2 stars Fans of Starting Line and Yellowcard may like this, but fans of true prog-artists like Mars Volta, Oceansize, Yes, Marillion, Anglagard, Tool, and etc... will not...

I am a fan of every Progressive subgenre from Zeuhl to Cross-Over to Metal, you name it. However, I do not understand why this album is regarded so high. I didn't want to review this for a couple of reasons, but seeing as this is in the top 10 I felt obliged to ask these so called "progressive" fans why this album is here? There is no new material on this album, no originality, no surprises... I'm not saying this is a bad album. I'm just so disappointed that albums from new comers like Sky Architect and Tea Club (ambitous artists) are overlooked by artists that are just another copy of something else.
