2 stars No disrespect to the efforts of Fish on this CD but I am going to have to take a more critical direction in this review than the others have posted so far. There's not a lot of variation about this CD nor is there any new innovative ideas, Fish's style has been lacking in creativity since the his mildly successful CD "Sunsets On Empire" its like hes not able to grow or afraid to expand or something since that CD was released. There's two styles of songs to be found on this New CD the slower plodding type with a blues type drum beat or the 4/4 dance type that's got cred but lacks progressively speaking there's not a single song on this CD I would consider as prog its actually verging on alternative more so than prog. As far as Fish's vocals go his voice is still emotive has a certain drastic appeal at times calm his voice is about the only good thing about this CD however he is start to do the old Hogarth "waffle" in places his lyrical phrasing could sharpen up the material basically is sub par compared to "Vigil" or "Sunsets" the engineering sounds very over compressed and manufactured perhaps a tad sterile.

Not very good uninspiring and kinda sad .....
