3 stars Steve Thorne is barely known for Prog listeners majority. Some know them as "that guy who served as a guitar tech in ARENA / PENDRAGON crew". This is unfair. You must give his CD a spin. Or few more :)

Steve plays songs, not your Progressive Bombastic Show-Off Kind Of Thing. LastFMs tags claim he's a "singer-songwriter", and this is rather true. His style is close to PORCUPINE TREE mellowest songs, less dark but not weaker for sure. So, 3 stars here only for the fact that it's not quite Prog (in my book at least). Nice and enjoyable tunes, some are pretty catchy, in best Neo / Crossover Prog traditions (just look at the list of the men who helped him with his album!). If you want to make yourself an hour of good singing / playing but feel incomfortable if it could be not Prog ;), then take Steve's CD and enjoy. This part is slightly better than the first one was, so all I can say is recommended!
