4 stars Very well produced, great sounding heavy prog rock--much like their debut I Am Anonymous. As a whole the album has great recording and engineering of very competent musical compositions with great theatric vocals from DAMIAN WILSON and awesomely controlled performances from all instrumentalists--including keyboard player Adam WAKEMAN, bass/Chapman Stick player Lee POMEROY, and drummer Adam FAULKNER and guitarist Pete RINALDI. The journey the band takes me on makes me feel as though I am listening to a modern, heavier, almost-metal version of Jesus Christ Superstar. These guys are all polished pros. I just wish there was something new here, something wowing. It is very competent, beautiful sounding heavy prog, but nothing much more. All songs are good--very polished with pretty amazing sonic clarity and power. It's just missing something. And it's too long. (73 minutes.) Maybe the real problem is that it does, in fact, sound so much like their debut; it's as if they have just rehashed previously travelled material with new lyrics. Or maybe it's the feeling that I'm listening to the modern version of FOREIGNER.

Best songs: the prog epic 6. "The Science Within Us" (13:14) and the finale, "Secular Soul" (10:36).

3.5 star album marked up for amazing sound and top notch musicianship/performances.
