Throughout, there is an undoubtable jazzy and fusion hue as evidenced on the engaging ‘Labyrinth’ with its shifting time signatures and jazzy organ fills whilst ‘White Mirror’ could even be Lee Ritenour in his late-seventies commercial heyday.
‘Familiar Surroundings’ is a good example of the band’s output.  The proggy passages could be Spock’s Beard but always grounded in the jazzy groove.
If Katatonia is now characterised by  Jonas Renkse’s broody vocals adding a distinctive air of melancholia to the proceedings, Bastian Berchold’s  jazzy vocals permeate ‘Second Relation’ and leave an indelible mark.
