4 stars Great album!!! This is the album I can't stop playing since I purchased it. This is the band I enjoy listening to when I just want to have fun and not in the mood of listening extremely complex music, which I love, but sometimes I just need a rest, charge batteries with Jadis and then enjoy listening VDGG or Gentle Giant. These guys are so great musicians that just hearing them performing is an absolute pleasure. I think Photoplay must be their greatest effort, since MTMTE, but it is hard for me since every single album is an improvement. Their last is the greatest. This is an easy listen, but don't get me wrong. Yes, you won't find super complex melodies here, but you will be surprised on how enjoyable each song can be and how they manage to create easy to listen songs, but keeping elaborated Prog arrangements. Jadis' characteristics are still here. A master guitar performance from Gary, and also his vocals have improved a lot!! Jowitt and Orford monsters!! and Christey, a classical drummer great job also!! There are some great rockers with Jadis' distinctive style 1. Theme's Light,3. Asleep In My Hands (5:39),5. I Hear Your Voice (6:15),6. Make Me Move (5:32).,,9. Please Open Your Eyes (5:35),10. All You've Ever Known (6:42) the strongest songs, rocking with intermediate rythm changes. Each song surprises you with permanent switches, but in this album Chandler's guitar plays a superior role compared with all previous albums. This band must be the only Prog band my wife tolerates!!! Please, do yourself a favour and grab this album. You won't regret it
