5 stars What if old Genesis and old Kansas got together and had a child...

I've been listening to this album for about a month and was at a loss at how to describe it and that's about as good as it gets. Sure the kid is smaller (a quartet) and can't play flute, but that description seems to fit the music as good as anything. The guitarist does remind me more stylistically of Rich Williams than Steve Hackett. This child takes after it's father more so than it's mother, even to the point of it's core member, Michael Parmenter doing costumes for live performances from what I've read. You get four complex pieces, three of which are subdivided. Parmenter does the keyboards, which do dominate the music, but not in a bad way, along with a few other instruments, including violin. It's a lyrically intense album that has no campy moments.

This 1997 album appears to be the end of the line for this outfit unfortunately, so on the bright side, if it clicks with you, there's not a lot of titles to get to collect everything. Have to round this one up on the rating.
