Heavy Prog

4 stars Despite no drums, bass, keyboards - all the heavyweight riffs taken out, and all the icy atmospheres gone - this is PT laid bare - just the melodies. However, it is still really good - which is surely the mark of a great band.

It's really nice to hear it this way, and with a lot of fun to boot - the best of which is Steve Wilson's humorous attempt at Normal - the best moment of the album.

Nice to hear some of the older songs played in this way, and good to hear John Wesley given some more well-deserved limelight.

A nice relaxing listen, especially when you feel a little tired, or want to stare at the sky listening to music on a sunny day when the birds are singing!

Recommended, although the no metal for the metal-heads in this one!

The crowd were obviously enjoying every moment of this, and were highly disappointed when it had to finish - a feeling you left with yourself.

It grows on you - by the 3rd or 4th listen, it sounds even better.
