The second album from this US band who debuted back in 1993 with a self-titled album.
Iluvatar is a five piece band with a lineup of keyboards, guitars, bass, drums and vocals. The standard lineup, in other words.
And we are indeed deep into neo-prog land again. The likes of Arena, Pendragon and IQ springs to mind when listening to this one hour long album. But I would also like to add Threshold here. I think the vocals points towards Threshold.
The music is very solid with some very good guitars and keyboards. I don't mind listening to neo-prog albums like this one. Not for a bit. The music is a bit on the dull side and there is no great tracks here. Nevertheless, this is a good album.
