3 stars Pompeii is, sadly, the last Triumvirat album, if you count only the prog albums, and it has a horrible sad atmosphere. Not the musics or the concept, but the whole downhill way to popish music the band went after this album.

Pompeii is, to me, a respectable last effort to make a good quality prog album, having only failing by having so many pop in it. Not that i don't like pop, its just that, when you get a prog band album you expect to hear prog and not pop. However this album is still more proggy than old loves die hard, have great musics and a nice concept. Because of the popier approach, the music is more direct and straightforward than on other albums, where the band experimented a lot and used a lot of music techniques and virtuoso (on keyboards).

Here is also noticeable the greater amount of lyrics and is also noticeable the increase poetry skills of Jürgen Fritz, because the lyrics are better written and sound better to the ear.

A great last effort of a great band. Rest In Peace Triumvirat

CCVP | 3/5 |
