2 stars The charms of the self-titled debut album was that is was presented as a complete piece of music where the organic whole was far greater than the sum of its parts. Not so here. The band has also lost its sense of urgency and this second album is far less interesting and far less memorable. In addition, this album is no longer Heavy Prog, since it is neither particularly heavy nor particularly Prog. Rather, it is more towards psychedelic pop with occasional heavy sections.

In its favour I should say that it is better recorded and produced, the instrumentation is a bit more interesting too, with more keyboards added to the mix. But this can hardly redeem this rather lacklustre effort. This is not poor, only not very interesting.

Fans of Heavy Prog should stick with the first album.
