3 stars I love this album (so why only 3 stars?). It is NOT prog. Even though Brett Kull and Paul Ramsey from Echolyn are a part of this group and GEG's previous releases had a lot of prog flavor, it's still not Prog. I highly recommend this to MUSIC lover's of the Natalie Merchant/Sarah McLachlan ilk. Fabulous lyrics, the incredibly silky voice of Jennifer Nobel, well crafted melodies, catchy hooks, highly polished musicianship and crystal clear production.

This is music for couples, played loudly winding down the coastal highways. It's hard for me to choose one tune as THE standout track. It flows along seemlessly, which is hard to believe since three different producers pieced this together; Jerry Marotta, T-Bone Wolk and Brett Kull.

Kulls guitar gets its moments to shine but he plays within the context of the tune. Ramsey's drum work is solid with the less then stressful stuff he played with Echolyn. Dwayne Keith's keyboard work is more ambient and fills the backgrounds nicely. Eric O'Dell lays down some nice bass work that enhances the tunes and keeps them moving.

Obviously GEG is looking for the limelight, and why shouldn't they? Is writing smart thoughtful tunes, even in a pop setting, wrong? Not at all. Buy it, even if it's not prog. Your wife or girlfriend will like you better for it.
