Ah, this double album's really been a breath of fresh air for me, and I'm sure it can be the same for many melodic prog fans. Two years after the release of The Audio Guide To Happiness - Part 1 (click here for the review), New York-based progressive rising stars Jolly strike back with the Disc 2 of 2, that is the guide's final chapter.

07.03.2013 Who are these incredible Jolly people with such a Jolly name supporting Riverside on a tour kicking off in 2 days? And what is this brand new Jolly album that just saw the light of day? That is one awesome album, I tell you, that got crowd funded with such love by the fans when the band got dealt the business end of the hurricane Sandy. A funding that now also sees the band coming over to Europe to tour with none other than the mighty Riverside. You miss them this March, I'm having a feeling you'll regret it for a while. I have made my travel arrangements. Have you?

Just listen to the new song "Dust Nation Bleak".

I really don't understand the hype around Jolly.

After listening to a few songs I have to say I agree with you.

Rating: 7 It took a long time for me to appreciate this album a bit more. I'm starting to really dig some tracks, especially the single Dust Nation Bleak.

Same here. Nothing wonderful with this record, just decent prog with a somewhat harsh production in same parts that doesn't do any good to this. No song actually stands out here. Pretty unoriginal stuff.
