2 stars Well its a good score as a normal pop-rock issue, but obviously If I liked to regard this one as work in progress I should rather say it's a failed attempt to innovate the best (actually this is valid for a few albums) prog stuff from Neal Morse...I know that since the publication of works such as "The Kindness of Strangers" , moreover by considering a good part of the material inside "A day for night", their music was regarded more pop rock oriented-sometimes in the vein of blues rock- than any other bands of the new progressive era in the USA. Their previous rock album with a few hints of the old progressive breaks through (the first one without N. Morse) was better, above all the prosecution after Neal, the music being their usual strong impact on the common listener, as a matter of fact...but this time these new S.B. are a different thing...there's no trace of their typical style and this fact is able to affect my opinion (the score should be inferior if S.B. were still a prog band).

This is not prog music,but you could choose to hear a different modern stuff from a normal band of our times, which is not bad anyway!
