Fitting that the cover is more than a little reminiscent of Yes's Relayer. This is indeed a full on Prog album, artfully composed and filtered through the perfect lenses of Vince DiCola and your old video game console.
Favorite track: Preschtale, Pt. 3.
I found my true north in the land of shining stars,
I'm moving on my way from morning Earth to evening Mars.
I'm rising through the silence of Mother Universe,
And faith in God that helps me keep my inner force.
