4 stars I'm a bit surprised no one reviewed this one yet, for it's an excellent addition to any progrock-collection. If Then Else may not be their best album, but it shows more confidence and direction than the meandering How To Measure A Planet? (which I actually and strangely enough like more for that reason). There's not a single bad track on the album, but also no real highlights. Amity and Saternine would come close, but I also quite like Herbal Movement and Analog Park. Great track-titles btw. Worst cover ever on the other hand.
