1 stars Take some of the phrasings of mid 1970s Queen and Styx without any of their dramatic talents and you get an idea of what Scaramouche is about. That is, at best this CD is marginally symphonic progressive, but every track is so forgettable that it doesn't really matter. At first it sounds like the closer, "Isn't it Real" might qualify for exit out of the morass, but it's only close to acceptable.

This is as good an example as any of what happens when a band has influences without inspiration. While the Musea and Garden of Delights catalogues are bursting with one-album groups that deserved more, Scaramouche represents a band that made one album..too many.
