4 stars This is the first time that I rate an album of this genre. I usually rate progressive metal albums. Even if the artists that are included here, originally belonged to prog metal bands(fates warning, dream theater the majors of the groups) the music is much simpler than the aforementioned bands. But what I've heard is solid and fits to my ears. Excellent bass playing by mr.Vera in the tracks that he participates,Portnoy good as always and Matheos builds the music with his diverse riffs. The first 2 tracks are the hits of the album, more straight and catchy. I want also to refer the tracks 'All gone now', 'bigger wave', 'better', 'our town' which deserve our attention. Especially 'our town' is very interesting due to the banjo use. Many may dislike Moore's voice and actually it is not good because the man is not a singer. It sounds very sterilized and monotonous but you can get used to it. Generally, it is an album different enough from what I listen but it is actually very good. I would recommend it to the majority of people and that is why I give it 4 stars.
