3 stars An often enjoyable collection of songs which, Floydian inspiration withstanding, manage to catch the listener with solid, mature hard- rock melodies and a hefty helping of lush ballads.

The title track opener is easily the strongest track, with a big guitar introduction and catchy melody that begs to be sung-along to. Lang's vocals are strong throughout, and have just a touch of his German accent to give it a unique tone. Those seeking anything especially complex will be disappointed by the bands usually sappy lyrical content and lack of instrumental creativity; however, the lush arrangements and generally enjoyable sound of the almost pop tunes will please fans seeking a fun listen akin to early Hogarth era Marillion-- a sort of radio-friendly set of songs with artsy inklings. I recommend getting World Through My Eyes first, then picking this one up if that one hit you right.

Songwriting: 2 Instrumental Performances: 3 Lyrics/Vocals: 3 Style/Emotion/Replay: 3
