5 stars I've been a big fan of Resistor eversince their excellent debut was released two years ago. And frankly: this one is even better!

The first part of the albums contains 5 great lenghty heavy prog songs. The songs are not as 'immediate' as the stuiff on their debut. They need some time to sink in, but once they have they certainly delever the goods. Great variety, great playing, great songwriting.

The second part is a long 40 minute song called the Land of no Groove. I read in some of the other reviews that it was some sort of parody on 2112. Well, the song certainly has an early Rush vibe to it and the lyrics are very funny. But parody? I dont think so. The piece is just too damn good for a parody.

I think this is the best album I have heard in quite some time. In a perfect world this album should be bought by all progressive rock fans but certainly by all Rush fans (like me)!
