4 stars My first introduction to IZZ and I should have written this review sooner. Great album always a warm and friendly feel to slip on even after three years of listening to it. Some really excellent material here and well played. Obviously these guys are students of prog as well as players and they pay tribute to their heroes with vintage sound samples in the keys of Tom Galgano, the tasteful and melodic bass lines of John Galgano and the great guitar sound of Paul Brems and stylistic drumming of Brian Coralian and Greg DiMiceli but they are so much more.

I love the composition of the songs in general as really it represents skillful crafting something lacking in much of modern prog. There is nothing wrong with using the Beatles as an influence because they were skillful songwriters. It is a great starting point and I love that influence here. That is in evidence is in songs like the Title Track, I Wanna Win and Light Form Your Eyes. Add to that the epics of Star Evil Gnoma Su and Coming Like Light as well as a great little instrumental The Mists of Dalriada and you have a complete CD.

Some bands or albums have a rainy day feel to them. Aqualung is one always felt that way to me and so does this one. I love that feeling so I will revisit this one many times.. 4.5 stars.
