3 stars AFAIAC, this is FB's only album worth hearing, or even considering for this site's musical scope. Some consider this album one of Germany's better 70's symphonic prog album, and it's not entirely wrong to think so, but there are moments when they sound like they didn't even care if they borrowed openly and with total impunity. Indeed, if the intro of the opening track does not refer you directly to Genesis' Watcher Of The Skies, you're due for an ear and brain check-up urgently?. And you'll find a fair bit more of these moments throughout the album's three tracks. But that's not to say that everything on Fading Beauty sounds borrowed or derivative of some English prog bands. Despite a certain amount of "cloned" ADN, the band did manage some moments where their developed their own personalities at times. In many ways, FB's music is flattering enough to 70's prog lovers that the "inspired dimension" of their music can pass down the throat and be digested fairly easily.
