For those who like their prog confections drenched with luscious washes of mellotron and the occasional satisfying blast of synth bass (sounding like Moog Taurus pedals), this ticks all the right boxes.
A new album from FM finds them with lots to say musically and lyrically. Singable hooks, clever arrangements, lyrical lead guitars and dramatic Mellotron lines. Top notch melodic prog.
Favorite track: Borders.

Wonderful, beautiful, densely layered music. I'm glad I gave this album several headphone listens before commenting. It did not immediately strike a chord with me, but the more I listened the more I began to understand and appreciate how fantastically rich and deep the sound is. For fans of atmospheric and melodic prog, this is an excellent addition. Bass and drum work are exquisite! paliojen_black
