3 stars “Hologram” is a debut record by Swiss/Italian band CLEPSYDRA (a cradle of other wonderful bands like SHAKARY and ZENIT, now disbanded as far as I informed :( ). It was warmly greeted by European Prog public in early 90s; musically it is close to early H/late Fish MARILLION (“Clutching at Straws”/”Seasons End” period) – no lengthy tracks, a lot of ballads with astonishing guitar solos, accessible sound and lyrics-oriented music (recording quality is far from high class standards but still listenable). For those who never heard CLEPSYDRA before I’d recommend their “More Grains of Sand” as a start-point. If you dislike it, you can give up your researches: all CLEPSYDRA albums are pretty “samey”, with some minor differences. But for MARILLION devotees this band is an absolute Must.
