4 stars Soul Enema is one of the most promising bands from progressive rock genre in last decade. They release so far two albums, one in 2010 and the second is coming after almost 7 seven years in 2017 Of clans and clones and clowns , now this is for sure a total winner as the debut, at least to me in top 5 I've heared so far from this year.

I was very pleasent surprise about this album, the music is very innovativ and intelligent, quite original, a hard thing to find on most of the new and young bands from this genre. Combining elements from symphonic prog zone with blistering keybords, with some eastern infuse folk arrangements to even progressive metal parts, and on top of that a solid voice coming from now diffrent female voice as on debut Noa Gruman. Brilliant ideas , great musicianship makes from this album a total winner, every piece is well developed, complex structures, their is enough room to show that Soul Enema mean bussines in this field. Very captivating keybords arrangements, who together with the guitar make a real treasure this album to listen and to have in the end in any collection. Nice electric atmosphere, from avan to prog metal, they have it all in their sleeve, and is intredting that they combine elements from diffrent genre with an amazing ease and very natural, the music is not forced. The first 3 tracks are killer, specially the opening Amon Ra really smokes, the guitar and keyboards are exemplary, aswell the voice. The rest of the pieces are aswell great. Some respected invited guests present among others famous Arjen Lucassen on track 13 and Yossi Sassi ex Orphaned Land who done a great job

It's pretty said that this band doesn't get the full appreciation world wide , they are among the most original bands around in prog field. for me a solid 4 stars , Recommended both albums has same level, and I mean high level. Nice intriguing art work, CD digipak format.
