Prog Reviewer
3 stars It is quite strange that this band made its entry into the archives. It is a straight forward pop-rock band whose music is definitely heading the fine territories (''Private Paradise'') but whose prog textures is close to none IMHHO.

It doesn't prevent the band to be interesting although very much derivative of the great ''Echo & The Bunnymen'' of which I am found of (but you might know this already).

Most of the songs are quite on the long side for this type of music (straight rock). Still, the melodies are pleasant and none of the tracks featured here should be considered as weak. On the contrary, most (if not all) of the tracks are very much pleasant and deserve a detour even if ''No One Leaves This Earth'' sounds a bit chaotic and loose.

I quite like this melancholic rock music: pleasant and not too dramatic. Pieces like '' Punish Yourself'' are absolutely not a punishment at all. Fine rock music for sure. And even if almost nineteen minutes is quite a long way down, the haunting epic ''Parted Forever'' is pretty much digestible (but not great either). For sure that they have listened to ''Radiohead''.

This album is probably too long to capture the interest from start to finish. As such, I will rate it with three stars. A good album after all.
