4 stars Wonderful start to one of the few shining bands left today. This band plays well within itself, nothing too over the top, keeping the integrity of the song above all else.

The Same River is a favorite of mine, mostly because of its personal appeal to things in my life. Anywho, most of the songs hear are on the good to great status, but there's nothing "revolutionary" about any of it. It's just well done music. It's not groundbreaking, just some outstanding musicianship. Should break the stereotypes of "progressive metal", which is a poorly used term. This band is about substance and quality songwriting more than fitting into a niche. Much of the music has a very psychedelic vibe due to the role of the keys.

Highly recommended as a comfortable start for anyone looking to get into the "progressive metal" genre who is more used to traditional prog rock.
