2 stars Not a big fan of the cover or title for this, but who cares.

FK's single disc albums tend to be more coherent and focused but also tend to be less adventurous. No surprise there, and not too many surprises here (for a FK fan that is). Unfold the future was for mine a bit too directionless and had too much filler.

This album doesn't really have a bad note on it, but it does lack that certain something that keeps me coming back for repeated listens. Where this album disappoints is in the lack of 'cut loose' technical jam sections, urgency/aggression and experimentation. The emphasis is more on songs, which may mean it is a good point to discover the band, but not if you're a Dream Theater fan. The gripe I ever have with FK is their tendency to sound a bit 'adult contemporary' or 'christian rock' at times, but hey, if they throw in a bit more grunt and experimentation I can live with it.
