Amazing songwriting and atmospheres with mix of classic prog/pop elements with contemporary drum programming and soundscapes (about Zdiar)
People Sound (early music portal)
Consent Under Coercion is a damn fine album
Emma Roebuck, Progzilla Radio
This is a true solo effort with no frills and some good progressive rock. Brian Johnstone is quite a talent.
Keith Hannaleck, Prog Rock Music Talk
Fantastic songs, musically brilliant and a pretty good vocalist thrown in there too. This has to be one of the better Prog albums i’ve bought recently.
