In the history of popular music, supergroups have a spotty track record. For every winner, the landscape is littered with many more typically short-lived projects of varying degrees of quality and success. Arguably, they are weighed down by their egos, pedigree, and the high, and often unrealistic, expectations of absolute perfection -- every album must be an utter masterpiece. But it usually doesn't worked out that way.

Progressive rock Squackett - A Life Within A Day particular is rather notorious for its attempts at supergroups. A Life Within a Day leans toward highly melodic pop-flavored sounds but with plenty of the intricate twists and turns and occasional heaviness expected of progressive rock musicians.

The liner notes cite the obvious Yes and Genesis influences, Squackett - A Life Within A Day well as that of Led Zeppelin and the Beatles. This music also radiates the sophisticated dreaminess of Toccata For A Wild Old Lady - Various - Cafe In Takt Alan Parsons Project. Squire and Hackett share vocals, often with lots of harmonies; Squire 's harmony backing vocals are a crucial but rarely acknowledged component of the Yes sound.

The ever-changing arrangement of the dramatic and engaging opener "A Life Within a Day" gives the listener a taste of things to come.

The hypnotic "Tall Ships," which originated as Squire was trying out a new bass guitar, gives Hackett the opportunity to stretch out on both classical and electric guitar runs. A quirky arrangement drives "Sea of Smiles," but the catchy chorus and Hackett 's brightly distorted guitar tie it all together. The outstanding "Stormchaser" -- definitely the most Led Zeppelin -influenced song on the album -- hammers home a steady midtempo rumble with rigid guitar riffs and ghostly keyboards.

The ethereal "Can't Stop the Rain" is highlighted by Lehmann 's backing vocals. As indispensable members of the mightiest titanic groups in progressive rock, expectations were bound to Mentalism - Lilith (14) - Mentalism high; simply put, Squackett 's A Life Within a Day exceeds expectations and is a worthy addition to the legacies of Squire and Hackett.
