It feels pretty sad. The chorus is straight up pumped up alternative rock. It follows the formula of "Authorship of Our Lives" - soft vocals, catchy chorus with a good rhythm section, brief soaring solo. Quite relieving from the repetitive sound. Good musicianship, stellar production, but it follows a successful formula, and of course, that is not bad by all means.
It might appear dull to some prog fans, and on the contrary - enjoyable for non-prog listeners. So, in that sense, John Mitchell did a great job by mixing prog with catchy pop-y melodies. Lonely Robot is hardly some super prog-rock blowout, but instead of lengthy and histrionic showboating soloing, ambitious rock with a keen focus on intelligent words and smart song-writing is the order of the day here, with Mitchell choosing carefully when to unleash with sparingly used epic guitar journeys to raise the pulse and emotional heft of the tunes.
Listeners who liked the modern discs of artists such as Sound of Contact and David Kerzner will find quite a similar sound here, and those with longer memories might even find it often calls to mind Mitchell's own one-off but fondly remembered Kino album from that saw him collaborating with former Porcupine Tree drummer Chris Maitland and Marillion's Pete Trewavas. Not to be entirely ignored, the CD version comes with three bonus tracks. Four stars. There's a few exceptional standout moments on the disc as well.
The longer running time means the track moves through several different passages, incorporating everything from repeated chiming guitar Coldplay-like jangling radio friendly verses , a crunchy pop-perfection chorus, drifting ambient piano interludes, dreamy electric guitar ruminations and even latter-day Porcupine Tree heavy outbursts.
Fans of the diverse range of sounds found on the later Anathema and Porcupine Tree albums, bands like the Pineapple Thief, Sound of Contact, and Mitchell's own version of the band It Bites should find much to appeal to them here, as the Lonely Robot project shares a similar focus on strong accessible melodies front and center over prog-rock showboating.

On the Inside Out record label's announcement, MITCHELL stated: ''I'd long thought about doing an album where I could have total control from start to finish with the music, lyrics, production, and choosing who I wanted to contribute - expanding from the idea of just a solo album.
Musically, this album is very proggy, but more about atmosphere than technical expertise, inspired by my love of science fiction and interest in the evolution of the human race.
