This review is excerpted from Clayton's July 5, 2004 The Prog Life column found here -ed.

Three instrumental tracks grace this demo EP, each track in a different style. The first falls flat due to an unimpressive Tangerine Dream-like electronic outing that suffers from a na?ve and underdeveloped melody. After hearing the opening track, you'll be surprised by the second, which takes off with a jazzy energy that brings to mind Herbie Hancock. Impressive piano playing on this track, as well as an interesting arrangement, with guitar and synth trading off with the piano. Finally, the third piece is what you might call prog-metal light. Good guitar work keeps this vaguely Satriani-like song moving right along at highway speeds. My suggestion: Drop the electronic compositions and go with the jazz! The packaging is professionally manufactured, although, as is often the case with independent releases, the artwork comes off amateurish.
