4 stars This is definetly the best band from The Netherlands of all time. I mean, off course Alquin, Kayak, Supersister and all those 1980's neoproggers and 1990's Arjen Lucassen's projects are pretty good to listen to, but the Plackband never let me down for one single bit and or beat.

The sound this group is creating originated way back in 1977, songs like After the Battle, See the dwarf and Seventy Warriors came withing a few months, and you cannot - I repeat CANNOT - compare Plackband with Marillion. You can compare Marillion with Plackband. I mean when I played the Bside of Misplaced Childhood a few hours after its release, way back in 1985, Plackband's drummer Tommie was visiting me and he and I couldn't believe our ears: exact the same melody and countermelody as the ancient Plackband song Ghost Town (written in April 1980!)

Nevertheless: all of you enjoy this big moment in the space time continuum of the progressive rock multiversum!
