2 stars I find it hard to classify this album, which is almost entirely instrumental (despite some perfunctory vocals). There are certainly influences (though fairly well "channeled"), and there is certainly creativity going on. There is also fine musicianship involved. (N.B. The previous reviewer is correct about the Hackett-influenced guitar, though I also heard a little bit of David Gilmour as well.) However, the album as a whole left me somewhat "flat." There seems little that is "compelling" in any way, and, indeed, much of the album has a "journeyman" quality to it: indeed, parts of it seem somewhat "lazy." In addition, the creativity does not always show clear direction or inner logic: many sections sound as though they were strung together because they "could" be, rather than because they made any particular sense. Still, it is a pleasant album to listen to, is certainly worth hearing (if not keeping), and probably deserves another half star (if I were able to give one).
