3 stars This album is not too bad an effort even if it is not transporting me to heaven while listening to it. Still, it is the best of what the band has recorded so far.

But their weaknesses are still the same. Weak vocals (to say the least): emotionless and monochord. Their very much keyboards oriented music is pleasant though. Especially during the long ''Touch The Sky''.

I guess that this album has just to be considered for what it is: a non adventurous neo-prog offering. At times melodic (''The Famous Hill'') and quite derivative of course. But it is partially the essence of the genre. And this band fully falls into the category of followers by all means.

At the end of the day, it is not unpleasant music displayed here. Three stars.
