Commented REDEMPTION's primary songwriter and guitarist/keyboardist Nicolas van Dyk: "'The Fullness of Time' is another 'suite' of sorts, but this whole CD is more song-oriented than the previous CD, so each of the four pieces stands alone as an individual song. It is less thematically connected than the 'Desperation' suite from the self-titled CD, although there are common compositional threads, particularly at the end of 'Transcendence' which combines some of the vocal melodies from the preceding pieces. At any rate, it plays like four songs rather than a 20+ minute beast. Much more digestible that way."

As previously reported, Alder was a guest musician for one track on REDEMPTION's self-titled debut (released on Sensory in 2003),and he joined the group on-stage at Atlanta's ProgPower festival in September of that year to perform this song. Alder and van Dyk also collaborated previously on a track on the first ENGINE CD.
