5 stars Panic Room Skin

Would you rate Uriah Heep Magician's Birthday or Wishbone Ash Argus 1-3 stars just because they are not complex enough? I doubt. The same is with Panic Room Skin. The complexity is not a high point of these 11 songs set, where almost each of them has a small neat moment. So nice, melodic and touching. Highest point here is vocal, soulful and passionate, it's ranging from gentle to powerful, and everywhere in between it's very enjoyable. Great musicianship, string section, excellent drumming, musical arrangement and stunning crystal-clear sound quality are also high points of this album. Did I mention gorgeous backside on the front cover?

We have to rate this album not for what it should be, but for what it is: Soft Rock with Prog elements. We need such a music to have a brake, sometime, from heavy and complex stuff, and this album serves it purpose perfectly. To my surprise, I found myself to listen to it again and again, when it was just released, then I put it on the shelf, and now, I'm listening to it with the same pleasure.

5 softly rocking stars.
