3 stars New formula adopted by many bands.

From Peter Gabriel, Rush to Sylvan, bands like more and more the approach of 20-80% prog- rock approach. There'a no long synth solos or time breaks; they focus more on catchy vocals and du jour guitars. There you are with this album in your hands.

I've prefered more digging in the song structure, frankly. It's not bad, it's just a-n-o-t-h-e-r band delivering an album that's been made before. I've seen worse, but this style of music is soooo easy to listen, much like the Roll the Bones album of Rush. Some parts kinda grab my attention, they are varied (nice orchestration and an actual keyboard drive!) but too few unfortunately.

Unitopia is serious band with solid instrumentation...just use it! I mean, how much slow-dancing-Hall-&-Oates saxophone can you take (biggest sigh ever)?
