2 stars Great band,great music,great vocals..a lot of But..sorry this is not prog rock...farly prog related. ¿Folk Rock,Blues Rock,Pop Rock maybe...?

The energy and quality of this band is remarkable,with vocals simmilar to Janis Joplins. I find a little simmilarity with Heart best classic albums You must get this album if you really like classic rock specially in the folk or blues vein.. But if you are looking for a great neo prog band you will be disapointed.Short songs,little keyboards,less progression in each song. I think it is only a matter in the kind of rock music insertion..and that is why i sometimes don,t understand Progarchives prog definitions ¿Why for example the very good neo prog or symp.prog album Cannata Mysterium Magnum is not incorporated? ¿Why Saga is considered prog related and not symph-the classic- or neo prog -the modern-?

Well ..then.. this album in the general prog rock area is for 5 stars but in the neo prog area 2.5.
