4 stars This band worships 'The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway.' According to their description they borrow heavily from Gabriel-era Genesis. I definately agree with that, but when I heard "Dr. Pill's Backlash Ballroom" I immediately thought none other than the LAMB. It's very RIO approach harkens on the sound and style of "The Waiting Room" down to a T! Some may think this band lacks in originality for their Gabriel-era Genesis style sound, but I do not think that is a bad thing. Picking up where Genesis left off after the lamb, North Star could be part of anyone's collection that enjoys the sound Genesis created in the early 70's. Though, Extremes does have mediocre production...I almost want to think that they tried to record with the same equipment Genesis did back then. HaHa! Overall this is a decent record that has its flaws, but epic songs and enjoyable keyboards with a nod to Genesis goes over well in my book!
