3 stars I was ready to kill Egdon Heath and all the confusion about their style and manly their vocalist (gosh! this is really a problem for this band)... I did follow the suggestion from other fans in order to avoid their first album In the City then I go directly to their best rated release Him, The Snake And I and I found a truly progressive band (not neo in any way) with a little drawback: the lead singer sung all the time in the verge of be out of tune.

Listening this mix of styles which is The Killing Silence ranging from pop/neoprog tunes like Tell Me to really catching a bit avant-garde like The Killing Silence I did never get really comfortable with what I was listening, in fact, the singer, once again in the boundaries of be out of tune, have me all the time asking myself if this new member have really fit into the band. Anyway the is well done by good musicians, including great keyboards part, cut and changes a-la Genesis and good sound and guitars a la Marillion.

I was.. I was saying... until Egdon Heath throw me in the face the awesome prog ballad entitled T.T.C... It have to be known that I have a weakness for neo-progressive ballads let's say that it's the only reason why I listen bands like Marillion, Pendragon, IQ and specially Jadis. Neo-progressive style provide me sweet and lovely ballads without complications

T.T.C. from the first chord drive nuts... gees! another great ballad to include in my assortment... Mr. Jens van der Stempel sing all the song in tune with exquisite complicity with female voices... grandious and emotive like it should be a prog ballad with the synthesized violins sending chills in my arms. Later they should bring me Message to complete the time spent in this album... once again beautiful female voices. This two songs deserve to buy this album.... an get accustomed to the singer.
