5 stars Genesis clone? Well kinda, they're pretty much their own beast.

Misplaced Childhood is one of the best "album long suites" ever conceived. Unlike some bands, these guys take their influence (mainly Genesis) and create something totally unique out of it. The product is something truly amazing, this great piece of work.

The album itself consists of several shorter songs that flow into each other pretty much seamlessly. Although they are all practically eighties pop music, one can't help but indulge in the beauty that the band creates. With eighties pop music, mind you, one of my least favorite genres of rock music.

When you add Pink Floyd, Gabriel-era Genesis, and Van Der Graaf Generator influences to pop music, this is what you get, an amazing record of emotional brilliance that can be easily played on the radio. What a package!

I love each listen, 5 lovely stars.

PS Will go more in-depth with an edited review at some point.
