Review by progrules
3 stars I just read in the band description that Clive Nolan is actually taking part in this fairly unknown band to me. A surprise and almost a guarantee for quality at least to some extent. And the quality of this release lies in production (there he is again: Karl Groom) and execution. Personally I'm less enthusiastic about the compositions. This is very accessible neo prog, so accessible that it becomes borderline prog. The vocals (well done by Paul Wilson) are very present and are partly responsible for the almost poppish sound and style. The instrumental aspect is too minimal for me as is the grade of progresiveness.

Another feature of this album is the lack of one or true highlights where the songs are concerned. This is a pretty equable album which also has the big advantage that no songs will have to be skipped when you play the album. And if you check it out in the store or wherever you can tell by listening to one song whether or not you are willing to buy it.

Everything considered the rating isn't very hard in this case. I believe you can give this two stars if you are harsh and critical about grade of progressiveness. But I usually judge the quality of melodic music and that's not bad on this album. Despite the fine execution and production though this album is not really good enough for four stars so three is the only option here for me.
