4 stars "More than a Dream" is the Aussie proggers Unitopia's first musical statement, supporting values such as environmentalism, positive spirituality and a "slow" lifestyle. Not much wrong with those, I suppose, and neither is there with the music. Reflective mellow parts, poppish passages and various percussions and wind instruments fuse with a more 70'ish prog approach, creating altogether a fine piece. While the songs stay a bit on the "safe side" there is still much to enjoy here, like the reflective "Slow Down", the rocking opener "Common Goal" or "Take Good Care" which would well fit as an anthem of Greenpeace or other environment friendly organization. The only real downside is "Lives Go Round" which has a very annoying chorus, putting the overall rating maybe down to 3.5 stars from a full four. I'll still rate it as four here, because it is better to see the glass half full than half empty, right? Especially after listening to this kind of an album. There is never enough positivity in the world, I guess.
