3 stars From time to time I like to dip into my music collection and replay a cd that hasn't been played very often, usually because I wasn't that impressed with it on initial hearing and often can't even remember what it sounded like. This is the case with Flamborough Head's album, Defining the Legacy. I'm pleased to say though that it is much better than I remember it.

My first impression on first and title track is that there's some very nice Keyboard sounds going on here, decent musicianship but not complex. The Drumming is fairly simple in a Nick Mason kind of style but fits the music fine, which is Symphonic/Neo-Prog. The Guitar playing is tasteful and well executed, venturing into quite heavy riffing occasionally with some nice solo's and the Vocals and Bass are more than adequate too. This pretty much continues throughout the album with three of the tracks clocking in at over 11 minutes, which as it happens are the best.

Listening again I'm not really sure why the strengths of this cd seemed to pass me by when I first bought it but I'm glad I gave it another chance and I've enjoyed it enough to want to investigate further into their catalogue. Fans of Arena and early Marillion might want to check them out.
