4 stars As I said many times and will say many times in future, I don't believe in this "everything sounds like Genesis, Yes, Camel" and few others myth. Because it does not sound like these. My threshold is probably hell high in the skies, so my point of view on this interesting, even not as good as their other album band is very positive. I'm finding new melodies, new structures, new patterns and in general, original impression it's making on me. Quite short for an album from 2001, but maybe they lacked ideas. It's somehow clear to see( and hear, both on cover and their sound) that sometimes, their sound lacks something important (Nuclear Apathy, too repetitive, without being thrilling song, it's prominent this way), but as I said, mostly it's not catastrophe.

4(-), decent Neo-Prog, not as good as Tall Tales, but still good. For me, so probably also for you. I consider current rating (3.17) quite unfair for them, as they have more to offer than as rating implies.
