4 stars AVIARY "Same", certainly is an album capable to captivate a great segment of progressive rock fans. This effect is maybe due to the fact of although their music be very close to "pop" or even "glamour" rock in style of bands like 10CC, CITY BOY, STYX, QUEEN, they produce a high quality music and don't sound like a cheap copy of none of previous mentioned bands. Besides they are able to join a good dose of instrumental skill and a high energy sensation in all tracks. The influence of STYX can be perceived soon at the track 1 "Soaring" a "heavy ballad" with a much accentuate hard rock beat, a guitar solo with "sustained" notes and a vocal chorus, typical from Dennis De Young and cia. the track 2 " Anthem For The U.S.A." reminds me a lot CITY BOY. The track 3 " Puddles" stay in a half way between 10CC and Queen due the theatrical interpretation of theme. The track 4 " As Close As You Can Get " make impressed by the great Vocal similarity between Brad Love's vocal and Freddie Mercury. Another detachable tracks as; track 6 "Feel The Heart (Then You'll Be Mine Again) " close to STYX style and one of most progressive moments in the album, maybe the synthesizers intermissions, and finally the last track "Maple Hall" and their interesting bass arrangement. My rate is 4 stars !!!
