Prog Reviewer
4 stars I got this on the strength of positive reviews on this website, and agree with all previous reviewers 4/5 star reviews.

This is the first Arena LP I have purchased, but it will certainly not be the last.

It is an fantastic album, neo-prog at its best, and I say that as a huge H era Marillion fan.

Rob Snowden's vocals are utterly amazing, and the keyboards of Nolan, rhythm section of Pointer & Salmon, along with great guitar work by Mitchell complement him very well.

The album has a great rock feel, but also includes the rich textures of sounds that prog fans long for in modern bands. It is certainly a grower, getting better with each & every listen. It is entertaining, original, and does not fall in to the trap of trying to sound like a copy of classic prog bands.

Highly recommended and thanks to ProgArchives for the previous reviews.
