Prog Reviewer
4 stars Flamborough Head's second album delivers the neo-prog goods: tight compositions, extended instrumental sections which really show of the band's talent, and a hard-edged update of the Marillion/IQ style which takes on board some of the darker touches popularised by the likes of Arena.

Of course, there's no shortage of bands which offer a Genesis/Marillion/IQ-inspired sound, but Flamborough Head come across as being particular masters of the form - you get the impression that they're not just going through the motions and following a formula, but instead that they have a genuine understanding of and appreciation for both the compositional approaches of their major neo-prog influences and that of the 70s bands who inspired the early neo-prog scene in the first place. The Cyclops label can be justifiably proud to host such a talented and capable group, and Defining the Legacy puts them in the front rank of neo-prog groups, despite occasionally shaky production values.

Warthur | 4/5 |
