2.0 out of 5 stars It too formulaic, 18 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flying Colors [Limited Edition] (Audio CD)
I've listened to this album now half a dozen times and still don't get it. Perhaps I have got a different album from all the other reviews! Personally I would not call this prog, more like carefully crafted rock music. Whilst it encompasses a variety of styles (including some blantant, Queen, Muse and Doors rip-offs)with some memorable hooks and melodies, what kills it for me is that I find the album tedious because most tracks are structured the same way: 1 or 2 verses, chorus, another verse, chorus, slightly shorter verse perhaps in different key, solo, chorus, end. Once you have listed to the first minute or so of a track that's about it, you might as well skip to the next track. Yes, I know most tracks a short-ish (3-5 mins) but from these guys I expected more originality. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of Mile Pourtney and Niel Morse and have a lot of their stuff, so I had great expectations for this album but I am left somewhat disappointed.

You obviously were expecting a PROG album. It's not. Yet it is FAR more complex than a pop album with phenomenal songwriting. Me, I love both.....and this has oooooooodles of both whilst erring on the side of the songwriting. The production is frighteningly magnificent also. You should be ashamed of yourself giving this 2 stars. Its one of the best albums ever made.....end of.

Why shouldn't it get two stars from a reviewer who doesn't like it.Thats what reviewing is all about and a good negative informative review it is.
