4 stars I think it is very unfair to knock them so harshly just because of the obvious intentional similarities to Yes or ELP etc. As an album it may be a bit uneven with not every track hitting a grand slam but it is worth the price of admission for the song 'Rome' alone. The other standout cut is the opener 'wide Awake and Dreaming' and then the title track coming in third. The main reason I think this record deserves a listen before passing judgement is that melodic songs like 'Rome' just don't grow on trees. I'd rather have one 'Rome' than ten of what most other current prog bands are cranking out.
