4 stars What a nice surprise! While some reviewers are displeased at the sameness of this collection of songs, I am pleased by this consistency. Aside from, IMO, one throw-away song ("How I Wanna Be"), the engaging quality of these songs is of a very high and consistent level. Again, IMHO, there are three pieces that I would nominate for that pantheon of greatness known as 'classics' in "Safe Like You," "Colours," and "Feeling Less." Plus, for DAVID GILMOUR lovers, you have an amazing 'Gilmour' solo in "Steal My Soul." Agreed: There are no "new" innovations or complicated structures or time signatures here; instead, what you have is a collection of very pleasant, very listenable, and memorable neo-prog songs.

An excellent and enjoyable addition to any prog lover's music collection. Four stars.

P.S. Does anybody else out there think that the keyboard work on this album is masterful in the way it fills space, fills the background with such gorgeous yet subtle chords and washes?
