5 stars I'm listening to "Your Other Way" right now, on my second spin directly after the first!. This is a very inspiring song. I have discovered a new band today, and their name is: Alias Eye. I can hear hints of Yes in the vocal hooks, Rothery/Gilmour guitar solos, there is saxaphone sections that sound fantastic. This has a LOT of Beatles influences to my ear too, with guitars especially. This is art-rock of the highest calibur as others have said. This music is so pleasing to the ears, it defines the word "melodic". Melodic as in relaxing. I could so easily play this music at bedtime and sleep well into the next day, after being so relaxed by this group. There is not a bad song, not a bad section, nothing is out of place. It is as perfect as this type of symphonic prog/art-rock will get. The singer does not scream. The lyrics have meaning, and they do not sound accented (so I can make them out). And they are not in a different language, as I and a lot of others I know do not speak German etc they don't want to learn it just to understand a few prog lyrics when there is so many bands already that sing in English and have great works. Alias Eye are the best German act in prog, imho. RPWL the best Dutch band, and PFM the best Italian band!. Buy this album you really won't regret it.
