3 stars Proto-kaw's latest efforth (see what I did there) is a bit two sided album: on the other hand there are some great and classic tracks like the groovy opener "Daylight", "Things We Are Breaking" that wonderfully combines the best sides of 80's prog to some folky bits and the almost orchestral "On the Air (Again)". Besides those pieces (and a few others) there is a lot of average stuff that seems to say nothing special even after repeated listens. I don't know where Livgren dropped the incredible inspiration he had when writing albums like Before Became After and Prime Mover, but it sure didn't find its way here. That said, this is by no means a bad album. If you liked the two previous kaw albums you will probably like this as well, at least in pieces if not the whole thing.
