1 stars No point in buying this album if you have Yes, Gentle Giant, Genesis, Emerson Lake and Palmer etc etc. Each song is just taken from any of those bands and the lyrics have to be the worst lyrics I have ever heard ever "You gave me a home then you left me alone.. f**k you!" Hmmm..

Neal Morse has to have the worst voice I have heard in Prog Rock.. He seems to be on an ego trip on any album he has done, no one else gets a look in.

No songs I would class as classics as it all sounds like stuff thats been done before.. "The Water" and "The Light" could have been a lot shorter, and seem to be padded out too much.

The only saving grace is the drums.

Save your money and purchase The Flower Kings "Unfold The Future" instead.
