3 stars I knew that wasn't supposed to be an album of Prog Rock, they told about that before the release. But this is too much CONSPIRACY to me.

I was expecting a bit more from STEVE HACKETT but to my ears this is more of a CHRIS SQUIRE continuation of the already mentioned band that he had with BILLY SHEERWOOD. Same kind of music/sounds/line up/ideas.

And once again in a recent release, the drums. What they want to achiev with a mid 90's drum sound doing the music they are doing? I'll never understand.

The good moments lay when they decided to do what they do best, Progressive Rock. Like in 'A Life Within A Day'.

'Tall Ships' shows Squire's great bass lines back on track. but there are too few moments like that.

But all in all, not really memorable. And specially, not memorable at all for 2 GREAT names on Progressve Rock.
