Dark Horizons review on At The Barrier

“It’s the Jones/Swita combo of songwriting and dramatic arrangements that cause the chills that come with Dark Horizons.”

“No less an iconic figure than Steve Hackett plays on The Lighthouse.”

“The icing on the cake on Horizons sees Luke Machin playing what’s possibly the best solo I’ve heard from him.”

“Sweeps of ethereality add haunting or reflective moods and Troy Donockley puts in a shift leading on Lullaby. His pipes magically transforming into a searing lead guitar part.”

“Two brilliant songwriters and an all star supporting cast make make Dark Horizons a brilliant progressive rock record that’s not just for fanboys like me! 9/10”
