2 stars It's not because you have a singer that has a voice similar to Peter Gabriel and a music similar to Genesis and IQ that you can deliver music of the same caliber. It's been a while that I have been impressed by one of their albums and this new album is not an exception. The second track "Disappearing Act" show a different sound more in the Depeche Mode electro atmosphere, it's not a bad song. The rest of the album is the typical The Watch, and with a band that is struggling to reach the greatness of the best Neo-Prog bands, IQ in particular, the composition level is not very high. You won't find any epic song where you can feel the progression of the melody through some tempo and mood changes, only the last track "After the Blast" give me some pleasure with some interesting instrumental passages. Not recommended, only to die-hard fans.
