3 stars This is a new USA four piece band that released their eponymous debut CD in 2007, the music sounds like a happy marriage between Mr. Yes (Going For The One era) and Mrs. Genesis (around Wind & Wuthering). We can enjoy six tastefully arranged, melodic and accessible compositions featuring beautiful and varied Steve Howe-like guitar work (from twanging and use of volume pedal to steel guitar and fiery runs), lush vintage keyboards (from flashy Minimoog flights to soaring Mellotron waves) and Jon Anderson-like vocals. In general the climates are dreamy or compelling, at some moments you can hear fluent breaks or bombastic eruptions. I had preferred a bit more of those moments because in some parts of the longer tracks my attention tends to slip away, the marriage between Mr. Yes and Mrs. Genesis could have had a bit more positive tension! But the running time of this album is around one hour and during the 60 minutes I have heard lots of very pleasant 'vintage keyboard driven symphonic rock' with the atmospheres of 'classic' Yes and Genesis, I think the romantic progheads and symphomaniacs will be very pleased with this CD. My rating 3,5 stars.
