4 stars Very... umm... gentle giant sounding. They definitely have quite the unique sound. Oddly timed piano lines, the distinct vocals, nice unison sections between the instruments, odd instrument sounds. Overall very good album. Highlights for me are playing the game, Cogs in Cogs with its very nice synth throughout and overlapping vocal patterns (which also appear in No Gods a Man), and The Face with its beautiful unisons and solos. Very frenetic rhythms going on throughout this album. I am not a big fan of the vocals in So Sincere.

If you like Gentle Giant or very complex prog you will like this album. This isn't for everyone though so only 4 stars here.
