4 stars Audiophile as I am I think it is worth mentioning that this album sounds simply amazing. Got THE COSMIC REMEDY debut CD as a gift from a sound engineer who is interested in mixing and mastering in a very dynamic way. It may seem a bit quiet at the beginning, but rememeber: the volume knob is in your hands, turn it up and that is when the magic happens: this CD sounds very dynamic and clear. Fourteen songs in a very colorful variety in style: pop, powerpop, symphonic progressive rock. When talking about infulences, I think the strongest is their hommage to THE BEATLES and GENESIS, and not only in the heavy use of vintage (-sounding) instruments like MELLOTRON, MOOG and authentic vintage guitars, but it is very clear that the mixing and the mastering has been done in similar ways, preserving all the extra space you need in retro/vintage music compositions. Great songwriting skills and four fine lead voices. There are songs that aren't progressive at all, but thanks to the presence of wurlitzer piano (SUPERTRAMP influence!) or MELLOTRON, eveything falls into place. I think more progressive rock albums should sound like this one, and this one goes for pop albums too. I am looking forward to THE COSMIC REMEDY's future releases. Highly recommended to audiophile music fans!
