3 stars While emanating from the heavier, more technically-oriented side of progressive rock, I am truly impressed with the production, the never boring yet never over-the-top or in-your-face song development. The instrumentalists are all EXCELLENT, the vocals are strong, the song topic choices are interesting and engaging. My only criticism is that there isn't really anything so very new, innovative, or mind-blowing exciting here. What is here is a pretty near-flawless album of top notch prog rock. I am reminded of a heavier version of BIG BIG TRAIN. Thank you for your admirable restraint and highly enjoyable start-to-finish listening experience. Faves: the cute/clever "Marty and the Magic Moose" (8/10), the Tears for Fears-tinged "The Physician and the Traitor" (8/10), the excellent bass playing on the album's climax, "Rex Mortuus Est" (8/10), the electronica and crisp, clear drumming of "Memo" (8/10). A nice addition to any prog lover's music collection. Solid four stars.
