5 stars Today's Report is a very, very impressive album. Somehow they've created a very distinct sound, which I will vaguely describe as a lighthearted and fun Dream Theater, but different due to the excellent vocals of Herman Saming and the excellent compositions and solos (and I mean EXCELLENT) by Ola Andersson and the gang. Those who think Dream Theater is too much wanking and not enough song, and those who think James Labrie is annoying, and those who think there's no good new prog need to check Today's Report out. Now, besides what I've already said about this great album, each song has different winding time signatures, melodies and overall tone and feel from the last song, making the entire thing an interesting listen. Talk about complex and accessible, it sounds like a slightly faster Yes. They create an accessible symphonic hard rock combination that you can't find anywhere else. An amalgamation of nearly every good quality of prog we've found from years past up to now is in full effect in Today's Report, it's essential because you probably will not find anything like this in the prog scene right now, and it's a breath of very fresh air. As Gatot says, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
