5 stars This is a far, FAR departure from their 80's output and while it retains a lot of melody and hook characteristic of the neo-prog stable, it's way more symphonic now. I'm definitely not saying their early output is bad, in fact I think Gullibles Travels is a fantastic album and well represents the era, this is just far close to what say, Phideaux is doing now rather than a rehash of the classic 80's bombastic sound. These 4 lengthy compositions are just filled with wonderful auditory snacks that beg for repeated munching and for me this is the key to ANY prog rock, otherwise what's the point, just listen to the radio for the forgettable stuff. This is food for the pure prog lovers as it's all here, tasty moog, varied tempos, smooth guitar leads and just overall incredibly competent musicianship from a group of people who have clearly matured musically over the years like a fine wine.
