4 stars I really like this record.

It's funny, quirky, groovy, melodic and a joy to listen to.

The songs are short and on the poprock side of the prog-spectrum (' la Alan Parsons Project, late seventies Camel, late seventies Caravan, Kraan etc.).

There are not many fusion or difficult progrock sections, but that doesn't mean the songs are bad. The sound is very warm and open; the drums, keyboards, bass and guitar are mixed very well. The vocals are strong and the keyboard-sounds are very well chosen; reminds me of Rain Dances-era Peter Bardens.

I really like when progrock-bands explore the poprock-side of progrock. Sometimes very great albums emerge, like this one.

I can recommend this album to anyone who loves Alan Parsons Project, late seventies Camel, late seventies Caravan, Kraa, ELO, 10CC etc.

Kingsnake | 4/5 |
