4 stars Swiss group Shakary hasn't had a high profile, at least is search results on the internet says something of a bands profile. Which is too bad. This double CD, containing remixed/rerecorded tracks from the bands first two releases, is excellent.

The band seems to be influenced by groups like Marillion, Eloy and Camel - and similar sounding bands. Lots of keyboards everywhere here, floating above, twirling in the middle and setting the mood in the back of the soundscapes. Sometimes restrained, but most often filling up every nook and cranny of the soundscape.

Add to the synths excellent musicianship from drums, bass and guitar , and the soulfull emotional vocals of Noel McCalla as well, and you've got a brilliant sounding release.

No masterpiece, but a strong release without any obvious weaknesses - as long as you like keyboard and synth dominated progressive rock.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
