Everything from The Roots of Dreamers structure, pacing and ideas are completely workable inside of its genre, but for what positives it builds upon, it severely lacks in basic production qualities, such as performance, and layering. Added to the damning, this is a progressive record, littered in bridled piano playing and guitar melody, yet it falls flat because each instrument does its own piece in isolation. Why haven’t the sections been cut on top of another?

This being a mash-up of progressive and doom dirge, its intentions are clear with well thought track planning and coherent song structure - if the only beef resides with production and performance, then they’re on the right track.

6/10 Powerplay issue #134
