3 stars This album was a project from Billy Sherwood, who was famous for his presence in Yes as bass player in their late period: "Open Your Eyes" and "The Ladder". The result was a decent album played by an ordinary band, oriented to play good music but lacking some creativity. Even though influences from Yes are more than evident; their music has its own features: even darker and more solid bass guitar lines, heavier riffs and an interesting atmosphere that makes the album very enjoyable. Billy Sherwood is an excellent vocalist; the band has good keyboard lines but definitely poor guitar arrangements. Sometimes there are wide passages and spaces that make the music a bit arid.

Anyway, a good and positive album, don't expect more than this. I do not mean it is a bad album, just plain neo progressive that grows under the shade of classical band: Yes.
