3 stars The sophomore album from this band is much more polished than their debut one (not even talking about their earlier EP's of course).

My concern is that the music featured in here sounds as déjà vu. The influence from "Porcupine Tree" and the likes is too much obvious and it sounds as if the band was looking for some sort of inspiration away from their own creativity.

This being said, there are some extremely good songs featured, like the great "Same Ol' Road" which is a pure jewel of a melody. Another very well achieved one is "Whoa Is Me" which is mixing wild beat, passion, sweet vocals and some weird sax.

As their model, there are some heavy moments of course available. For those who like this, "Of The Room" is a delight. As during their first album, there are plenty of interludes which add basically nothing to the whole. Oh yes: this is a "concept" album?But I am not a fan of these short pieces of music.

Anyway, this is a good album; but I would have hoped some more personality. Three stars.
