The North German quartet Seasons Of Time wants to know it again seventeen years after their debut album. According to his concept work "Closed Doors To Open Plains", it deals with the question of why man, as the only living being on this planet that could actually lean back in a relaxed manner - in a corresponding society - always strives for more, regardless of whether fellow human beings are left behind. This interesting question is illuminated by the only remaining original member Dirk Berger (bass, keyboards, vocals, guitar) and his three new comrades-in-arms with a mixture of soft art and pro rock and spherical moods. The godfathers were Pink Floyd, Marillion and Eloy, who have always been the role models of the group. Especially the passages carried by keyboards know how to please. The vocals, which have a lot of content to transport on the concept album, should be more intonation-safe in some places. And the drums are more varied. Six points therefore only with benevolence.
