3 stars I actually prefer "Trying To Kiss The Sun" but there is no accounting for taste is there. This one to these ears has a lot of pop elements, as well as Eastern influences.

The record starts off with "Sleep" that has a good melody throughout and I like the lighter passage after 4 minutes. Some good guitar as well. "Start The Fire" is an uptempo tune with another good melody, and I like the full sound in the beginning. "Everything Was Not Enough" are my thoughts exactly about this song, do not like it. "Roses" has Ray Wilson on vocals (which is an improvement) on this smooth, catchy tune.

"Lights" features a strummed acoustic guitar melody and some sampling before the piano comes in, and it ends with some nice soaring guitar. "Sea-Nature" is a pretty cool, psychedelic sounding tune (even the lyrics) with spacey synths and some smoking guitar makes this a highlight. "Day On My Pillow" is a so- so, relaxing, poppy tune. "World Through My Eyes" features some Eastern influences and a good beat once it gets going. The drums are more upfront on "Wasted Land", while "Bound To Reach The End" has some beautiful guitar moments in it.

This is a good, accessible release that should please a lot of people who are into melodic, atmospheric music.
