2 stars This is not THE Modern Prog I enjoy.

I have to major complaints, to be short. First - this is not that much Prog, if you didn't know, musically it's close to 80s "adult pop" stuff - imagine a mix of AOR, Art Rock and New Wave on one album. Here's my second complaint buried: if this is mostly Prog Pop (instead of expected Modern Prog), where have all the melodies gone? If you aim to play poppy Prog, you shouldn't be that humble with catchy melodies, my fellow UMs. As a result, we have 54 minutes of fine muzak, but not more than for 3-5 spins. Otherwise it'll bore you to death.
