1 stars retro-prog, that is what it is.

retro-prog is the all the music that have everything to be prog, except two, and for me, the most important things: originality and progression.

A Place in the Queue is a great example: you can find rhythm changes, and all that stuff that I (and i hope you) like, but the sounds is the same sound that genesis and yes did in the '70s, which means that this album is a prog jewel of the '70s made in the XXI century, 30 years later, that's a long time, thus, this album is more a waste of time for the one's who are tired of listing one and again the same rhythm changes, the sames sounds, the sames ideas from bands wich did it 30 years ago!

what else could i say about this album?, well, pick all YES album, remove inspiration form them, and that is this album

if you are a fan of the '70s music, and don't get bored by listing it one and again, and don't dislike you the copy-paste, then pick this album up and enjoy it, on the other hand, if you are like me, and need new sounds to find something good, don't look at this album, there are a lot of original bands
