No More Pain - The Post Human Condition (2015)

The second album from this US band.

I was quite happy with their debut album Debate And Rhyme from 2012. Good catchy prog rock. Pretty hard rocking prog too.

This four piece still have a lineup of keyboards, bass, drums, guitars and vocals. Some very good vocals too. 

They have shed most of the hard rock and gone for a much more Pink Floyd'ish sound with big sound paintings and a lot of melody. They comes across as a mix of Marillion, Porcupine Tree and Gazpacho. The sound is still very American. 

The album is one hour and a quarter long. There are in total eleven songs here. Three of the songs are over ten minutes long. The closing song The Network is almost eighteen minutes long. 

Some of the music is very good. Some of it is decent and most of it is good. This is a good album with some highlights and some lowlights. I like their sound and I like most of the stuff here. Check out this album.
