5 stars There are two kinds of reaction when you receive an obscure stuff from past times. One is “thank God they’ve disbanded”, and the better one is “pretty good! Another prove that all good albums are from 70s/80s/90s”. STEP AHEAD is from the second passage. Moreover, they are almost flawless!

I’m honest with myself. Surely this is not an all-time masterpiece, it has some average songs, but the whole impression is more than enjoyable! Strong musicianship, complex yet catchy and melodic songs and epics, very good quality of record and performance…Besides album is made in my favourite way – this is Symphonic Prog, but catchy and accessible enough to be called Neo. Vocals are somewhat Jon Anderson-like, but less high-pitched and more powerful; keyboards are classy and fiery; guitars are melodic and shiny (almost proto-MARILLION!). Pity they didn’t manage to make another album and time swallowed them. Thanks for Musea for this re-edition; pure enjoyment for every Symphonic/Neo devotee! Get it, it must not be missed and forgotten. Highly recommended!!!
