The band is very underrated and doesn't deserve that tons of negative labels given by critics - many great songs are spreaded at their albums, the quality of recordings is just superb, and progressive fans also will find here many interesting things.

Parsons provides progressive pop...perfectly. I ROBOT is a good place to start. "I Wouldn't want to Be Like You" is something very rare...dancable progressive that's not pretentious.
