4 stars well in my opinion there are probably four well-known artist to bring a little progressive rock in the 90s. Spock's Beard with the combine elements of hard rock/pop with prog rock, Flower Kings just going full force with YES/GENESIS inspired prog all the way. Porcupine Tree with more psycedelic/hard rock/ambient...who the heck knows with prog rock. then you have Magellan who i think combine some metal and over powering it with prog rock. I have heard about Magellen through the side project Explorer's Club which is bascially a great prog rock/art-rock side project that Magellen got to work with some members of Dream Theater. so my first thought was hmmmmmm if these guys can work with someone as great as DT then maybe their really good. I was kinda skeptical about buying this cd cause i've heard that IMPOSSIBLE FIGURES was one of their best albums so i gave it a risk listened and ya know what its not bad at all. IMPOSSIBLE FIGURES is a very heavy but progressive rocky album that has a lot to offer with awesome riffs, fat bass lines, great keyboard work, and plus the drummer is SICK especially on the special edition cd as he play this awesome solo to end the albums ITS GREAT. Anyway both the Gardner brothers in my opinion do a terrific job of adding what people called dinosaur rock with great metal plus the vocals do have a similar sound to that of EMERSON, LAKE, AND PALMER but that's my opinion anyway great cd to start with a def. 4 stars
