I have had the fortune to see this band live probably one of a few American’s to see them play live. Neil Mackie’s voice and guitar playing were wonderful and it shows on the album. Gordon Mackie on bass was equally as important and energetic. Mike Baxter’s roll in giving this album its melodic ambiance cannot be over estimated. Ken Weir’s roll as drummer is wonderful as he can play pastor passages in ghost as well as rock out on other tracks. Lead guitarist Renaldo McKim gives it that polyphonic sound that I love in prog.

The album way above average and I suggest keeping an eye on their live performances. You will like both equally.
