5 stars This one took a few listens for me. It is definitely in the same general mold as their others, but was just enough different to cause a little shock to the system. I feel like there is a little more movement in the guitar, just slightly heavier sounding as well. There are three outright instrumentals and four vocal tracks, although even the vocal tracks consist of a fair amount of instrumental content, especially the thirteen minute "The Yellow Ship".

The tight and somewhat jazzy sound are still here, but throw in some dissonance and some King Crimson like winding guitar lines and it makes for a great listen. Also at only 43 minutes, it does not overstay its welcome. In fact, now that it has grown on me, it leaves me wanting more, which is always good.

Another winner from this under appreciated band. Please give them a listen. Several listens in fact!
