3 stars A nice melodic and atmospheric neo-prog album; an album for late night wind-down listening, rather than early morning get-up-and-go motivation! Although there are some long, quite complex compositions here, the emphasis on accessible melodies means that this album is quite poppy.

For me the stand-out tracks are 'In Your Eyes' and 'Living in the Moonlight' - two accessible and soulful numbers.

At times the lyrics can be a little melodramatic and the music a little too bombastic; perhaps for this reason the album doesn't always grab one in the way that the very best prog does.

I feel compelled to also report that there are some very cheesy photos in the CD booklet and one of the band members is a dead-ringer for Nigel Tufnel (though I haven't held this against them).

Nevertheless, overall this is a good, but not essential, album.
