3 stars Lisa is a keyboard player who has been influenced by progressive rock since a young age, and this was her fourth album, released in 2009, although she did call it a project which then led to the forming of her band Project 2KX. When I noticed that John Payne (Asia) was one of those involved I became very interested indeed, but the more I played this album the more disillusioned I became. There is a real lack of focus over the course of the album which leads to it seeming very disjointed indeed, and actually quite hard to follow. There are some really good progressive instrumental numbers where Lisa often finds herself in the supporting role to the very fine guitarwork of Steve Adams, but then these are broken up with some AOR songs and the result is that the sum of the parts is very much less tan it should be.

If Lisa had concentrated on just an AOR album, or just an instrumental progressive rock album, then I am sure that either would have been more preferable than the end result. Well produced with some fine songs and performances, it isn't something to which I will often be returning. More details at
