The first disc in this set is titled Abandoned, and features ten tracks of hard driving progressive rock with just a hint of heavy metal & jazz. "Outside the Wire" is an example of the band at their heaviest, sounding not unlike veteran band Tiles, with a hint of Rush and during the softer parts you can even detect some Steely Dan influence. Funky bass and layers of guitar textures complement some alluring vocals on the atmospheric "Letting Go", while the title track offers up tasty piano & synths, emotional vocal stylings, for a more symphonic prog style. Another highlight here is the rousing hard rock number "Fables of Fortune", chock full of aggressive guitar work and tight drumming, showing off the bands heavier side.
