2 stars This is a big disappointment !!!!

I bought "Belighted" on the basic of the excellent reviews it has received on Progarchives. To date 35% of reviewers have given it 5 star rating. Usually when a new band without a big biased fan base gets that many 5 star reviews it indicates that they have produced something exceptional. But this is no masterpiece of progressive rock in my book.

I have listened to the disc a number of times now and again as I am writing this review in case I was missing something. One word sums it up: Boring.

Mostly fairly monotonous female vocals backed by keyboards. Sure there is some nice keyboard playing but it mind boggling how this could be considered a masterpiece, I just dont comprehend why.

It is off to a bad start with the spoke words on the first track. That is just annoying. I hoped for an improvement after that but to me the album is just repetitive. The best track is track 13 K.O.S. which is a bit more of a band effort with some real drumming, its also the longest at 6:06 minutes so no prog epics here !!!

I could only give this two stars.
