Prog Reviewer
2 stars In fact I fully agree to my co-reviewer Eliott that this is a very poor album in terms of progressive rock. The first one I got into my hands from them was Future Legends and I was completely fascinated by it and in the naive hoping that everything by Fruupp would sound similar I tried to get every album by them. Fortunately I did not have to buy them to have a listen. My god what a disappointment, especially by this record. Not everything on it is bad, don't get me wrong. But there are so many songs sounding just awfully pop-ish or "Prog-light-ish" and the vocals are really terrible. There is not any song that stands a comparison to their fantastic debut, which was obviously their masterpiece, as far as I listened to their other albums. IMHO it can't even compared with music by THE BEATLES, it would be a disgrace for them because they had some songs which were much more progressive than any on this record. Sometimes there are some cheap more poppy adaptations of classical themes but everything doesn't have the high quality of their debut. Really a pity for this band because the skills obviously were present but it seams for some (monetary) reason they decided to take this way what did not help them either to become more famous. For collectors only definitely!
