4 stars This album really took me by surprise. Another Trip to Earth featured the wonderful "Take it on a Dare" (sounds like a totally progged version of Styx with James Young singing lead), but much of the album really left me with a stomach ache. it's understood why that album is so maligned in prog circles. I get the impression they're not exactly sure what to play..

Their previous offering, Angel Dust I really feel is MUCH better overall. The music, for the most part is more genuine prog. Some of the music is acoustic, sounding like a totally progged Crosby, Stills & Nash. There's some great stuff on here like "First Stone in the Pyramid" and "You and the Wind", plus the prog suit of "Bondage". Love the use of mandolin here. The only song I can do without is "Take My Eyes". This is a seriously underrated album. I guess if you heard Another Trip to Earth and thought it was lame, your impression of the band is not going to be favorable, but I found Angel Dust surprisingly great, one of the more underrated albums I have heard.
