2 stars It's been ages since I last heard Jadis, so maybe I am misremembering, but they used to sound Britihs, no? This sounds distinctly American, with a tonality and harmonic sense that hearkens more to Styx and American Classic Rock than any UK music, Prog or otherwise.

In this age when so many modern Prog bands seem to have completely abandoned harmonic and melodic intricacy for simple melodies and modalities, it's particularly sad to see someone with the pedigree of Martin Orford, who has a supreme ear for melody and arrangement in IQ, contributing to this kind of pseudo-Prog where only the instrumental bits get to be even remotely challenging. I blame Spock's Beard - the most overrated Prog act of the last fifteen years.
