3 stars YES plagiarism or not............

Druid does a pretty melodic form of YES like symphonic prog. The music is easy-listening and almost pop at times. I do not find the music particular intricate. It is symphonic prog for the masses. When that is said, I do not think this album is bad. The two opening tracks is good. But it is very noticeable that Druid is copying YES. Although I would says; watering it down. The complexity and intricate melodies of YES is not there. What remains is very pleasing to the ear, but not the brain. I somehow also feels that I have heard most of this music before and by someone else. I cannot put my finger on it, but there is something familiar on this album.

I like this album for the first three listening sessions. After that, this album lost it's interest and I became bored. But I can understand those who claims it is a hidden gem. Maybe it is. But not for me.

Not bad, but I prefer YES and STARCASTLE.

3 stars.
