Most the time the band crosses the line between Progressive Rock and Metal, and addition of saxophone is definitely one of the biggest, if not biggest, selling points for this record.
The album is about an hour long, and it includes seven songs. The sixth, self-titled track is the centrepiece, being the longest piece here, clocking over 27 minutes. That kind of gives you an idea about how important this song is for the band. It is easy to notice how much effort was put into creating this song; it comes in slowly, it features interesting keyboard arrangements, flute, saxophone and perfect vocal execution. This lengthy suite is a great fusion of stylistically different elements ranging from prog metal, jazz fusion, ambient, to classic rock, folk, power metal, and even more than that. Masterfully crafted and executed passages, well-thought guitar and sax solos, joyous rhythmic changes. This description actually explains sums it very well about the record as a whole.
