A more synthdriven hommage to Mike Oldfield and musically much busier than Sanctuary I. On top of that there are drumparts (Simon Philips!!!), wich makes Sanctuary more Platinum-sounding, but also Crises/Discovery without the hitsingles.
Reed establishes himself as a musician/composer of his own. Not a cheap-rip-off, but an truly inspired musician playing in the style that made Symphonic Rock huge in the 70ies.
Favorite track: Sanctuary II Part One.
