1 stars Well, it only gets worse prog-pickers, this is a dire uninspiring dirge from beginning to end. Far too much singing (thats because it all sounds the same, the tempo settles just as the singer begins his soul-less narration, or so it seems to me....) English Boy wonders !!! Not the song writers thats for sure..... I know a lot of people hate plagiarism and sort of retro copies of Yes/Genesis - but this CD could do with a bit of 70's prog injected into it's sorry attempts at interesting music.Words fail me, on how they churn out the same song and so on in an attempt to out rubbish themselves with every track. Nothing is inspired, just listless music adrift in the doldrums of the nowhere lyrics and hum-drum tempo, sort of boring by numbers. I was thinking of how people slag off IQ's "Nom zamo" and "Are you Sitting comfortably" two albums that may be classed as Crossover prog because those 80's cds have very poppy efforts on also...However, If I give this one star (I have to, can;t give it no-stars) then both the IQ efforts would be 10 start efforts in comparisson. Don't take my word for it - buy this CD, listen to it and then realise you've just wasted 70 minutes of your life....
