4 stars Relatively mid-length, relatively short songs, relatively variable material, ranging from more pop to more Prog themed songs. Certainly not entirely consistent album in a way how vintage Symphonic releases are.

Well, talking about symphonic (as in orchestra), just listen to these string arrangements together with something that sounds like more mainstream version of drumming (if you know what I'm talking about), in song Square One almost reminding Vannessa Mae's most popular song. Almost. And even less reminding, because there's something more in this music, it's here present all around, non-typical song structure, twists, melody (whatever you call it).

Hell, Three Steps even reminds Depeche Mode on some kind of Prog drugs.

But it's actually funny & interesting to listen these. Truly cheeky attempt to attract listeners, "Soul Envy" has a lot to offer (and tell). In Green and Bue Berets is on the other hand uplifting and more rocky. However, if there is overall theme to be found (hard to find something unifying these tracks), it would probably be word "dreamy". Because that's what most of these songs are. Needed to say that latter "half" is better than first part.

4(+), most probably I suppose.
