3 stars The follow-up album "Through Your Eyes" demonstrated their new music direction where the debut was categorized under neoprog, now they entered a fresher music in AOR style with some flavor of neo-prog especially through the use of keyboard solo and guitar solo. Gone are the days with Jon-like vocal line as they have new singer here. From the composition and production stand point, this second album is much matured musically than the debut. I can say all tracks are straight forward composition with simple structure so that makes it easy to digest even for those who don't know what prog music is all about. Think of recent albums by Asia, this one is about similar and in fact better than Asia in term of AOR category. What differentiates is the technical skills of the musicians where in Asia you got all top notch players while here you have never heard the names yet.

When you start to play this album with "Hold Back the Night" as album opener I can assure you suddenly enjoy how the music flows even though melody-wise it's not something catchy that got your attention the first time. However by couple of spin in a relaxed mode you will find the musical subtleties are good. "All Out of Love" is actually in different vein but combined with the opener they form a very good enjoying pleasure. You will also find something catchy supported with straight-forward beats produced by the fifth track "Heart of Mine".

Overall, this second album is a very good AOR that I am sure you would enjoy the music the first time you listen to it. All tracks are quite easy to digest and you do not need any prog ear to enjoy this one. Keep on proggin' ...!
