4 stars Definetly a transition album. PT or, better, STEVEN, was certainly making an excursion in pop, and I have to say that they did a good work, this cd is not bad at all. But I remember how frightened I was when I listened LIGHTBULB SUN for the first time. I thought: oh no he's falling in pop...

But LIGHTBULB SUN conserves prog influences in a very delicate way: maybe the song aren't long and difficult to play, but there is the typical prog vein in composing and I like the atmosphere. best tracks: shesmovedon, the rest will flow, where we would be, russia on ice. most of them are the most poppish, and they explain well the album in my opinion.

So this is 2 stars really. It's not what I want to listen from PT. But baby it's all gone now it's ok. Oh, don't take this album if it would be the first, you would misunderstand the band.

sorry. once I rated this album too bad. it's actually good. 4 stars. sorry again
