Seeming to maintain some of the alternative pop style of its predecessor Radiation, this album also seems to hark back to an older Marillion era while still reaching into the future. The band really seems to be working at creating a new niche for itself in a more modern rock field, while still pulling in some of its legacy. Among the influences that appear on this disc are such diverse artists as Jellyfish, Yes, Pink Floyd, the Beatles, and ELP. It is a very entertaining album that really grows on you. The musicians are Steve Hogarth, Steve Rothery, Mark Kelly, Pete Trewavas, and Ian Mosley.
