Sound — 8
The sound on this album is phenomenal. It's not nessecarily groundbreaking, or incredibly unique, but it works really well with the Dave's voice. I really like the sound of We're So Far Away, the second track on the album. Overall, the sound is good, and it works with Dave's voice, but could be more unique.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are absoloutly fabulous. They are obviously well thought out, and if they're rushed, it doesn't show. I really like the lyrics in every song. The lyrics generally fit well with the beat of the song, except for a few instances which are really trivial. Dave has a great voice, I really like how it integrates with the guitar and keyboard work.
Overall Impression — 8
I love the mood of this album, it conveys a mood of magic, and it feels like a storybook, because the prologue track is just like an audio book. My favorite songs are "We're So Far Away," "Suspension," "The Ocean" and "Cover Me." I love the lyrics of the album, but the guitar sounds are sometime monotonous. The keyboard is really good too, that serves to break the monotony.
