4 stars Trying to write a review of this album without mentioning that G name.......

The Watch is as much known as a Genesis cover band as for their own albums. It should therefore not come as a surprise that their own studio albums is pretty similar to Genesis too. And I mean Genesis and not the development of their sound Marillion under the tutelage of Fish did in the 1980s.

But it is still wrong to brand The Watch as "just a Genesis clone". The Watch sound is far more modern and based on this century than just the 1970s. In short; they sounds like the modern band they are. The quality of their material is also great. I see other reviewers is using the word "magical" here. Me too is using that word because the music The Watch tends to drag the listeners into the speakers and into a world of magical songs, vocals and vintage keyboards. All the songs here are truly great, with Damage Mode and the title track being the highlights. But the rest too is magical and world stopping. In short; an excellent album for those who likes symphonic prog with whiff of neo prog.
