5 stars "Fanfarre & Fantasy" of Scottish band COMEDY OF ERROS show to us another good example of how to make good progressive rock music without the necessity of complicated use of scales and time signatures , being enough inspiration and good taste. This album flow with such naturalness which , although the musicians are skilled in their own instruments, in fact isn't the main attraction in their compositions. This second album ( how already said the P A collaborator - Easy Livin SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator / Retired Admin - "While "Disobey" was a landmark album of "neo- prog", "Fanfare and Fantasy" takes a more symphonic approach, the nine magnificent tracks here being carefully crafted masterpieces of the genre". Review #933466, Posted Thursday, March 21, 2013) and I entirely agree !!!! The band show some influences like GENESIS, YES, CAMEL from the old stream of symphonic prog and PENDRAGON, JADIS and MINDGAMES ( in fact in some vocals passages , Joe Cairney's vocals reminds me a lot Bart Schram's voice from MINDGAMES) and including , some musical "lanscapes" like in track 4 "Going for a Song". Other interesting moment be in track 6 "The Cause" a true symphonic piece of music, with a long keyboard / choir introduction in a ceremonial mass atmosphere and a posterior "minuet" ( or something like this). The last track 4 "The Answer" and his keyboards arrangements and the sequent ballad theme guided by electric-guitar and vocals, close the album with perfection ! My rate is 5 stars !!!
