I wouldn’t call them retro-prog, per se, though they draw heavily from the big acts of the ‘70s. There’s plenty of fresh innovation and subtle, semi-metallic hints to keep this album interesting.
Such a great piece I listened to it dozen times. It talks to my teenage Smashing-Pumpkins-fan ears but with a chill, psychedelic vibe that better corresponds to what I like now. Excellent narrative balance, great sound, I love it.
Favorite track: Wide Awake But Still Asleep.

When I realized this record was one year old, I remembered how this album got me through the COVID-19 pandemic last summer. I work in a state park in Massachusetts and we saw record visitation. It was a tough time and I just kept this record on blast! And for that reason I bought it on vinyl so thank you Elder!!! I hope for many more years of good music. dad-metal.monster

One of the best examples of a modern band making vintage prog music without it being old, or trying to hard to replicate what was done before. Its easy for modern prog to be too far into basic rock, this band does anything but that. Highly recommend. Grievous Swoons

Some people say Dark Side of the Moon is the essential tripping album... but this, for me personally, is currently the top dog. The perfect cosmic headspace for an out of this world trip. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. mushieman95

Just beautiful. One of the most musically accomplished bands going right now. Love the sly nod to Hendrix - 'Crosstown Traffic' anyone? A little splash of Zep's 'The Rain Song' too.
And you'll never hear surf music again... kooper66
