I'll admit, I've been anxiously awaiting this cd for a few years. Their website kept us fans hanging on that there would be some fantastic new cd "soon", then it was a double album, then it was delayed again, then slimmed down to a single cd again (77 minutes long!)...I was honestly losing hope that this could ever live up to expectations (much less ever see the light of day!). So it could have been a bruising first listen when I got my copy (direct from the band, btw), as I was all set to give it a very scrupulous critique.

Not to worry - they nailed it.

Realms of Eternity is a 5-star cd, prog lovers. I give it 5 stars willingly, lovingly, with no regrets. LOVE it!
There is some chamber (flute, cello, violin) accompaniment in spots; the album starts beautifully with it. But what I like about these guys is that you can tell that they are rockers first; yet they all possess great prog-worthy chops, as well as a unique songwriting and compositional style. Their arrangements are almost classical in format, and include plenty of odd time signatures (though perhaps not quite as jazz-fusion-y as their previous album "Allegory of Light"). Influences this time still include ELP (Giunta's keyboards), Rush, Yes and a ton of others; but some Kansas(?) too this time around, especially with the presence of drama and majesty that occupies many of these songs.

The band added a bass player (Al Rolik) since their last album. (I can't hold that small shortcoming against the band any more!) Believe me, it adds a nice dimension to the music. They also have a guest vocalist on some of the songs - I'll admit that the vocals and harmonies are stronger and better overall on this cd than on either of their two previous cd's. (Almost Styx-ish in places.
