3 stars Forth album Music for sharks from 2009 issued by this great canadian neo prog band, is a let daown album in comparation with previous 3 works, I mean is far from the greatness and imaginative Gentry album, by far their best record they ever done. Music for sharks a little bland and pale in many parts but overall is not bad. First, to my ears is more laid back, more safe, the compositions never get over that mid tempo arrangements, and second the neo prog offered here is the most accesible band ever done. 6 pieces, most of the time geting in Marillion territory, specially the guitar of Caron. But Caron being an excelent guitarist and composer, I really like his tone of the guitar, knew to hide some passages that sounding to much a la Marillion and turning them is some ok ones with great solos and riffs. Maybe the best tune from here is Shark Man clocking over 16 min, the rest are ok and nothing more. In the end this album is the weakes Red Sand ever done, not really bad but mediocre. Hardly 3 stars
