4 stars Four stars. This is definitely a great album, very fun to listen to. It's not as calm and spacey as albums like Ocean, it has a lot more of a pop rockish feel to it, but it still retains that progressive sound... mainly lots of psychedelic sounding keyboards and synthesizers and echoing ambient sounds. The guitar is really good as well. It has that hard rock sound amidst all the progressiveness that gives it a nice edge.

This album gets a 4 because while it's great and I recommend it to anybody who likes progressive rock, I don't think it's essential. It's not super outstanding, but it's still amazing. The songs are very memorable. The cover is very appropriate, it totally paints the sound of the music into a visionary landscape.

Each song is special, ones that stood out to me were Horizons, Child Migration, and Gallery, but all the songs are definitely amazing. Definitely recommended, this album is totally psychedelic and pop rock ish, while having that progressiveness intertwined between through the soaring keyboards and surreal sounding ambiance.

HammerOfPink | 4/5 |
