Prog Reviewer
4 stars Triumvirat is described by many as a Emerson, Lake and Palmer clone, including by me, since their sound is very alike and the main song writer, the genius Jürgen Fritz, said that Emerson, Lake and Palmer were a big inspiration for him. That may be true in all Triumvirat albums (except the two last ones, were something were terribly wrong with the band) but this one right here.

Mediterranean Tales still have that resemblance with Emerson, Lake and Palmer, but in that album specifically there are clearly other stronger influences, like Mozart, and Wagner, and another classical music composer whose name i cannot recall now.

That becomes very clear in almost every music of the album: on across the waters, the first band epic, most of the music you can clearly identify Mozart, Bach, and other baroque composers, because the music sounds, from the overture to the underture, a rocky version of a chamber music. Eleven Kids is more of a straightforward rock music about a woman that loves to have sex (whoa, i really need one of those) and haves eleven kids (but not with all of these kids D=). E minor 5/9 minor /5 is another incredible music that is basically a experimentation music with synths and organs, although it haves a Emerson, Lake and Palmer flavor at the end. Broken mirror is another music heavily influenced by classical music, of course if a rock touch.

CCVP | 4/5 |
