Prog Reviewer
2 stars About a decade ago this album was one of my "blind picks". I had no idea what Echolyn was like, it was one of the better known bands at that time, so I bought this one. In the banddescription the comparison with Gentle Giant is made and rightly so, there is some resemblance especially in the vocal aspect. Alas I don't like it. I think these kind of vocals are ugly, there's no melody or nice tune there, they just produce sound. It's the same with the instrumental music more or less although they prove with "A little nonsense" that they do know what a nice guitarsolo is like, unfortunately it's the only piece somewhat worthwhile for my liking. So two stars only
