Such an awesome clean-tone!

That limelight/innocence faded description of this song is spot-on.

This. I almost caved and listened to it but I want to hear it in context of the album.

Well, so far I've thought none of the three songs I've heard from the album have been anything spectacular for me... My hopes for the album have been very diminished at this point. But of course Enigma Machine and Illumination Theory have to be good.

I LOVED that song and everything about it. The Rush influence was very apparent, and it worked really well. Instant classic for me.

I would agree on the first 2 tracks but TLG is an amazing track. sorry.

My expecations were boosted due to The Looking Glass.  CANNOT WAIT!
