2 stars It is important to any fan of Prog Rock to be fearless, to look for prog moments in non prog enviroment. But the other way around too. If you see that something is wrong with a recording you have to make yourself hear saying: "this is not prog, this is New Age music" and that is exactly what I am saying of this record. It is not by far the best recording from this truly amazing artist. It has even a section of "Opera chillout" in the second track. It is a record written to be heard as background music while you have a pleasant dinner with your girlfriend, with a cup of chilled Zinfandel in hand. So, if you are looking for genuine prog look somewhere else but not here.
