The inspiration for this album came from an exhibition comprising of pieces of art created by patients of a psychiatric centre. Each song explores a different manifestation of madness.

The Good: It is music.

The Bad: As many new prog bands are heavily influenced by already established acts, when listening to them you are sometimes left with a strong sense of déjà vu. This isn't always a bad thing as many add a new twist, or revive older styles whilst still making them sound fresh and enjoyable. However after countless listens to this album I can only describe it as a bland, C-rate Pink Floyd clone that brings absolutely nothing new to the table. There are no songs that really stand out and, whilst concept albums are meant to be enjoyed as a whole, just reaching the end of this is a relief.

The Verdict: The only mad thing about this is the $14.99 price tag.
