4 stars In my opinion the overall rating for this album may be about correct (Good, but non- essential) however I think the reviews are a bit harsh. I think I know the reason though - This is an album that is NOT neo-progressive in the STRICTEST sense yet it is also not heavy or adventurous enough for those who do NOT like neo-prog therefore it doesn't completely satisfy those who like one or the other. You almost have to enjoy the adventurous and the neo side of prog equally to really appreciate this music. Ad Infinitum are not quite as mellow as Genesis, Marillion, Pendragon or Arena BUT they not quite as adventurous or heavy as Rush, Yes, Gentle Giant or King Crimson either. Personally, I really enjoy the mix that Ad Infinitum finds on this album between the adventurous/heavy prog and neo-prog of today. I believe this to be an extremely underrated album. I urge those of you who have not given this album a chance to try again (or buy it if you don't own it). The musicians are TOP NOTCH and the songs really are put together very well. I just can't see anyone not liking this unless you are an extreme neo-progger or HAVE to have lots of heaviness or adventurousness in your prog. 4-Stars!
