4 stars If there is melodic rock,how about melodic prog?

If you look past the first track, which sounds like a bad attempt on a Beatles sounding single,there is indeed some very catchy music to be had here. The harmony vocals are strong,with a very crisp guitar and some great keyboards plus the a great rhythm section.Yes the music and singing/lyrics do become a wee bit twee on occasion,but the greater parts far outweigh the twee. As mentioned Styx could be a reference if you like their Equinox and Crystal Ball albums,which I happen to do.

The song 'Roses' which you can hear here on Progarchives is very good example of this album in general.It moves gently around between different moods.Nice

I can't really add more that has not already been mentioned except that I might be a touch generous,so between 3 and 4 *'s.
