2 stars A step backwards.

Progressively speaking, this album isn't very progressive. This is one step away from being Audioslave rather than knocking on the door of King Crimson or Yes. That being said, it isn't composed poorly or just completely unworthy of your time, it's just not very appealing to me. Porcupine Tree and The Mars Volta is about as mainstream as I go, and this is a touch more than their albums.

The music here varies from energetic, to mellowish soft-rock. Those in the neo-prog vein I feel will enjoy this as it exhibits some of the qualities found in neo albums. Also of note is how this album differs from their debut, which had a more angsty sound, as this album is much more mature in approach even though I find the overall music of lesser quality.

As should be stated, this album I feel will only appeal to those of the younger ilk. So be forewarned. Also, I feel that those wishing to explore Dredg should start with their most progressive and complete album, El Cielo.
