Review Type: 

I hear a lot of potential in Jolly’s blend of prog metal, emotional undercurrents, and inventive approach. Strong vocal harmony throughout the recording along with killer arrangements makes for a great musical time. There’s plenty to discover as the band easily transitions between mellow sections and parts with more grit. What’s interesting is that, while the songs echo bands as Threshold, Rush, Pain of Salvation and Yes, they don’t sound too dated. These songs capture a creative energy and manage to sound fresh and invigorating. Dream Theater-esque melodies pop up all over the songs with the traditional prog rock elements. The rhythm team of Anthony Rondinone and Louis Abramson is very subtle yet powerful, especially in Abramson’s clever time changes and fills. When you get right down to it, there are no weak tracks on second part of The Audio Guide To Happiness.. This is a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience.
