4 stars Three years ago I bought a Prog magazine “Hatross” (№ 6). As far as I know, this was (and IS, but only on-line now :( ) the only Russian magazine to be specialized in Progressive Rock. There was an article dedicated to obscure European Prog bands, and I decided to found them all one day. Do I need to say that my dream came true? ;) One of the bands there was TAI PHONG.

TAI PHONG’s debut album mostly has solid tracks. There are powerful opener “Going Away” (made in best YES traditions), ballads like “Sister Jane” and “Fields of Gold” (both are pretty radio-friendly, but enjoyable) and closing magnum opus “Out of the Night”, that can boast of having one of the most wonderful melodies I ever heard. If you’re into mainstream Prog a-la FM or KLAATU, you’ll definitely like this. Still, this is no way Prog-related or something, this is true Symphonic Prog (with teeth sometimes!) bordering Space Rock in some moments. To be short – YES meets PINK FLOYD at their best. Nice and enjoyable record, and thankfully to “Out of the Night” it gets 4 stars. Recommended!
