I shouldn't have been negative, because this one shows what their sound is all about. Psychedelic Prog with zesty Sci-Fi sounds for good measure.
Today's track, Apocalypse Dreams, shows a similar sound for the fans, but it also shows that they're less laid-back with the approach and that they're capable of slightly more complicated and equally well produced music.
Give it a listen.
It's a bit of a lengthy track, sure, but it'll give you a great idea of what the album is like. A pretty happy feeling, echoing vocals, and well timed use of various instruments.
The base is a Psychedelic sound, and I'm glad they kept that clear. Where they managed to upgrade a bit was with the tempo and the changes. It's got a nice Prog feel to it that doesn't go over the top but makes the song really stand out.
Pare that up with a falsetto and use of some catchy chords here and there and you get a great view on the whole album. However, that doesn't mean it's all gonna sound the same.

The only problem I really have with the album is that I can't decide if it's as good or better than its predecessor. It's troubling in the sense that usually in the music world, every album after the first is a step-down from par. It's just hard for me to believe my ears.
But I'm sure everyone will have their own opinions, so if you liked Apocalypse Dreams I recommend at the very least finding a stream for the album to listen for yourself. It'll be worth it.
