Prog Reviewer
3 stars A totaly forgotten and unknown american band from mid 90s named Box of Crayons with only one album released named Colorblind chameleon from 1997 issued at excellent label Music Is Intelligence. The music is something between neo prog with crossover passages, something between Big Big Train same period with Alan Parsons Project meets IQ, the result is quite ok most of the time but not fantastic. The wider musical spectrum of this band makes from this album hard to get from one take, from complicated arrangements to acustic parts, Box of Crayons is an intresting and in same time unknown band worldwide. Also there are some narration here and there, plus that the vocalist remind me of famous Peter Hammill in places. In the end a colorful album with ups and downs, might be a curiosity for most of the prog heads out there. 3 stars for sure, nice art work.
