4 stars the group 's keyboardist and vocalist Steve Katsikas back after a break of six years: in 2007 the third album " Hollow " confirmed the blend of art-rock and power- ballads , "Automatic Day" follows the trail without misgivings. The quartet of Miami has clear ideas and shows no hesitation : " Oort ", " Apathy " and the metallic " Illusion of control" are the episodes most resolute of the CD - to "take it or leave it" , which admits of no exceptions to the rule of melodic prog hyper arranged . The drummer Mark Whobrey contributes to the most dynamic part of the operation, the frequent switch between acoustic and electric guitar by Roy Strattman guarantees airiness and hooks radio ( also in crimson style " Twin of Ares " ) , the pieces do not exceed the long durations , sometimes steered in the direction of Porcupine Tree but tend to be static and wordy .

As similar to the three predecessors, "Automatic Day" is probably the best work of the Little Atlas : discounted , predictable and conventional , but in their field faulted!!
