5 stars Heh, Chipacah said it very nicely. I'll add my part in this PA play: I'm Lightbulb Sun fan. Big fan. In fact it was my first PT album I heard (by recommendation of, let's say friend), because I was long afraid after I heard their first album. Yes, with this second track (...Island). But this, this get me into their music instantly. Every song that is here has its history (except first one, which I used to skip, but don't understand why I did it at all now). So let's assume that I was first listening this in December 2008, there's even story related to this album (like with most of my favourite albums), with ill-fated relationship and romance with certain girl, who loved this album as well. There are many reasons why I rate this so well. Memories, fortunately good ones, pleasant music, melodic music, thoughtful lyrics, rememberable songs (I remembered them all very quickly), great replay value (twice a day ? sometimes yes, songs for tired soul and body ? also yes) and also prog foreshading of their future (and previous) albums. Something like "Taste the band" in family package. You won't get harm, but you'll be treated well and rewarded also very nicely.

5(+), and of course, the instrument on Last Chance is banjo.
