5 stars Your thoughts on this album will really depend on how you approach it. If you are likely to get frustrated by the obvious influences from past bands, then you should steer clear. On the other hand, if you begin by accepting that this album is paying homage to a golden era, you will find it to be the most satisfying listen in years.

Parts of this album (including Dave Kerzner's voice which is classic Gilmour) give you a glimpse of what Pink Floyd would probably sound like now had they carried on, and is the nearest you could ever get to a full new Pink Floyd album. Indeed, if the Floyd had released this last year it would probably be a huge success. I must add however, that this is also a great album in it's own right. A taste of everything I love from the history of Prog, plus so much more. The 2cd edition takes you on a wonderful journey, and although listening to both discs in one sitting may be a little taxing (over 70mins each!), it really is an amazing output. If you love Pink Floyd - (both Dark Side & Wall era's), a bit of ELO, some Tull, all wrapped up in a Sound of Contact package, then this will be your Viagra!

This really is a masterpiece. Not in the sense of a unique piece of classic work, but by being 140 minutes of prog bliss. Please do not be put off by the Floyd influence, but instead embrace it, and let yourself drift away on the best nostalgia trip possible.
