3 stars New Sun is somehow an unknown band in prog circles even they release 4 albums to date. They are from USA formed in early '90s. The second album from 1998 named Affects is a trip in heavy prog realm with some great guitar parts and dark atmosphere. Also they incorporated in their sound some space rock passages that gives overall a fairly decent experince to the listner. The riffs and sound remind me in places of King Crimson and even some Rush passages are to be found here, but are all melted with their own twists. This album is ok, good no doubt but some parts are little forced in my opinion, like for instance in pieces like FYB (the Deceptionist) or "Cause & Effect". There are also some highlights like Prometheus and ending track Question. So, fans of Rush at some point might give this band a try, they are ok, but I don't think is a groundbreaking release, still 3 stars to this one, good cover art.
