3 stars I have to piggy back on what Allan says above: the vocalist IS a distraction. Now mind you, when you play music that sounds so much like a certain band, (Genesis) the vocalist must be top notch. But I hate to slag off on anybody. Yet, Mr. Mabray's voice is just too colorless and monotone. When he sings well, like on the track "Chaos With A Crown Of Gold" I'm not so distracted, in fact its a damn good song. But for most of the album it seems that everything is just a tad restrained, especially in the keyboards department. I'm waiting for the band to burst loose with something powerful, but the vocals kick back in and flattens it. Most American Neo prog bands fall into the same rut. A decent album that just seems like it could have been much better. 2.5 stars really.
