4 stars As I was sifting past lame metal album after lame metal album at our locl music store in hopes of maybe finding some Dream Theater or Queensryche for my younger brother, I came across this album. The cover looked formilular, but I couldn't place it. Then it hit me, I had heard the song "Heavenly Man" on an online prog radio station. I couldn't figure out what this album was doing on the metal section. But then again, Spock's Beard is placed in their shoddy "metal" section. Heck, it is mostly mindless nu-metal. And a few Iron Maiden (oh yeah!!!) albums. So I bought this album. Only having heard the one song. But if the abum was any reflection of the song, it was going to be good. Maybe no "Scenes From a Memory" or "Close to the Edge", but still good. So after listening to it several time, I am impressed. Kinda sad that this is the only real album from these guys. But maybe we will hear more. The one thing this album has a lot of is melody! And I am a fan of good melody. So over all, I am giving this 4/5. It wasn't anything that blew me away, but I would highly recomend it to people.
