2 stars Like Wendy's third album is a sometimes frustrating mixture of the masterful neo-prog sound which won them the attention of the prog community and the less successful mainstream- leaning material which caused their later albums to be less well received. Now, I've nothing against mixing mainstream alt-rock influenced stuff on a neo-prog album - I gave five stars to Marillion's Brave, after all - but Like Wendy's material in this vein like The Price for Trust simply leaves me cold.

As for their proggier moments, they suffer somewhat from middling production values, but when they're really on fire they're... well, a quite good Genesis-inspired neo-prog group, but there's plenty of those. On the whole, it'd be a much better album if it had received more polish and were it not for the regular flirtations with a musical style the group simply aren't as good at compared with their neo-prog skills.

Warthur | 2/5 |
