3 stars Then my first impression of this album was an easy an listening pop rock, a simpler and female version of Marillion Fish era, with catchy melodies, and nice keys arrangements. The Marillion influence is evident, Shattered Ego, is a rip off of "Script for a Jester tear", the intro, the structure of the song and the final coda has the same armonies! There are other songs that remember the Marillion style, "Empty streets" for example remember me a b-side of Marillion, Tux-on, for the drum, the style of guitar and the same armonies, ok fortunately there are diversified arrangement of piano and a stunning keys solo that makes it very pleasant. Their Masterpiece is sure the long track "Haze", where is possible to see this band to shine, the song is very structured with several time changed and beautiful instrumental interlude between guitar and organ, especially in central part of the track. The other song are a bit weak, and in my opinion. Highly recommended album for all MARILLION/neo-prog fans, but just 3 stars.
