3 stars This is the follow-up to the debut "More Than Meets The Eye" and it continues with that same pleasant, melodic style of Neo-Prog. Same lineup as well.

"Touch" opens with the guitar soloing tastefully before the full sound arrives around a minute.Vocals follow. It does settle with keyboards 3 minutes in but it's brief. It settles again late as synths pulse slowly. "In Isolation" is mellow with reserved vocals. It kicks in at a minute then settles back again as the tempo continues to shift. "Daylight Fades" is laid back as the vocals join in. An enjoyable song, very pleasant in fact. It does pick up after 4 minutes instrumentally. Nice section.Vocals are back after 5 1/2 minutes. A tasteful guitar solo arrives before 7 minutes.

"Everywhere I Turn" is a catchy mid-paced tune with some harmonies. "A Life Is All You Need" is mellow with vocals. "The World On Your Side" opens with acoustic guitar and flute.Vocals join in then it kicks in before 1 1/2 minutes. It settles back some as the guitar and vocals lead. It picks up 3 minutes in with keys then vocals leading. "No Sacrifice" features vocals only early on then it kicks in instrumentally around 1 1/2 minutes. A calm 6 1/2 minutes in to end it.

If pleasant and relaxing music is your thing then you should check this band out.
