3 stars 3.5 stars for sure

Picklelegaz this dutch neo prog band with strange name is quite unknown in prog circles, no wonder because they formed in 1988, the first album came after more then 10 years in 1999 and the follow up afer 13 years in 2012, so a career with 25 years and only 2 studio albums, but the music offered is among the most intresting and dense neo prog someone will ever hear, even the influences are obvious. I've review some years ago their second offer and I was more then pleased, now is time for the debut from 1999 named In progress. The influences are obvious from Marillion fame (their best period, the '80s), from IQ, Pendragon and others, both in instrumental sections and in vocal department. This album is quite intresting, at least for me, the opening track Perfect Lie clocking around 11 min is absolutly kick ass, the best from here and among the best neo prog tunes I've heared, the dramatic passages are well written and performed aswell in Marillion style. The vocal lines, the keyboards, guitars are top notch, very solid tune. . All in all, this is great, and for that reason I can't give less then 3-3.5 stars, I like a lot what I've heared and definetly among the most intresting neo prog albums I know, both albums released by this band are worth investigated, this is solid neo prog, widely unknown to larger public, and is a shame.
