4 stars Tony Levin pushed this solo album further.. this time he even sings! The vocals are good, but they still sound a bit strange to me. The music is pretty much in the vein of the past two albums.

"Break It Down": a classic Crimson-type song - 8/10

"Places To Go": a jazzy song with Tony's bass in front - 7/10

"Throw The God A Bone": a classic rocker - very funny song with lyrics about Tony's dog ( which even barks on the song) - 8/10

"Utopia": a shorter version of the Waters Of Eden instrumental with lyrics - this becomes a beautiful ballad with a new guitar line - 10/10

"Beyond My Reach": another ballad, but this time more jazz oriented than rock - gentle vocals, nice piano and keyboards - 10/10

"Shadowland": one of the two instrumentals on this album, written by the whole band, it shows how well all these guys can play together - very much in the vein of Waters Of Eden - 10/10

"Crisis Of Faith": one only track I tend to skip completely while listening to the album - sounds like a bad joke taken from old cartoons - completely silly - 1/10

"What Would Jimi Do?": self-explanatory, a guitar-driven rocker - 8/10

"Sabre Dance": the reprise of a classical instrumental - very well executed - 10/10

"Fragile As A Song": nice ballad to close the album - mainly piano + voice - 10/10

Rating: 82/100 (4 stars)
