Prog Reviewer
3 stars Ovrfwrd - this young and quite talented band (with a strange name) from USA issued so far 2 albums. Their latest to date from 2015 is named Fantasy absent reason, and I think is the most intresting from the two released so far. They play instrumental prog rock with emphasis on keyboards and guitar as might be expected. Influences can be traced from mid to late 70s prog, also some jazzy passages are present, in the end the music are colorful and quite good most of the time with complicated parts . As I said the album is good from start to finish, but I can't saying is very creative or original, only played corectly and with power. The main attraction is Chris Malmgren's keyboards, at least for me. Dust nova I think is the highlight here. So, finaly, a well rounded release from this band, but I think is needed some improvements here and there, because, at least for me, some pieces are to many times sounding like a jam band without a clear direction. 3 stars for sure
