3 stars Even if it is the second song from this album, The reasoning Wall really starts this work.

Some Yes oriented music combined with jazzy influence sounds quite fresh and catchy. The music is more complex and diverse than during the average opener "Diminished" which sounds as a weak Marillion Mark II type of song. Keyboards are heading on the Banks side as well. It is one of the best song of this album.

The band experienced into even more complex song writing and delivered "Carmilla" which is genuinely linked to Crimson. Dark, heavy and including some fine mellotron lines, this song is another highlight of the album. It is the third time as well that the band changed from musical inspiration.

And it is going on with the new wave influenced "Faces Of The Petty". It is an upbeat and heavy pop track which is quite unexpected on this album. On the one hand, this release is very much diverse but on the other one, I have to say that it is lacking in continuity. You need to embrace lots of different styles of music to like this record from the start till the finish.

There is also one song available for Floyd lovers: "Blueprint" is such one. Even if it sounds derivative, I like this song very much. The wonderful and Gilmouresque guitar solo is probably not alien to this feeling.

IMO, this debut album shows that the band is still hesitant as to what their music will sound like. It is a good album though which digs into the roots of some prog giants.
