4 stars Another eclectic showcase from the Marek Arnold musical factory based in Germany. And at the time he was just getting started. RetroTox mixes vintage hard rock (bordering on metal at times) with classic prog, soft rock, funk, fusion, classical pretensions, vocal mannerisms and even rap. And the feeling I get from this particular album is of musicians having lots of fun doing it. The star of the show is Marek Arnold with his very varied synth sounds, but Uwe Reinholz also serves up some delicious licks, and bass is always featured prominently in their music. Family bands to check out are Seven Steps to the Green Door, Flaming Row, Cyril, and even more.
