      PROS; The music is a cross between Yes and Planet P Project with a hint of Bowie. The composer is very talented and not afraid of movement. I found this very easy to listen closely to or just have as a background for other activities. The story is new age joyful sadness that reminds me of early progressive style lyrics and phrasing, but still with enough uniqueness for it to be new sounding. The guitar is clean and true. The piano is presented very tastefully. CONS; Drums sound thin and authentically fake. (If it's a machine get a human, if it's a human check for a pulse.) The bass seems to be absent and/or too far down in the mix. All in all I enjoyed this album and would suggest it to friends and fellow musicians.
