3 stars It's funny I suddenly realized Jack Foster isn't just some kind of one man show but more a real band with some pretty famous guys in it. Like Trent Gardner (Magellan) who I recognized in third track Koan with his distinctive voice. And looking at the actual line up I also became aware of Mr. Robert Berry who I know of his solo release Pilgrimage to a Point. So two famous proggers whilst Jack Foster himself is a name I never heard before.

I know him now and he is a good vocalist and a fairly nice songwriter as well. This second album is the only one I know so far and the style is more somewhere in between crossover and heavy prog to me although the songs are pretty versatile with some nice ballads as well.

So not a bad effort at all by Jack Foster but I wonder what the real proggers on our site would make of this album. I would call this release borderline prog and qualify it more as "good music". The musicianship is very much ok and so arfe the songs but I wouldn't want to call it an excellent addition for any prog rock collection. But who knows other reviewers would surprise me if they gave this album a chance. I will leave it at three this time (3,25).
