메탈은 아니지만, 이 앨범은 들을때마다 감동적이다. 존 페트루치가 스티브하우의 기타주법에 영향을 많이 받았다고 말을 했는데, 음악을 듣다보면 DT의 음악에서 익숙히 들었던 스윕피킹도 들을수 있다. AOR, 멜로딕 하드락을 좋아하는 팬이라면 대만족할 앨범. 1번~4번곡까지 4연타를 추천.
level 20   90/100
oproti debutu je jemnejšie, ale opäť obsahuje výborné a nápadité piesne, ktoré sa prejavia po viacerých vypočutiach. Štýl: melodický prog/arena rock/AOR

They've gone more Pop-influenced after their first release. Listening to this album, there were sporadic moments where I wished they hadn't done the chorus this way, or the riffage that way.
level 17   100/100
들을 때마다 느끼는 거지만 뉴에이지 그룹 Cusco가 프로그레시브 록을 하면 딱 Asia의 음악이 나오지 않을까 생각해본다. 전 곡 다 쩐다!
