2 stars Sad thing that I actually feel sorry for them. What's more important, making good music, making successful music, or making music at all ? And then you have to add 1)for band 2)for casual listeners 3)for musical critics (or their freelance derivative, us, reviewers).

This is normal pop-rock, together with everything it means. It's pleasant music, not as dark as "Genesis", more bright, but also more pop-like. While this albums has rather a lot of melodies, they're mostly not-interesting ones (think shallow, not complicated, intriguing, intelligent). It's not necessarily bad music, the problem is that it's full of nothing. Maybe my expectations were (with intentional finding of prog music) raised, but it only supports my theory that this isn't so much worth listening. There's a lot of better bands.
