3 stars I was recomended this album by a friend who had seen reviews saying it was similar to Sean Filkins album, War And Peace & Other Short Stories. It is similar, Conceptual long tracks, the use of effects, guest musicians, and great playing by Armstrong and all the guests, and great vocals, but that is where the similarity ends. There is no doubting that the musicians can play but instead of the songs making me want to play the CD again straight after hearing it, I felt it was just ok. Like the tracks were just built into long tracks because that's what is expected that progressive rock is all about. The sound effects, some of them, I felt where just added for the sake of adding effects to. Like I said above there is some great playing on here, but some of the solos seem to jump out at you, above what I felt was comfortable for the rest of the mix, again adding to that feeling that the tracks were written almost as a mathematical exercise rather than as songs. Don't get me wrong there is enough on here to enjoy but after repeated listens it just doesn't excite and make me want more.
