3 stars This is an extremely varied album, and while New Sun will be viewed as many as being 'progressive', they are much more about providing strong songs than conforming to any particular genre. The biggest thing to come out the album is a feeling of space, some of which is due to the sometimes lengthy gaps between tracks, but also to the laid back feel to many of the songs.

It is music that is there to be listened to and enjoyed, but the guys feel no need to thrust it down your throat. While much more will be gained from sitting and listening to it quietly, this album also does very well from being played as background music.

The firs few times I played this I did so while doing something else, but found that songs that "Reflections", with strong vocal and lyrics but minimal backing always had a way of grabbing attention. Then the next song is much more rock based so that the listener is never quite sure what to expect next. No lyrics in the booklet but they are obtainable from the web site which is An interesting album.
