4 stars Andy Tillison doesn't have a powerful voice and doesn't veil his love of Peter Hamill but has a delivery that really makes you listen to his interesting satirical views on a superficial and materialistic world. The music uses the classic prog sound fused with something very contemporary (ie drum 'n' bass) and these are obviously very good musicians. The drums when in the rock vein sound a bit thin and alternate with some really intense dance rythms perhaps hinting that they are played by machines but i have seen these chaps live and they have live drums which do sound like this. They also play around with samples (eg. the explosion on Space Junk, stolen from 'The Final Cut' is particularyl effective) and trigger little bits of the vocals via sequencers (Migrane) creating something (in my opinion) very exciting. Imagine if Van Der Graaf had Keith Emerson on keyboards and joined forces with the Prodigy you would be somewhere near. Purists worry not, as if this description turns you off there is plenty of keyboard solos and tasty guitar. Enigmatic and dynamic stuff.
