3 stars Australian prog band Unitopia decided to call it a day in 2014 after 4 albums and more then 10 years career, but the head behind this band Mark Trueack together with his mates Matt Williams, Dave Hopgood and Tim Irrgang decided to team up with well known musician Guy Manning and going under the name of United Progressive Fraternity. Also there are some top notch invited guests here like Jon Anderson, Steve Unruh , Steve Hackett and few more who done a great job. Well, as I expected the sound UPF offers is not far from Unitopia atmosphere, but in places is little less intresting and with less progressive aproach. I definetly call this first baby named Fall in love with the world issued in 2014 progressive rock, but the progressive elements are few to my ears, the only great tune from the album is the longest one Travelling man (The story of ESHU), clocking around 22 min with exemplary musicianship and ideas, there are some great instrumental sections, keyboards, guitars are brilliant and the vocal passages aswell. Unfortunatly the rest are only ok, nothing special about it. and I prefer Unitopia much more, an album like The Garden Marck Trueack will never be part of, definatly the best album from his career untill now. All in all decent release, nothing groundbreaking here only good and nothing more. The art work made by famous Ed Unitsky is asyou might imagine colorful, intresting and very well made. 3 stars for this debut.
