4 stars A funny album from the late 90's... perhaps it is a failure because is the next step leaving the big "label". Well, more simplre, hard edged and very harmonic, qualities to be a pop hitter actually, but something got wrong, maybe the xposure, what do you know!!!. Is quite a good record, so many may complain, but excemting the "happy " HOPE FOR THE FUTURE, this album is a good prog album with mellow touches along the way. The hit single MAN OF A 1000 FACES, and the underrated ESTONIA shows the great thightness of the band as composers and media producers, but the best part fo it is the great MEMORY OF WATER, and the final song THIS STRANGE ENGINE, a 15 minute plus song that give us a wide arrange of emotions from tip to toe. After AFRAID OF SUNLIGHT the new album MARBLES is the best option, but this is a very good record after all.
