2 stars This Flamborough Head line-up is really pleasant.

This album opens on a great and emotional piece of music. "Corrugated Road" is one of my fave of the band. Vocals are very catchy and enjoyable. They convey a very optimistic feeling.

And if ever melody and passion belong to your genuine senses, a song as "Childscream" could only overwhelm you. Straight-forward neo-prog melody. So nice, so human, so . beautiful, yet so simple. A highlight and another great musical experience. My only problem (as half of the songs of this recording) is that it has already been released in a more polished version.

Not all tracks will be on par, unfortunately. The long "Suicide" starts as an electro-pop worthless experience and really does never kick off. Even if the closing section holds some strong guitar work. But it lasts for almost nine minutes.(the song, not the great guitar break).

The recording quality of "Unspoken Whisper" is not super. What's the fuss of releasing an inferior and almost bootleg version of a good original ? I don't know. But "Flamborough Head" did it. Not me. The original song was much better.

The closing number was also released earlier on. "Bridge to the Promised Land" is featured here in a primary and shorter version. Not bad but at the end of the day this work sounds more as a rip off. Half of good new songs and half to average old remixed ones.

Two stars.
