3 stars A little too heavy for me, yet I can see the attraction: like a more refined, more technically proficient and creative though heavier JOURNEY or LOVERBOY, BLACK SABBATH, 38 SPECIAL even a little bit of DEF LEPPARD. The keyboards and frequent tempo changes make this music stand out. The moments when there is an absence of guitar chords--where the voice and keyboards get to really stand out (e.g. "Why I Bleed," "In the Blink of an Eye," "Without a Sound"--are the moments that really show this band's special talents. So, while heavy and metal prog are not really my cup of tea, I begrudge no one their enjoyment of this music. It's very well constructed, very well performed, interesting, and often melodic. 3.5 stars. To me, it just doesn't sound new or different enough to warrant four stars.
