3 stars 3.5 Every new album by this band has a different taste. Since the former Once Around The World they have abandoned Pop, but also Prog, to get somewhere in the middle, more Art-Rock if you like. The themes do not have the standard closed structure but they are not progressive either. It is the peculiar inflections that Francis Dunnery makes in the voices that characterize the melodies, kind of funny and teaser, and in many occasions backed by others playing choral. Guitars have gone metal definitely, and a little bit funky too. The sound is much more compact than before, with the bass line acting as glue rather than setting rhythms. The album is rather uniform with a good quality in its own style and flawless execution, although some tracks stand out, as the ballade Still Too Young To Remember. I like the combination of choral singing and guitar riff in Sister Sarah, the only guitar acoustic theme Charlie, which could have been cut down to half or less, and the mood in Leaving Without You. In short, a good album for Art-Rock followers with little prog in it.
