3 stars "Looking Thru" is a jazz-rock routine. There's absolutely nothing groundbreaking, or original with this album, but it won't offend fans of jazz-rock and fusion.

The only track that stands out, in my opinion, is opening track "Eternal Spiral": not only for metallic synth noodlings (or that's electronic percussion perhaps), but for the overall structure and dynamics. It's enjoyable, and it's certainly closest to prog rock. However, the entire albums is not really prog rock, more a mellow fusion. The tracks are forgettable, I won't say boring (unless you dislike jazz-rock/fusion), but they're all somehow "melted" into an unique, long track which is passing by yourself, not drawing your attention, but not being bad neither. There are some absolutely awful brass moments at the end of the "A" side (try to imagine a bad brass section in pop) but on the other hand, there are nice and spacey strings often utilised through the album's length.

This one is certainly non-essential, but it's a pleasant routine if you are fusion fan. Nothing more to add.
