5 stars Citizen Cain are one of the most underated neo-prog groups. They are often dismissed as "another early Genesis aping band". This is totally unfair. Apart from Cyrus's singing voice which is highly similar to early Peter Gabriel singing style (and how is that a bad thing?) their music, lyrics and general atmosphere are completely different than early Genesis. Citizen Cain's music is much darker, thick layered, dense and complicated. It is hard to sink your teeth in their music as it takes a while to get used to it but once this happens the reward is so much more fulfilling than with the current neo- prog bands. This is not for the faint-hearted but for music lovers who take their time in exploring the music with patience, and each time you listen to a song you hear new things. However the music is dark and unconforting so if you like your prog light-hearted and easy this is not for you
