4 stars Jadis followed up their breakthrough More Than Meets The Eye with this album, which once again finds band leader Gary Chandler and his loyal drummer Steve Christey backed up by then-IQ members John Jowitt and Martin Orford. This time around, the mood is a little more reflective and subdued than on More Than Meets the Eye, making Across the Water an interesting companion piece to that. I'm tempted to make the analogy that whilst More Than Meets the Eye is neo-prog for a summer's day - bright, exuberant, full of the joy of life - Across the Water is neo-prog for a summer's evening. (Hell, there's even a track called Daylight Fades.) It's good music for when the dark is drawing in outside, you're tired but happy after the day's exertions, and you're collecting your thoughts as you watch a sunset.
