1 stars The old question again: is there any need to copy old prog rock songs note for note in order to be considerd a great neo prog band? "The Walls of Babylon" intro is taken directly from Pink Floyd's "Shine On...", when the intro finishes we have "Watcher of the Skies" riffs all around -disapointingly the singer is not a copy of Gabriel-... I guess that there's nothing wrong in being influenced by those old bands but these guys have gone a bit too far... However, Nick Barrett is a good guitar player and he plays some nice solos (e.g. "Breaking the Spell"). There are some nice melodies but very poppish. The last guitar notes Barrett plays ("Am I Really Losing You?") should remind Steve Howe of something he played a long time ago. They should try to be more creative or they'll soon be sued by an offended old prog star.
