2 stars After many repeated listenings, I can only say that this appears to be a "slightly tongue in cheek" nod to the pro-masters of old. Some beautiful solo work with strong clear vocals. Interesting arrangements. The only drawbacks are the canned percussion and weak lyrics. This is one to watch for in the future, once Mr. Saunders fleshes out a whole band. Fans of Glass Hammer may enjoy this style of Symphonic Prog.

2 stars This album boasts a number of interesting symphonic experiments that may bode well for future efforts. All 3 long tracks have intriguing sections, with the middle one being the most likable, thanks to a mellotron-laden early Barclay James Harvest feel. As regards the quavering 'tron, comparisons to Hostsonaten have some validity there as well. We find sections that sound almost minimalistic, others schizophrenic, and still others somewhat AOR. Sometimes a true solo effort such as this would benefit from other band members off whom to bounce musical ideas both literally and figuratively. But all in all, a decent album that warrants 2.5 stars, rounded down because there is nothing I really feel the need to come back to very often.
