4 stars Each Mind's Eye album has a mind of its own. From the cozy clearness of 2002's Work of Art to the full blown metal of 2007's Gentleman's Hurricane. Walking on H20 is in between in heaviness, speed and density. Basically, it's hard rock with huge choruses and choppy, stop-start rhythms. Unusual feature of this band that it's a project of the drummer - hence the attention to rhythm. He also provides background synths, that, although nothing special, add one more rhythmic layer.

To me, this album has a certain 80s feel to it, the bright keys and a slick, treble-y production. Also reminding of the 80s are the overlong song lengths, even though they are mostly similar in structure: introductory melody-verse-transition-pre-chorus-chorus, repeat, bridge, well you get the picture. So, even though almost every song has a strong hook - mainly in the melody introducing the verse and the chorus - 74 minutes of mid-tempo choppy rhythms is best digested in several sittings.
