Merchant's Vice - this neo prog band that gone under the radar will release only one album in 2003 named Amber and then gone into oblivion. The music is pleasent, the type of neo prog that I like, not boring at all, in same league, musicaly speaking with Arena, Pendragon, Medicine Man, Janison Edge, Grey Lady Down and alike. There are members from Medicine Man/Janison Edge here aswell, the bass player for example. As I said the music is good towards great, nice keyboards here very Cive Nolan in aproach and aswell the vocal parts are great, Les Wardle is a quite good neo prog singer. All in all a nice debut, but somehow they never made it in this scene, but I think they needed a far more attention. Reason to Change or Storyteller are great neo prog pieces. All in all a nice one, fans of the genre pick this up, worth every second.
