3 stars My review of this album is for what the album is, not what it could or should have been. Listening to this album in my car, my wife said: "this is a nice album". And I think this sums it up. It's a nice album.

It all starts up very good, the first song got my hopes up for a while. Then it's mostly downhill from there with some exceptions, second song "The game" is really ok along with "It was all we knew". The ending is quite good also, with their most progressive song "Subway walls", the last minute and a half in that song is the best they can muster. All in all we have two good songs, two ok songs and four poor ones.

Although, I feel that the songs are very positive and light, a thing that's rare in progressive rock unfortionately. For that alone, I like the album. I will add this album to the rare list of progressive rock albums that I can play when my wife is present.

On the negative side, besides that half of the songs are mostly poor quality wise, the guys in the band sounds tired. One thing is to write poor songs, another thing is to sound tired when you play them. That is not ok.

No way near as bad as "Open your eyes" or "Talk" but it's the third from the bottom of the album catalogue.

A nice but tired album.
