3 stars ***1/2

This is a somewhat frustrating album because the superb opening track promises so much more than the rest of the CD actually delivers. Sweet Perdition (14.27) begins Emergence in spectacular fashion - suggesting that this album might be the masterpiece that Visible Wind have seemed capable of producing - it's a magnificent slab of intelligent progressive music. Unfortunately the band don't follow up with anything of a similar standard -a good neo-prog song, two short instrumental pieces, a couple of servicable well played ballads and three totally forgettable (bar one short organ solo) basic heavy rock tracks rather too full of cliches to be fun.

Instrumentally and vocally the band are fine, but they still seem unsure as to whether they want to be a symphonic proigressive band or a heavy rock AOR outfit. It could have been so much more, but the CD is worth getting for the first track alone. Worth investigating.
