Mindflowers are a mostly instrumental prog fusion band whose music is infused with a hint of hardened metal. Their overall style has some similarity to bands such as Liquid Tension Experiment and Tribal Tech. The album has many changing colours and distinct moods which are displayed in ever-changing tempos, crunchy rhythms and searing guitar parts. There is a good balance between all-out aggression and carefully-crafted, melodic reflection. Nevertheless, the abiding and most prominent musical style on offer is gutsy fusion that has elements of prog and metal included. In this respect, there are occasions when the style of bands such as Dream Theater are brought to mind.
