3 stars Six years after the release of their debut CD "Floating Tangibility" (1994) on the Cyclops label, Primitive Instinct are back with a new album named "Belief". PRIMITIVE INSTINCT's music has much in common with other bands on the Cyclops label: CROSS, MOSTLY AUTUMN, PINEAPPLE THIEF and TRANSCIENCE, but also MANIC STREET PREACHERS, MARILLION, PENDRAGON and The URBANE. They're mixing alternative straightforward rock, folk, pop and neo-progressive rock, and the melodies are often very catchy. Some tracks are really good like "Break On Through" and "All That I Need" while some is quite boring. Unfortunately the cover artwork isn't that appealing, and I don't think that I should've got interested if I had seen it in a record store. But after hearing it I know that the boring artwork hides a well-played album with lots of qualities. And although the album is self-produced it has a decent sound. Forget about a few songs and left is an album that is definitely worth checking out!
