4 stars This album is really diverse in styles as it has a blend of hard rock bands like Audioslave, Led Zeppelin; Southern rock bands like Bloodrock, Lynyrd Skynyrd; neo progressive like Marillion, IQ; and of course the sounds of Spock's Beard. The track that is really killing me is "Of The Beauty of It All". Oh man . what a melodic song this one is. I enjoy the neo prog style of this song especially during opening part and the floating keyboard sounds produced. It's so terrific! It reminds me to Marillion "Misplaced Childhood" album. The other track that also attract me is "The Ballet Of The Impact", "Surfing Down The Avalanche". Dave Meros plays wonderful bass lines in "Climbing Up That Hill". The vocal quality of Nick d'Virgilio is in my opinion much better than Neal Morse. This album proves that the band still can do excellent compositions despite the departure of Neal Morse to pursue a solo career. Recommended. Keep on proggin' ..!

Progressively yours, GW
