This is a fantastic debut album. Balloon Astronomy has created a bright future for itself with this album. The musicianship on the album is very good, and fits along well with the Neo-Prog subgenre. The lyrics complement the music very well, however they are lacking in certain songs in the album.

Pros The band has done a great job musically. The instrumentals are intriguing, and light-hearted. They combine this well with their lyrics, most of which have a light-hearted tone to it as well (aside from Sourness Of Days). The singer I feel compliments the music very well, and is exactly what the band needs out of the singer. The band has great potential, and that is clearly evident when you listen to the album.

Cons Some of the songs on the album lack depth in their lyrics. Some of the songs (i.e Sourness Of Days and Eagle) show great promise in what this band can achieve lyrically. However there are a few that stick out as being lyrically in-superior.
