From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars Yes :Marillion,Porcupine Tree,Pink Floyd influences are notorious.

And you may add Gazpacho too(since Night).

Marillion because of the vocals,Pink Floyd because of the guitars.

Gazpacho because of the atmospheric melodies.

Excellent vocals ...but melodies are quite monotonous.

It seems to be listening a new album from Gazpacho or a Marillion album in the line of Marbles....

It is a pleasant atmospheric prog rock but not more than that.

I feel a lack of display of more melodic keyboards and guitars.

So the sound is good,the vocals very good and melodies pleasant...but nothing very new here.

I think that Porcupine Tree ,Marillion and Gazpacho will always be steps ahead.

3 stars for me
