3 stars 3.5 stars really

Their second album released in 2009 with a strange and intresting name in same time Spooning out the sea is another worthy album for me. Definetly in same league with their first, no big imprevements here, the sound and all are the same, that means a good thing for me and an enjoyble trip for sure from start to finish. Well, musicaly speaking is more then ok, no really groundbreaking moments that's for sure but this effectiv combination between Dream Thater in their most friendly sound and attitude with pompous art rock a la Asia and Journey and with more complex passages remind me of Yes, Kansas or Spock's Beard works here very well. Heavy riffs combined with melodic lines makes from this second Orphan Project album a winner. Very good are the vocal arrangements, Shane Lankford isa very good vocalist and because of that he is also appear on lates two albums of Visual Cliff. As I said they are similar with ACT or Profusion. Good towards great in places. 3 rounded to 3.5 because I think this is their best album. Forte pieces One Dark Moment(Providence) and the title track with a great ending instrumental passages, the rest are ok too.
