2 stars At the time , I had gotten excited at it like most people but today I wonder why. I suppose this was the novelty of a US band with a different sound as the Magna Carta standard , but this is still with a huge sound obviously influenced by that ever important Leftoverture album from Kansas mixed in with some Gentle Giant and Yes.

As I said above at first listen SB is interesting and can get your enthusiasm up (maybe a bit too much), but with repeated listenings, this gradually wears off and you find that their influences are a bity too evident, and actually stops them from having their own sound.

Count 2.5 stars, tops
