4 stars While Third Degree is the third album by Flying Colors, it feels more like a combination of the first two. The debut album was very accessible, and Second Nature is the most proggy of the trio. Third Degree does have some stellar proggy moments, and the most notable are on the tracks Crawl and Last Train Home... which are two of the best songs ever made by Flying Colors. The rest of Third Degree is memorable with lots of well done songs. Overall, this is another excellent release and flows perfectly with the previous efforts. Casey McPherson sounds great on this release and has some Radiohead moments with his voice hitting some high notes. Mike's drumming is always amazing, and brings this release up to supergroup status. Neal's influence is very evident on Last Train Home. I have no complaints with Third Degree, and it is a more accessible project that injects the prog to appeal to different people. Well done!
