Definitely a different sound than the Flower Kings but as good as anything they produce. Enough said.
Why not 5 stars? I reserve 5 stars for the very rare killer CD that totally blows me away. I have been listening to progressive music for the better part of 35 years. 4 stars still means buy it! 5 stars means, to me, it could be a classic of modern Prog. i.e. The first Transatlantic CD.
