5 stars Orphan Project offers a crisp sounding American prog sound (in the vein of Kansas and Spock's Beard) with deep lyrics of hope and reliance upon the grace of God. Lyricist and singer Shane Lankford has a lot to say: on OP's first album he shared how his being an adopted orphan also led to his discovery and embrace of being adopted into God's family. On this, OP's second album, he further explores spiritual issues with great, engaging progressive music.

Orphan Project is a very pleasant surprise for the Christian who also loves progressive rock. Their second full-length album continues the excellence of their debut outing ? heavy prog rock with great hooks and accessible choruses.

This reminds me of early Spock's Beard and Kansas.

One review labels them "Peter Gabriel going heavy."

Many of the songs are disguised worship songs, in that they don't seem like that at first listen (after all, they are hard progressive rock songs). Only when you listen intently to the lyrics do you realize what's really going on.

For instance, from Angels Desire:

"You bring me shelter / You refine / All that I am / Unchain and free / This burdened soul / I'll fly where angels desire"
