3 stars Now get your pens and paper out kids and write this one down as it is a real keeper for sure. 6 piece Greek prog band who take neo - prog into a direction you won't believe. What is immediately recognizable is their compassion to the magic of MARILLION and IQ, without sounding too cliché'ish or "tribute'ish" and in no way from my view are another one of those "MARILLION rip off neo prog acts". For me the first striking element was the distinct vocal talents of lead singer simply called Ima who convincingly sings in english with a lovely voice. La TULIPE NOIRE musicianship in support is also very solid with dual guitars and keyboards very reminiscent of IQ's Martin ORFORD, early MARILLION's Mark Kelly and certainly Clive NOLAN. For those who do not really like neo-prog then I would recommend you stay away from this beast otherwise for the rest of you then I would put this into the essential category for new neo prog talents.
