5 stars Ex-singer of Big Big Train, it cames as no surprise to hear the influence of that band listening to this first solo's cd. A cd that contains a long suite of six songs links together. The arrangements gives you a interesting variety of sounds, sometimes exotic and other times classical. The vocals are is very enjoyable as all the rhythmn section. We are treated with some beautiful guitar and keyboards passages with piano and acoustic guitar to make the transition between the soft and heavier parts. The presence of guest musicians like Guy Chandler, Dave Meros, John Mitchell and Lee Abraham have helped established the great atmosphere and sound of the whole music, but what stands out here, it's the amazing quality of the compositions that take you back to the best Yes 70's classic period, with the modern sound of the Neo prog bands of today.

So it was a very interesting surprise to hear this cd because i am always afraid of trying something of a solo project, but this time it didn't feel like one. It wouldn't be fair to give this one a 4 stars and maybe a little soon to make it a 5 stars, but since it's closer to 5 and that there is no 4 and a half, i give it a 5 stars.
