5 stars The first track (Rebreather) will remind you of 'Dancing with the moonlit knight', such is its quality.

Then there's track 7 (A boy in darkness), which, ordinarily, would be a fine, fine album finale. In fact though, it's followed by the exceptional 'Hedgerow' which has a chorus that'll grab you well after you've finished listening to it.

These three tracks alone make this one of the most enjoyable modern prog albums out there.

After a short while, the 'retro' aspect actually diminishes, and so the album stands alone, with its own style of Prog.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and the songwriting, and I can certainly see why everyone likes it.
