4 stars A progressive cafeteria.

Just like your high school cafeteria, Discordia is offering something for everyone...but don't ask for large portions.

What I mean is: that album has lots and lots of stuff in tiny quantities, so they're changing styles quite often in Utopia Perfection (sometimes in the same song!). And that's the spirit of progressive rock, right? If it's right, this album is some of most progressive material I've heard since...well...ever I think.

Take a song like Foreseen for example: a blend of Norweigan Folk, Anekdoten prog and Gentle Giant (Glass House period) that tooked me a lot of repeating to finally appreciate. I mean, the songs are very elaborated, sometimes vocally silly and the whole plot is often hard to grab. Overall, they kinda target the foggy side of Scandinavian music, but with a major headache due to severe efforts of concentration.

A record that will definitely test your degree of patience and that will answer THE question: 'Are you really open minded?'

Probably a winner for 'Blacksheep of 2007'.
