Seffi Starshine "The perfect progressive rock album doesn't exi..."

This is what it sounds like if the best songs from YES and the best songs from Gentle Giant had a love affair. By far the most epic progressive rock album in recent times. Favorite track: Myristica.

TheEliteExtremophile The title track comes first. It’s full of snappy bass lines and airy keyboard tones, and it maintains a light atmosphere throughout. “Myristica” is a peppier composition and features some heavily-affected vocals.

Aleister Kelman This album is a true saga of the mind, and has that elusive quality whereby it is intensified by locomotion. Top moment: vocals dropping on side B. Favorite track: Myristica.

Myristica 20:49
~0:00 - Eighth Sun Rising~ I want to dance As the eighth sun rises I’m afraid I’ll be An electric dream Sinking into the ocean ~5:13 - Stories Around The Opium Lamp~ (Spoken word) “My eyes were drawn across the room And then as I took the first look To my intrigue The antique furniture of the tearoom Took on the texture that one could only describe as frog skin My inquiring mind of course was bewildered by this complex But of course, everything I was perceiving was a product of such an inquiring mind” ~8:50 - Eighth Sun Shining~ (Spoken word) “A creature so terrifying Out of infinite darkness it rose A parasite with teeth and claws That could rip the very flesh from your bones” A Demon’s face, whose mouth opens wide To reveal another mouth inside As the eighth sun’s shining Shining down on me Waking up from cryosleep Waiting patiently for me A Demon’s face, whose mouth opens wide To reveal another mouth inside Another mouth inside His mouth opens wide ~11:55 - Seasons Change~ Time Lost in time Time Lost in time Hours into days Stop the clocks Tick tick tock tock Minutes slip away Seasons change Very strange The planets are aligned Sunsets rise Hurts my eyes A blessing here for humankind And the sun comes out! Before your eyes Shake the hornet’s nest And hear their cries ~14:13 - Storms Blowing In~ (Hear their cries!) (Storms Blowing And I Hear them) Mind gone, Mind gone Time stopped, Time stopped Eyes shut, Eyes shut Hope lost, Hope lost Storms blowing in (Mind gone) Waves hit my skin (Time stopped) Memories within (Eyes shut) Repent your sin (Hope lost) ~15:04 - Eighth Sun Setting (præfigunt)~ Come with me Through the leaves Through the trees Then you’ll see Waking up From a spell That a witch Cast on me Shadow’s song Move along Whispers on A quiet dream Introspect And reflect On the Sacred mysteries Now the eighth sun’s setting And it was all a dream I feel my body awaken As the Myristica leaves me A Demon’s face, whose mouth opens wide To reveal another mouth inside Searching on your own, those questions that you seek Myristica chose you, and not the masses Ignite the engines and start a new electron harvest Time reverses as we turn the hourglasses The Earth We’re rolling around the Earth A slingshot round the sun Just for fun Take away the memories of your quiet indecisions Looking for the answers that you know Ripples on the ocean of a long forgotten dream Sitting by the lakeside under the weeping willow


“My eyes were drawn across the room, and then as I took the first look, to my intrigue, the antique furniture of the tearoom took on the texture that one could only describe as frog skin. My inquiring mind of course was bewildered by this complex, but of course, everything I was perceiving was a product of such an inquiring mind”
