3 stars Third album of this discrete band named Somersaul from 1997. Well, this time they change direction here, not bad, but not an improvement over previous two albumas for sure. Now they are a little more lighter in sound but good again. Gone are now the IQ members from previous work and were replaced by Steve Hunt on bass and Mike Torr from keys. They sound more like Egdon Heath from Holland or Twin Age from Sweden now and less like Iq, Pendragon or Arena. The pieces are all godd, with up tempo parts who are very well melted with slower ones in a typical Jadis atmosphere. This album brings nothing new under neo prog roof, but is well played nad has some good moments over all like opening track Live This Lie , great guitar chops and Falling Away , the rest are ok. Somersault deserves from me 3 stars, is a good album in Jadis standards and has his own merits.
