3 stars Ars Nova is often Accussed of being an ELP clone band. Even though Ars Novaīs most significant influence clearly is ELP I think I hear other influences too that help Ars Nova to shape their own sound.

The music is heavily rooted in the seventies symphonic scene, even though it is mostly more modern sounding keyboards being used. UK is abigg influence in the keyboard sound department. The album is instrumental and the themes played by the keybord are mainly classical inspired. Thus the ELP clone rumours.

The musicians are competent and of course, as this is heavily dominated by keyboard, the keyboardist Keiko Kumagai stands out in the soundscape as he is the most spectacular one. The rythm section is also very good though.

I enjoy the album very much even though itīs not the kind of music I will listen to every day. 3 stars from me to Fear & Anxiety.

UMUR | 3/5 |
