4 stars No 5 star review from collabs/PR's yet, what a strange thing. It can be easily taken as Symphonic, as it's very pleasant to listen, except Ballet of a Cripple it is hundred percent clear of any dissonant sounds and to be honest, I don't mind them in this song too, as I'm used to listen far tougher sounds.

This album is about something different, it's like Klaatu, it's like Mandalaband's second, it's also like Steely Dan a little bit (for example Reason For It All depicts this jazzy atmosphere a little bit, mostly in bass & vocals line).

I understand that some may hear Genesis here, but personally, even I don't believe in this concept at all, I don't hear them here, as I've heard many albums from various bands that sounds "far more" than this one. But that's my point of view and is only as important as others, so you can make your own point of view. Whew.

This album is actually not so simple, but it has simple approach, e.g - it will attract most of people as it's very accessible. And the more you listen it, the more of it you will discover and that's of course important thing.

4(+), refreshing, but this damn album is not enough for me to give 5. And I wanted.
