"The pieces move between the territory set by Mike Oldfield, Vangelis and electronic prog (from 1970 to 1980). They are the product of high quality songwriting and supported by solid musical technique. This collection really is a surprise to me as it opens the doors into a world where symphonically tinged prog rock lives in eternal splendour, it's beauty and magnificence never fading away... Enjoy this heady, well-packed expression of devoted prog rock by descendents of the masters of the genre, but also darting ahead towards new and stimulating territories. This is a collection designed to help you discover Protos' magic as well as Rory Ridley-Duff's clever solo outings."

"...Superb!! What lovely flowing, but not predicitable music, some great passages of play. You could play these tracks over and over again and not get bored with them. What talent !!..."
