5 stars Walking on H2O is an absolutely brilliant album! Is it "Progressive Metal"? Nope....Thank God! But it is my early pick for Album of The Year! I must confess, I have "Work Of Art" and "Waiting For The Tide", and both of those albums are disjointed, and the songs are weak! Much of those two albums is dominated by cliche' guitar work, and time signature changes just for the sake of change. The result is just a MESS. BUT.... "Walking On H2O" is rock solid from start to finish. The original guitar player has left the band which has allowed Daniel Flores to take over the writing and producing duties..and the results are flawless. The keyboard work shines...and The guitar work on this album is much more cohesive and fits the songs SO much better than the previous albums. The songwriting here is so far superior to the earlier records too. "Sahara In An Hourglass" and "Umbrellas Under The Sun" are absolutely brilliant! John Van Boyer has confused melody, harmonies, and GREAT production with being a boy band. This is anything BUT a boy band. The material is well written, the musicianship is spot on, and the production is absolutely top notch. I garantee, if their next album is in a simlar style, "Mind's Eye" will be a huge force in melodic/progressive rock!
