Review by VanVanVan
3 stars I heard about this band a long time ago on a prog-rock radio program, and hearing that their album was free for download, decided to check it out. That was perhaps 3 or 4 years ago, and ever since then it's been one of those albums that I listen to every so often, enjoy and then promptly forget about.

It's certainly not a bad album, falling into what I would call "Interesting Pop," certainly showing a lot of influence from progressive rock but not really solidly sitting within the genre. There are no super-long epics, and most of the songs are under five minutes.

Again, that doesn't make it a bad album. There are a lot of great melodies; the choruses of the title track and "Nerve Pill" are especially enjoyable. The reader should be aware, though, that this album has far more in common with alternative and indie rock than it does with the prog mainstream.

Overall then I have a lot of conflicting feelings about this album. Is it worth a listen? Absolutely, but you probably won't be missing anything essential if you don't. Then again, it's free, so what do you have to lose?

3.5/5, rounded down.
