3 stars Indeed this can undoubtedly be called a post-Waters Pink Floyd clone, although I should stress that I do not necessarily attach a negative meaning to the term "clone". There are always styles, and after all much classical music from the same period resemble eachother and yet we do not say that Schumann was a clone of Mendelssohn. The music can still be good, although it may not rate too high in the chapter of "personality" or "originality".

At any rate this is really like listening to PF's "A momentary lapse of reason Pt. 2", and the fact that the voice of Yogi Lang sounds so much like David Gilmour makes it even more evident.

However the music and the interpretation fall short from their original inspirators, especially the guitar solos are far from Gilmour's. And a couple of songs are too shamelessly clones of actual PF tracks especially "In your dreams" which starts exactly as PF's "Sorrow".

Nice and pleasant music, well built and well played, but certainly not original and below the level of the real Pink Floyd. If you like PF's "A momentary lapse of reason" and you don't mind some cloning it's an enjoyable album.
