2 stars One of my first ventures into prog with knowing it actually IS prog. And also music that I listened, when I entered this site. I heard lot praise about him and so I was wondering what's all the fuss about. There are ideas I like, of course. But performance, (or the form it is presented in) is not so good by my opinion. Relying on heavy sound, there's switching between these hard parts and calm, acoustic guitar accompanied by vocals parts. After all, these tracks are not much full of good elements, it sound more like some casual rock outfit. Shame when considering all these names in this. It is melodic (oh yeah, there are melodies), but for what ? I can enjoy heavy parts, I can enjoy calm ones. I can even enjoy combination of these two, but not in this way.

3(-) for something that not only isn't interesting, but also disappoints. Not recommended for most, just fans that can "get into" this. Though there are good ones, like Saline, in overall it's mostly catastrophe. Good idea destroyed by the form in which it's presented. Maybe too modern-like (using elements I hate, or that shouldn't be in prog, as voice modulation, or some cheap tricks), maybe too unbalanced. Some tracks are good though, really. This is why I gave 3 worse.
