4 stars It has taken me a loooooooooong time to digest this album.

Us is blending neo-prog with symphonic prog and AOR. The result is a very melodic stew without much of the intricate tempo changes other bands use. Teenybopper prog, then. Nope ! Us is using a lot of moods in their music. The superb somber Happy Suburbia '78 is a good example. It is only six minutes long, but it is still a great song. Other songs are more heavy, but still filled with emotions and great melody lines. Us still sounds like Al Stewart, Pallas and Marillion. But they have also developed their own identity here. Their musicianship is excellent too and so is the vocals.

Quality wise, this is a great album and one of the best neo-prog albums I have ever heard. A bit tad too AOR for my liking, but still a great album. The killer song is not here, but that is the only fault with this album. I am really warming towards Us and recommend this band. Give them the attention they deserve.

4 stars
