4 stars Listening to this beautiful album I am brought back many, many times to parts of STEVE HACKETT's early albums: Voyage of the Acolyte, Please Don't Touch, Spectral Mornings, Defector, and Cured. Even the vocals evoke comparisons to many of the softer sides of those five albums. Why this album does not rate "masterpiece" status to me? It is because the instrumentation often feels a little too computerized, the compositions aren't really as adventurous, innovative, and diverse enough, and there is a slight "cheese factor" to many of the syrupy-sweet parts (of which there are many). As I said at the start, however, this is an album containing some hauntingly beautiful passages--not unlike the afore-mentioned prog-master, STEVE HACKETT.
