3 stars What else can I say about this emblematic album of symphonic rock... What happens to me with this piece is quite strange, because in some segments I find a very modern (futuristic) and original sound, but in others it sounds exactly the same as other bands. Already the fact that the band has the same name as a Genesis song doesn't appeal to me at all... Originality and authenticity in music are really important (especially in progressive rock). In some minutes it sounds like Yes, in others like Gentle Giant... Anyway, there are several redeemable songs (like the ones at the beginning of the album or the final song) that you can really like. If they had managed to detach themselves from the sound of the 70's-75's, it would get 4 stars (maybe 5!). Clearly an album that every fan of the sub-genre should listen to.
