5 stars I do agree with those who think the album is absolutely GREAT, it contains the perfect mixture of prog, pop and hard rock. It doesn't get bound to any style in particular, just floats between styles, taking what it needs to make the album even better than its predecessor.

The songs show a very wide range of possibilities, from the arabic tone of "A Clown's Tale", or the awesome slightly funky "Fake The Right", to the slow beautiful "play-it-again-Sam" sort of song that sets the excellent closure for the album. However, the most balanced and mature song is, as it's been said before, "Your Other Way", which stands for the perfect front door to get yourself into the band.

Philip Griffiths's vocals are simply perfect, his voice just fits in, evolving with the music in equal terms, working for the song and expressing its magnificence all the way!!! There is also remarkable the guitars, whose sound provides an excellent counterpoint to Griffith's voice, as a second singer joining the band when the frontman lets the music on its own. No Yngwie-I'm-the-guitar-mastah style whatsoever, though.

In every spin you give the CD, you find out new elements that testify for the maturity this band has reached by far. Just check it out, I love it, and it doesn't occur so often.
