Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I picked this up after running across a couple Syzygy tracks off of "Realms of Eternity" (one downloaded from Amazon, the other available in some prog magazine compilation disk). Being impressed enough with those 2 tracks, I decided to look into some of their other music, and I ended up buying this.

Having read the bands "bio" on line (which was really more of a "where we are now" thing than a "what we did" thing) I discovered that their vocalist was new and had only performed on their latest disc ("Realms of Eternity"), and they'd handled their own vocals prior to this. Given that I wasn't BLOWN away by their new vocalist (he's decent enough, just too "nice" sounding for what I like in a rock vocalist) I thought some of their older work might be interesting.

And it is. Very nicely so. These guys have some very tight chops and an instrumental balance that I tend to like a LOT. What do they sound like? They're in the harder rock vein of prog, but not leaning to Dream Theater so much...more like harder-proggier-rocking Kansas (minus the vocals and violin) with a touch of late 70's Rush. Heavy distorted guitar is the forefront of the sound, but there are plenty of keyboards (mostly organ, some piano, synth) mixed in as well, and the drumming is solid. Don't think they had a full-time bass player, so I'm not sure if the keyboard is handling some of the bass riffs or maybe the guitarist handled a bit o' bass as well. Given the Squire-Lee additions to the "Bass in Prog Rock" category, it's a shame they didn't find someone to better sonically fill that void. But that's a small complaint.

Positives for me:
- Some really creative, energetic, rocking, riffing and playing on this
- Mostly instrumentals on this disc!
