From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars CoN's second album is an ambitious effort. Combining complexity and catchy melodic choruses, the band aims to gain a broad audience. I think that they will. This album definitely deserves to be listened, not only by the readers of this site. That is, because CoN's music is not prog in its traditional definition. It combines several modern rock elements, though I think that it is basically (some kind of) alternative prog rock.

The album flows pleasantly and all songs are full of energy. The main thing here is the very good clean melodic vocals, the clever guitar lines, the solid performance of the whole band and the numerous breaks, which are so characteristic in modern US adventurous rock music. Though the band's style is not something entirelly new, this album has so much quality, that this impression is rather a minor detail. Besides, the emotional element which is a big part of the band's music is really convincing, and this is more than just difficult.

Very good album, and great cover art. Recommended to all open minded prog fans (sounds a bit odd).

Favourite songs: "Erratic", "Impossible Landscape", "It;s Just A Ride".

DeKay | 4/5 |
