I just wanted to add my 2 cents worth to the other reviews. Being just a tad too young to have enjoyed the progressive rock glory days, I often find myself wondering what it might have been like to discover progressive rock from the giants while they were in full flight. It must have been fun to listen to the new Yes, ELP or King Crimson album as they came out rather than having to discover them through old recordings. Ever on the search for truly great progressive rock music that doesn’t sound dated, derivative or simply “playing at progressive rock,” I occasionally come across an album that makes me glad to be enjoying progressive rock today in 2008. This album sounds fresh, the melodies are strong and the playing is superb. I’ve come to expect nothing less of the Flower Kings camp. Perhaps this is a little unfair, so take it for what it’s worth, but this album is a bit more linear and its figures seem a little tighter than most of the Flower Kings albums. Time seems a little more compressed and there is certainly less meandering then on FK albums, much in the same way that 90125 was a little more musically direct than say Going for the One.
