3 stars Apparently, before they changed their name to Airbag and started playing original material these Norwegians were a Pink Floyd tribute band. I'm not surprised to learn this, because this charming prog rock excursion reminds me sonically of a combination of neo-prog of the Marillion and IQ mould but with a greatly dampened Genesis influence and a much expanded Pink Floyd influence, particularly when it comes to the guitar performance of Bjørn Riis and in the group's use of synthesisers. It took a while for the album to grow on me, but whilst I at first wasn't too keen on the opening title track by the time I got to the glorious Homesick I-III at the end I was reasonably entertained, though the vocals don't do much for me. Those who cannot stand the texture of Wish You Were Here-era Pink Floyd will probably want to avoid this one.
