3 stars Can't say that I blame the baby on the cover. Echolyn are a remarkable US band, and the songs on this album were the last one written and recorded, (with all the bugs not ironed out) before they broke up. It's pretty much a mixed bag with most songs heavy on the lyrics, (which are superb as usual) but light on the solos. Since the songs are not produced, there's a sameyness to them, (to these ears at least). The exception is the title track which is a remake of the old chestnut by GENESIS. I like this version more for the simple fact that it's NOT as over-produced as the original. The main reason to purchase this album is for the last two tracks, live renditions of "A Little Nonsense" and "As The World". Both were taped at their last live performance before the infamous breakup. If you're a fan of the band, this would be a decent purchase if only for the two live tracks. For those looking into purchasing an album by the band, I would go with something else. It's not as bad as two stars but nowhere near four. So three sounds right.
