2 stars 2,5 stars really.

Heavy classic rock, doom hard rock metal, i like the heaviness of Black Sabbath.

Songs has different parts that alone wouldn't maybe be progressive, but when they're together and some of them are quite arty (well, different, but sometimes it's just because there's some different instrument), they seem to be progressive, and yes, sometimes they are little bit. The compositions are delicate. Melodic and doomed. Moderate (sometimes this album is a bit like Pink Floyd, btw). I think part of the heaviness comes from numerous great melodies.

Hole In The Sky is quite basic song, not at all boring but not pop rock.

Don't Start (Too Late) is sudden acoustic multi-layer clip between songs, i thought first it is a part of Hole In The Sky. Speedy. Makes me feel that the whole album might be one song. (But after next song started, not anymore)

Symptom Of The Universe is a heavy classic rock rocker, but almost speed metal, with acoustic more jazzy ending.

Megalomania has a light, and heavy, slow artistic start that i like, it goes to heavy and then basic rock that I don't like and that is a bit too long. And there's some mellotron at the end, but I don't care.

The Thrill Of It All is quite basic rock, it goes faster with same base at the half point of the song.

Supertzar is a weird nice instrumental with nice weird riffs and psychedelic choir, like Mike Oldfield and Rick Wakeman in one, my favourite besides Don't Start (Too Late)

Am I Going Insane (Radio) - synth and I somehow like the weird poppy song, psychedelic apathetic classic rock. Reminds me of Styx.

The Writ changes quite often, for example the previous parts are modified and played then few times (not modifying). I like it. Lol reminds me of Marillion.
