Even with their third album, Eternal Flight can't really decide if and how far they want to advance into the progressive area. For the most part, the French deliver well-hung power metal, whose spectrum ranges from the obligatory double bass speeder to the bombast department and balladesque elements. But is Eternal Flight a band at all? D.R.E.A.M.S. was recorded ("Diminished Reality, Elegies And Mysteries") almost completely solo by singer Gérard Fois (ex-Dream-Child). Only in the intro and at the final DIO cover "Night People" a complete band line-up can be heard. Fois was able to win drummer Ricardo Confessori (Angra) as well as the two string witches Chris Caffery (Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Savatage) and Mark McGee (ex-Vicious-Rumors) as guests. But also this circumstance should not hide the fact that "D.R.E.A.M.S." was again rather average.
