4 stars Picklelegaz this dutch neo prog band with strange name is quite unknown in prog circles, no wonder because they formed in 1988, the first album came after more then 10 years in 1999 and the follow up afer 13 years in 2012, so a career with 25 years and only 2 studio albums. Well, despite some negative reviews I saw here and there their second offer from 2012 named Bedroom circus is a total winner for me, really. Taken influence from Marillion or IQ, both instrumentaly and aswell in vocal departmen, Picklelegaz manage to make a solid release in neo prog field. I don't find any monotonous passages as other reviewers saw in this album, I don't mind at all the vocalist accent, and above all I find it quite enjoyble and well composed. I can even say that Bedroom circus sounds more intresting and catchy then more then half of neo prog albums on the market in last years. Pieces like title track with nice chorus, Last Child is excellent aswell with nice keyboards and guitars and the ending track Anger & Fear nearly 16 min pure neo delight with diversity in arrangements finds this album among my fav lately. The vocal arrangement are more then ok to my ears, I even like a lot Ernst Brobbel voice , specially on Last child. All in all, this is great, and for that reason I can't give less then 4 stars, I like a lot what I've heared and definetly among the most intresting neo prog albums I know.
