2 stars Okay, call me a party pooper. There are times when reviewers are loath to review albums, for fear of getting hit by flying CDs. I almost don't know what to say, because these guys are obviously trying SO hard. And maybe that's the problem: they are trying way TOO hard. In doing so, they fail in almost every respect. Their influences include Jethro Tull, Marillion, Genesis, Gentle Giant and Rick Wakeman, among others. The problem is that they do almost nothing to "channel" these influences into anything resembling originality. Indeed, it's almost as if they never met an original thought they liked, and simply "sampled" portions (or at least ideas) of their influences wholesale, splicing them together with little or no coherent or cohesive idea or plan. Sections simply start and stop, with absolutely no "flow' of any sort (this is okay a few times, maybe for effect, but these guys do it continuously), and there seems to be no sense of "direction" at all. It also doesn't help that the lead singer has a weak, uncompelling voice. The only reason I didn't completely pan the album is because the musicianship is actually quite good, the group clearly has potential, and the album is worth at least one listen - to learn an object lesson in how NOT to write a prog-rock album.
