's played by a trad-jazz arrangement. And the album just continues to surprise the listener with unexcepted turns. "Sewers Down Inside" features Tangerine Dream-like flute-Mellotron and creates some great atmosphere. "Materializing the Unlimited" sounds like a good Crimson-instrumental with great Mellotron. "Suspended Recipe", "Roads" and "The Planet Vavoura" are all more in a Canterbury progressive vein. Jazzy, but the band managed to give it a sound of their own by using the Mellotron on these passages (not very common in jazz-influenced progressive). A great and VERY progressive album ...

    Thanks a lot, very good music... Hans, you need to download CUETools_2.0.9, http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=66233, I just used it to encode in wave and cut the tracks, it seems to work fine...

    Such a pleasure to find this record,
    it's only a very, very pity that you post one piece
    instead of the tracks.......
