4 stars Rocket Scientists second efford is much more progressive and mature than their debut. The songs are longer, more adventurous and the musicians show their talents with more freedom and confidence. But the basic elements of their sound were kept: great keyboards, tasteful arrangements, fine songwriting. Although the title and the cover might suggest a prog metal album, this is not the case. Itīs progressive music with some classic rock overtones, a bit like Kansas best moments. Erik Norlander is surely the leader of the pack and does a great job with his Rick Wakemanīs influence. But, fortunatly, he is the kind of leader that has a band mentality and never let his ego get in the way, giving the other members room to show their skills. They play for the songs and donīt go noodling like so many others do. The solos are usually short but very precise and skillfully done.

All songs are good and contrary to the first one, it is hard to point the highlights, since the tracks flow is smooth and I end up hearing the whole CD from start to finish. Not the best RS record but a big step forward. Recommended!
