My mini "review" (yes, I admit to having listened to it already, because I'm going on a ski trip and will not get my hands on it for quite a few days):
There is some really cool stuff on that album. It is absolutely clear that this is a JP+JR+JLB album, and they have some great, great moments.
That said, I actually plan on making a "fan edit" of the album, because there is a lot of stuff that doesn't pull its weight. Most of the ballads kinda blur together, and so I will identify the (for me) strong parts and hopefully successfully blend them together into something I will repeatedly listen to. In its entirety it is not something I expect to feel desire to listen to.
I really, really like Our New World. It is so light-hearted, it's a breeze of fresh air blown into a stale room. As I said, best thing they have done in a long time. Even just for that tune it's worth purchasing the album.
"Inspiration corner" is weirdly clustered in one part of the album. You go from a "Waiting for the worms" song (Brother Do You Hear Me) into a "Tempus Fugit" right after. Luckily not much Rush this time, at least musically.
And now to the dreadful part of the review: As I said, this is a JP+JR+JLB album. And that's all it is. JM and MM, sorry. I really don't know how to put it otherwise, but MM managed to put 3 hours of lifeless drumming onto that album. At least JM gets that delightful groove on "A New Beginning".
