3 stars This is prog-lite. Space rock...mmmm there might be some resemblance in a few places that can't really be considered ambient, but in actuality it is more like prog related music with very few prog elements. Not that it's a bad album, it's mostly quite enjoyable, but there isn't much on here that is very challenging. I don't mind Kevin Moore's voice, in fact I find it very recognizable and must say that I enjoy it more in his work with O.S.I. The fact that this album is drenched with piano and keyboards is also a great thing and probably the reason I enjoy it more than anything.

Most songs are upbeat with straightforward rhythm and meters. There is a little experimentation on "Mouse" and "Camera 4", but the music doesn't develop much or lead to anything very interesting. But there is a lot of enjoyment to be had in the music if it is taken as a prog-lite album. As much as I would like to find some challenge to the music, it doesn't really happen.. So, in short, I find the album enjoyable but not progressive enough to be interesting. Good, but not essential.
