2 stars Act III. That would make one conclude there also exists an Act I and an Act II. Chances that I will seek them out are pretty low though. Act III is an ok album but nothing remarkable. The style is very derivative of Coheed & Cambria, and since also that band rarely manages to capture my attention, I have little need for a copy.

Well not an exact copy for sure. They throw in some Muse/Queen pomposity and the singer has a more versatile voice, resulting in a much lower Geddy Lee and Rush factor. All songs are fairly basic upbeat modern musical rock and cover a reasonable range of sugary styles, making it a fairly pleasant but rather un-absorbing listen on the whole.

I'd say this is an ok indie rock album that could appeal to Muse and C&C fans. For me this is way too tame and sweetened to make anything of an impact.
