Bright, sparkling US prog. Starcastle has all the things that I like about Supertramp -- uber-polished sound and performance, squeaky-clean major-key vocal harmonies, twinkly synths, a general sense of nerdy prog being married to some form of pop music -- with more full-on prog noodling, and none of the half-hearted stabs at political/social commentary. So... it sounds pretty much exactly like Yes, is what I'm saying. Just noticed that we have a copy of this album at my work, and can't wait to annoy my hipster coworkers with it!
