3 stars Way too comfortable.

If this albums quality was as high as the title-track's, I could understand giving it five stars. That is not the case. I can definitely see the effort put into this album, and it's for sure a very solid record, but not deserving of its score. Wobbler borrows a lot from Yes and, sometimes, King Crimson. Even the vocalist sounds a lot like Jon Anderson. Musicianship is top-notch for sure, and soloing works very well.

The first track and title-track is very good, and has one of the best instrumental sections I've heard in progressive rock, phenomenal track. Rendered In Shades Of Green is a nice short interlude. Fermented Hours is the second best from the track and it has a very fast pace, with a middle-eastern vibe. It has some slow sections around the middle. Foxlight is the last track and to be fair I found it to be disappointing, it feels long for the sake of being long and there really isn't too many memorable melodies (to put it nicely).

This is a good album, but far from a masterpiece. I appreciate the musicianship but to be fair it isn't enough to save how mediocre composition is (as some points). Three Stars. Good, but not essential.
