3 stars Third album by date from 2007 named In focus, well Alias Eye needed 4 years to come with a new release, and to be fair is less consistent then previous two. A little to modern in sound to my taste but keeping the same attitude like before. The guitar player from previous record choose to leave, and his replacement brought with him a new musical philosophy, the album being a little more simple in arrangements but yet accesible and good. The album overall is more on rock side, the progressive parts are now limited to some lements here and there, not bad really, but the result is quite pale, but not bad in contrast with the first two records. Here are aswell funk moments, some jazz elements thrown in , and the variety of the pieces is all over. Again Philip Griffiths is an important element hre, his voice being good, but the excellent moments are kinda far. The album is from good, to inconsistent with some fillers , but taken as a whole is a good one, who desearve 3 stars. Best parts are History Lesson, very good guitar arrangements and the mellow piano orientated piece Books, the rest are so so. Definetly less great then before, and I think they run out of ideas here, is to much variety in pieces. 3 stars, still enjoyble from time to time.
