3 stars I was quite taken with Yleclipse's latest album, Songs From the Crackling Atanor, which I found a rare example of a Genesis soundalike band really nailing the distinctively romantic medieval atmosphere of Trespass. However, on Opus they were still honing their skills, and whilst they were able to put together a decent Genesis-mimicing sound at the same time it still doesn't quite feel satisfying - the atmosphere's a little off, the songwriting is a little obvious, and it doesn't quite have the spark that Yleclipse would eventually invest their music with. Definitely check out the group's later albums before passing judgement on them, because despite the title, this ain't their magnum opus.
