Upon listening to the eagerly anticipated third CD release from Break of Reality, I find myself in familiar territory with this quartet's music. On first run through, I'm trying to determine in which direction the music is taking me. On my second listen, I think I'm beginning to understand where they are headed. And by the next time I run through these ten incredible tracks, all I can say is "take me along for the ride BoR - I get it"! Be prepared for a unique emotional journey with "Spectrum of the Sky".

No other group that I can recall in recent history has elicited such a broad range of emotions from their music. Is it the absence of a vocalist that allows your own mind to decipher what the music means to you? Is it the gut wrenching timbre of the cello, the weaving of so many different harmonies, or possibly the impact of the intense percussional variations? Break of Reality has really come into its own with this collection of songs. When you listen to "Spectrum" for the first time, one thing is perfectly clear - Break of Reality has a very serious and distinct purpose in mind from the first track, right to the very end. Coupled with stellar audio quality, the disc won't be leaving your rotation for a long, long time.

This CD has so many stand-out tracks that it's difficult to highlight just a few. The title cut "Spectrum of the Sky" is an immediate draw. A captivating introduction leads into a typically enticing BoR lick that will be running through your mind for days.

I had first heard of this group while walking around Central Park in NYC. They sounded awesome LIVE! and was hooked ever since. I am not usually into this type of music, I don't even know the genre, but I felt something when I heard it.

I highly recommend.

This is ultimate coding music. You can get lost in your thoughts to it. You can also drive down the road and dig into it. It is well balanced, thoughtful and pretty. It is unafraid.

I tend to stay away from classical music, but I like this.

There are no words large enough to describe the emotional grandeur this quartet's music provokes. Music is not music unless some sort of emotion is felt and this album is a roller coaster ride from start to finish. Thank you for playing in Central Park and Thank You for creating such an amazing Break of Reality for my soul.

Wow, these musicians are phenomenal! This group has it all, classical complexity, raw power, and soothing melodies that are seamlessly woven into fantastically dramatic scores (with names like "Che") which are sure to win an Academy Award. Check out their live performances on YouTube - truly amazing.

If you like Trans Siberian Orchestra, then I recommend Break of Reality. It has that mix of classical and rock that I love. I really love the title track and Che.

After being introduced to Break of Reality through a track on this album (Vintage), I instantly fell in love with the band. Unlike many other primarily string bands, which mostly do covers (a la 2chellos, Vitamin String Quartet, The Section Quartet, etc.), these guys write all their own music. One of the best things about this is how much they experiment and play around with different musical stylings. This is most obvious in Anodynia 2 and to some extent Che.
The one complain I have with this album is that, unlike their last The Sound Between, BoR chose not to include a second cd of acoustic tracks in addition to their main album. This is a very minor complaint, however, and not enough to take away a 5 star rating.
Overall, the music here is absolutely phenomenal and I would recommend it to any fan of this kind of music, and possibly non-fans as well!

I just want to rate it and not give a review, I'm no expert, but that makes the amazon crabby. At any rate, I really enjoy this album. The songs come off as reasonably original for my ears, and nothing jumps out at me as a rude cliche. I greatly enjoy running to this album.
