3 stars By mid 90's the progressive metal scene was becoming larger and larger, a new prog sound was on its way.LEMUR VOICE were another band that tried to earn some fame and space in the prog metal map.In 1996 the band from the Netherlands managed to released their debut album entitled ''Insights''.

Actually this is a really strong debut.It wouldn't be an excess if I called them a DREAM THEATER clone.But the musicianship is very decent,the atmosphere of the album is really in prog fields and the songs are well arranged.Unfortunately,lacking in originality,the band plays in a similar style like DREAM THEATER as we know them through albums like ''Awake'' or ''Images and words''.A more personal style would raise the musical price of this album really high.I also recognize some influences from Dutch fellows ELEGY in the power metal moments of the band.The epic track of this work ''Alone'' contains also hints from SIEGES EVEN or SOUL CAGES in the atmospheric breaks,nice addition.The vocals of Gregoor Van Der Loo are also decent without being something spectacular.

Don't expect something grounbreaking or oringinal by buying this album.However the musicianship is excellent and searching for this CD worths the cost.If you are looking for progressive metal of the DREAM THEATER school of prog,this one fits well in your desires.Recommended!
