5 stars A truly remarkable debut album - I honestly can't recall a debut album from a prog band within the past 15 years that is as solid as this release from start to finish. Highlight tracks are 'Catalyst', 'You Wish', and 'Amputee' but honestly there isn't a weak segment on this album. Another fascinating aspect of this album is the band's sound is fully evolved right here on their debut. They managed to achieve the elusive feat of not really sounding like any other band and continued to do so throughout their career. It was a sad day when Oceansize broke up but at least they have left us with a few albums to continue to enjoy, this one perhaps being the very best of them all. Highly recommended.
