4 stars Well, how many real prog hipster friend do you have? I mean, real proggy hip? If I'd chop off most fingers of one hand I could still count them... And I'm not speaking of my god pals sharing happy memories of the Floyd, early Genesis, early Marillion and the like. Those with the insatiable appetite for new, daring adventures.... So, anyways, if you're congregating next time, your prog hipster friends and you, all the two of you, this is the album not to play then! This is more the not-quite, but still a little proggy album to play to wives, girlfriends or friends without our fine delicate and dedicated tastes ;-)

This definitely is one of the albums that indeed deserve the "melodic prog" label and there's nothing wrong with that, really! Beautiful melancholic music with more than a hint to Pink Floyd (Gilmour era mostly) and traces of other usual suspects of the melodic corner, Camel, Alan Parsons Project. I also seem to hear a certain timbownessness in Svein Hansen's singing (but again, more melodic than the esteemed Mr Bowness).

And what when that hipster friend comes for a listening session? Well, I'd recommend Stephan Thelen's Fractal Guitar or Kotebel's Cosmology Suite ;-)
