5 stars Despite living 'down under' this is the first time that I have heard of Unitopia. I find the 'Crossover Prog' genre hard to get my head around. So whether you consider this band to be 'Progressive' or not, this is an accomplished album. There is a good balance between instrumental sections and vocal melodies that allow each member of the band to display their talents. No doubt though, the partnership between Mark Trueack (vocals) and Sean Timms (keyboards & vocals) is fundamental to the quality of this album. Thoughtful and well delivered lyrics, catchy melodies, and well produced songs make this a gem in a year that has seen so much mediocrity.

Artificial explores the impact humans have on the world around them, and at times has an almost film score quality, which is perhaps not surprising given that Timms is a major contributor.

The band has described themselves as a 'musical adventure'. I look forward to seeing where that 'adventure' takes them next.
