4 stars Very fine band from Sweden. They don´t sound like anything I heard before, but this group also have some fairly, easy-to-find, influences: Queen, Supertramp, Rush, Saga, Yes, with some Pendragon and Dream Theatre here and there. Still, they are quite original. Great musicanchip in all aspects. The approach is very melodic, sometimes bordering the pop, but not really quite because the arrangements are way too complex, too quirky and the tempo is always changing. Eclectic prog, indeed!

Today´s Report is their debut album, but it does not sound like that. In fact is so well recorded, produced and played that I thought it was their most recent, really, when I bought it. The songs are usually short, very well crafted and varied. The vocals are indeed very particular (reminding me of Supertramp´s Roger Hodgson in some parts). Not all the songs are my cup of tea, but none are bad either.I usually hear the whole CD without skipping a single track, which is not very common nowadays.

The brazilian version comes with two bonus tracks that are almost as good as the original ones and a live video for Welcome (where you can see that lead singer Herman Sanning is quite charismatic) . This is one of those CDs it takes a little time to get used to. But then, you keep playing again and again on your CD player. I´m looking forward to hear their other CDs. 4 solid stars..
