My feelings are very mixed. The acoustic stuff from Howe is really nice. The best one of these is the very clever rearrangement of "Madrigal". Very good.
On the other hand, the only full band number I like is "We Can Fly From Here", mainly because Davison doesn't have to try and sound like Anderson. The band sounds pretty thin and sluggish on the rest of them. This version of "Parallels" is ATROCIOUS. Downes plays a really clunky solo that ruins the song.
Looks like you'll have to stay on the train longer. As I'm sure that you've heard, a new studio album is coming in October.
