4 stars Having liked the last two offerings from CBP I was looking forward to dipping in to this one. I wasn't expected to be swamped and submerged by a swathe of Gilmour like guitars and spacey drawn out epics that have been offered up. This is great stuff! The rhythm section pounds away and keeps songs like Get Down and Live with it and Laying Traps chugging along nicely but CBP also know when to leave spaces and stretch out and relax, not always a trait in modern prog ( for this is what this album truly is). The variety of instruments and effects used create an intriguing and always interesting soundscape. This is just the sort of album that I like to put on and get lost in. Top stuff!
