Musically they are somewhere between melodic Hard Rock ala Magdeburg and a complex Kraut Prog with epic references in the vein of Octopus. So they hadn't settled actually whether to play proggy music or more radio-friendly material and this is reflected throughout the album. But they were pretty talented both as performers and composers, as the material in here is solid no matter the style executed, mostly driven by hard guitars, alternating keys between flashy and more spacey deliveries and expressive German vocals.
There are also some well-adapted jazzy tendencies on the electric piano parts and an atmosphere reminiscent of other obscure Teutonic Prog acts of the period.
