This CD featured a serious shakeup from the lineup on their debut, "Peace Among the Ruins". Only leader/founder Kurdt Vanderhoof and lead vocalist Scott Albright remain from the original lineup. Basically the same pieces are in place here, with the arrangements being more cohesive and less.... hard rock? The nods are all there: Styx, Kansas, Yes, Genesis, name your prog poison.
Unlike the first CD, tho, there is not a single "meh" number on this CD. My personal favorite track is "One Tragedy At a Time". And coming in at just over 14 minutes long, it's quite a jamfest, with a chorus that just won't quit. "I'm Not Blind" is quite a rant, while "The Mind Machine" and "You're Alive" are seriously proggish.
A whopping 4.5 stars.

I was much looking forward to this disc after Presto Ballet's debut "Peace Among the Ruins". But if you have "Peace..." and you buy this disc, put all your expectations on the shelf. The very first thing that jumped out at me was the utter lack of bombast (for lack of a better word). This CD is definitely lighter-duty than "Peace...". As someone who prefers the heavier side of prog rock (i.e., Dream Theater, Shadow Gallery, etc...), my initial reaction was disappointment.

HOWEVER... I have listened to the disc straight through 5 or 6 times now, and I will say it is growing on me. After all, it is still Presto Ballet. There are certainly very intriguing chord progressions, rhythms, and so on. There is a lot to appreciate about this disc once you accept it as it's own entity and throw away your expectations based on the previous disc.

Wow, I had heard good things about this Kurdt Vanderhoof band and it was correct. This album sounds like it could have been written in 1975. I have always loved Metal Church, but this is 100% different. Sounds like Kansas, Gentle Giant or Genesis. The synth player sounds a lot like Rick Wakeman. Kurdt's playing is solid. The drummer Bill Raymond is very good.
Excellent price for this 7 song album. These are long songs though. Get this today.
