3 stars This is not progressive rock. This is basically melodic rock, but not really rock, more pop. But not even powerpop. Middle of the road, enjoyable FM-poprock.

The guitarist Lee Abraham is known for his work with Galahad. But this has nothing to do with Galahad. This sounds more like modern melodic rock like Harem Scarem, Overland, Pride of Lions, but also like the oldies: Foreigner, Boston, Europe.

The problem with this is, that progrock-fans will bash it, and melodic rock-fans will regard as too mellow and midtempo. It's enjoyable though. The production is fresh and crisp, the vocalists involved are very good, and the songwriting is okay,

But this is not te kind of album to rock out to. You play it as backgroundmusic, what FM-rock was meant to. Maybe this will find its fans, but I guess not in the prog-community. For what is it, it's okay, not great, but okay.

Kingsnake | 3/5 |
