4 stars There is so much here that I have to look at it as a whole piece instead of a bunch of seperate songs. There are times on the CD where I am reminded of Queensryche, Dream Theater, and Yes. Not in a derivative sort of way, but as in a peer sort of way!

The compositions are fantastic! Speaking as someone who is disgusted with the current music scene this CD is going to get a lot of play. It's top quality and not cookie cutter. Progressive without being self-indulgent.

The tones... ah, the tones!! Wonderful use of the full specrum of tones! It was just two weeks ago when I was on vacation talking to a friend (old bandmate) about the guitar tones being used on Elton John's Captain Fantastic CD. I was telling him how the current music scene doesn't even consider choosing from any of the tones that the legends of music chose from, and BAM you've got them on your CD. Standing ovations! While I'm talking about tones let me talk specifically about guitars - as I said above, great stuff. The fact that you're using more overdrive than buzzy distortion...

Ah, never mind. I guess I don't really have a point to any of this other than I LOVE this new CD! Really, if they don't get rich from this it's because the word never got out, not because of the quality of the product.
