4 stars Well this is a really good album of post-Neal era. Because the band is recovering that "proggy sound" lost in Feel Euphoria (the one that follows the masterpiece and Neal Morse's swan song: SNOW), and Octane, both OK albums but nothing special.

Besides here we found a compilation of good and catchy songs. Nick D' Virgilio sings really well and his drum playing is very good (drums specially on Skeletons At The Feast and Here's A Man)

Alan Morse is a very versatile guitar player and can make very beautiful solos (remember the one in She Is Everithing from Octane?) and here shines in With Your Kiss and The Slow Crash Landing guitar solos.

Dave Meros plays a Rick, need more to say?

Ryo Okumoto is a really good Keyboard player, with nasty Hammond sound.

Conclusion: In this band the fabulous musicians stay. This time they came with good ideas and the result is good music. This album is very listenable from begining to end.
