Prog Reviewer
4 stars One of PoS's most acclaimed albums, we find a variety of sounds here. Many will be turned off by the first song, which is pretty dull and uninspiring. Don't let that get you down, the album does get better.

The album is very good, but its not very great. It is a very moving album, one that touches on many important points, but some of the songs just don't make the grade for this to be a 5 star album. Theres only 2 or 3 really great and outstanding songs, and while the rest of the songs are very solid, they never really give you any great vibes or feelings that great songs and albums do.

On the bright side, Daniel Gildenlow is probably one of the most amazing vocalists you are likely to hear in any band these days.

PoS is a great band, but don't let the fanboys make you think this is the second coming of Dark Side of the Moon, its not, its just a solid prog album.
