3 stars Not quite as ambitious or creative as Light or Darkness, Day for Night none the less continues the band's streak of solid prog albums, easy to listen to and easy to enjoy. Day for Night has a straight ahead, approachable sound-- led by Morse's infectious singing (although of mixed quality overall), and the other Morse's much more interesting guitar creativity (admit it). The rhythm section continues its sterling work, although Meros' bass is a little overlly bombastic at times. There aren't as many textures or depth to the songwriting overall, but the band delivers fine performances and is clearly excited about the material-- melodies soar with enthusiasm, which along with Morse's gigantic grand finale solo are the highlight of the album.

In the end, Day for Night is a fun divergence for fans of the band who will doubtless enjoy the material for what it is-- a smart band getting the sing-along bug out of their system.
