3 stars Well, this was disappointing.

After recording two fine albums where they were finally developing their own prog sound, and very successfully so, Fred Schendel and Steve Babb decided to take aim at more radio friendly music.

I wouldn't say the album sucks, like, say the music Genesis and Renaissance made in the eighties, but compared to most of their other albums, this one feels like there is something missing.

Susie Bogdanowicz sounds mostly uninterested through most of the songs on the album. And while a few songs tend to pick up the energy, that energy seems short lived.

It isn't until the ninth track, Schrodinger's Lament a strange diatribe on cause and effect, that the album finally grabbed me. And I will admit, Hyperbole works itself up into a delicious frenzy.

So for all of this, I'd rate it about 2.75 stars.

Evolver | 3/5 |
