1 stars Calling this an LP would be a joke. Calling is progressive rock would be an even bigger joke. What this album boils down to is twenty-nine minutes of sugary pop music that almost hurts my teeth.

"The June Jar" This decidedly pop song is okay, but has virtually no progressive elements with the possible exception of the bridge.

"Ack Ack" This throwaway track has people talking, laughing, and a female singing a line from James Taylor's "Your Smiling Face."

"She's All I Want" This song uses a blues chord progression, adds distorted, whiny vocals, and does the same thing for three minutes.

"Driving All Night" A pleasant but dreary acoustic song, this is one of the more enjoyable works, but again, there isn't really much to speak of.

"Why VHF?" The longest track begins with a bouncy electronic groove, bringing in the ebb and flow of a guitar and some calm, cool vocals. Ultimately, it's a track unworthy of its length, as it maintains the same beat throughout- I would call it high-quality Muzak.

"Wrecking Ball" This largely acoustic song belongs with the dross heap that is FM radio, especially with lines like, "I kissed you before you kissed me; I missed you before you missed me."

"Cinnamon" The final track is noisy, with buzzing vocals and really nothing inspiring happening. Loud drums end the track.

Epignosis | 1/5 |
