4 stars Fantastic music. No, this is not Spock's Beard or your early 70's favorite Genesis album but it's a good mix of those band's styles. VERY appealing Hammond organ sound similar in mood to Tony Banks. The bass is a bit more like Squire. The guitar is more modern sounding ala Beard. The music is very melodic and driving. Not really that neo-progressive at all (this band should be labeled as Symphonic Progressive Rock) as the music is full of analog keyboards (including synths) with many wonderful, shifting moods. The songs are not overly difficult but definately NOT simple either. Very many changing rhythms. This is serious prog with a slight commercial/70's style. Modern yet still grounded in a Yes/Genesis motif. If you can enjoy modern music like Spock's Beard, mixed with an early 70's Genesis sound, buy this CD. Most Fruitcake albums sound similar so if you can't find this one, start with the oldest one you can find. Highly recommended.
