3 stars High Spy from UK is quite an obscure neo prog band that fail to make it big in prog circles, despite the good music offered. Head for the moon is a studio album released in 2009 after some live releases puted on market by the band. I ike what I've heared here, is the type of neo prog I like constantly to listen, even the production and overall sound is not crystal clear. Nice passages from more up tempo dominated by guitars dueling with keybords to more calmer almost Floydian in aproach this release is a winner in my book. Similaritis are with Final Conflict another lesser known neo prog act, and also they remind me a lot with Mangrathea also from UK. The music is as other reviewers observed , old fasion, vintage, sometimes sounded like in 80s. The arrangements are powerfull, the guitar is present all over, the keyboards same, there are long instrumental sections very similar with Comedy of Errors in apraoch. All in all fairly decent towards great.. Quite unnoticed band, they released a new album few months ago. 3.5 stars for sure, very nice, catchy neo prog.
