3 stars A difficult nut to crack, this one.

This US band has so far released two albums. This is their debut album and one I find difficult to pidgeon hole.

The music here is a mix of indie rock, hard rock and a Bad Company copy. Most of the first songs sounds like Bad Company at least. Then the vocals take a dive into indie rock too. On the top of that, there is also a lot of symphonic prog and neo prog here too. Neo prog in the vein of the new Marillion post Fish is a good description too. In short, I am running out of words to describe this album.

The music is competent enough with a lot of small, interesting details. I like them best when their sound is taking a detour into classic 1970s rock and in particular; Bad Company. But the neo prog here is very good too.

The vocalist is superb and so is the musicians. Both when they are in heavy prog mode and in their more indie rock style.

With the exception of the rather short Breakdown of the Heart, there is no really great songs here either. The songs are rather long and interesting. But not great. This is a good debut album though from a band which combines a lot of genres into one album. I cannot really pidgeon hole this band at all based on this album. A strange album, it is.
