2 stars All in all this album is not too bad. BUT: the first thing I recognize is the singing. It is in a high region and the singer does not reach eat smooth. He works in his highest region and this does not sound rather comfortable. Then there is the drumming. It's a bit Phil Collins like. But, as the booklet says, no clicktracks were used - they should have used them, the timing seems week in some places. The Keys are in a symphatic Genesis way, which is fine, if you like it. Some guitars sound a bit too much like Steve Hackett.

A Genesis-Clone? No, not really, but you can hear there Influence a bit too much, at least for my taste. I mean, I like the old Genesis stuff, but somehow I don't get along with this album in the same way.
