Total Time: 52:08:00

Follow-up to the much acclaimed debut Album released in 1992, the line-up of the band is still the same but instead of delivering a complete instrumental album, Dogma this time around has asked some friends to lend their vocals on three of the seven tracks.

The album opens with the fierce instrumental "Midday" with tons of great sounding keyboards and some superb guitar interventions from Fernando Campos. Fernando switches to some outstanding classical guitar in "The Search" whilst the inclusion of some divine sounding flute in "Burn The Witch" sounds like a cross between Camel and Focus. Instead of using synths and/or samples, this song is augmented by real violins, viola, cello and a complete choir to give it a much warmer feel. A winner! An equal amount of divine voices open "Hymn" before a Shadows-like guitar is introduced on top of some inventive keyboards and fretless bass. Thunder and rain introduces the otherwise bombastic "The Landing" which also incorporates some Gregorian chant tucked away behind some subtle classical guitar. Finally "Twin Sunrise" is the most laidback of them all almost being cosmic music at times which produces a nice backdrop for the outstanding bass playing.

A recommended album for lovers of Steve Hackett, Camel and Sagrado Cora?ao da Terra.
