3 stars The problem with this band is that you are always looking for influences. It is a good record, with good songs, a passable storyline, but to tell you the truth It reminds me a lot to TLLDOB by Genesis on the structure of the story, on the setting in New York son no originality arises from here. The songs are filled with references. "Welcome to NYC" has a Gentle Giant intro and an Emerson piano in It. "Love Beyond" has Joe Walsh on guitar (sounds like him). "All is Vanity" and "Stranger in a Strange Land" sport more Tony Banks keybords that a Genesis Record, so I was not comfortable tracing the the influences and not enjoying the record. "The Devilīs got my Throat" is an excellent song by the way. (Reminds me of Deep Purple).
