Notes: Aggressive. Moody. A very classy, professional album in a style reminiscent of Collective Soul, only better. The liner notes include special thanks to Yes, among many others. Various members of Yes were announced to be appearing on the band's subsequent album, but this did not come to pass in the end. Stockwell has engineered for Yes and claimed to have been Khoroshev's understudy on the Open Your Eyes tour, Japanese leg (given concerns over Khoroshev's visa status). However, such comments from Stockwell seem to have been exaggerations. Later, Stockwell and Haug would both end up in Alan White's eponymous band White, but Stockwell was out after only a few live shows. (Ray Riethmeier; additional info HP, 1 May 05)
