    the best, imo, are The Visiter, and Immortal?

    the new one is a vocal cd; quite unlike the rest

    my heart still goes out for Songs from the Lion's Cage

    my mistake

    Disappointed in it; nothing like their others. More like a Rock album than a Prog album.

    I enjoyed it. The songs are fairly tight and focused with less of the progressive instrumental breaks that we're accostmed to from that band. The sound is different enough that you have to view this as a different band and approach in terms of expectations. Once you do, it's not too bad at all.
