4 stars A highly intriguing debut album by German act Frequency Drift.

For starters, this is a science fiction-themed concept album; so fans of those can hit the net and order right away. For those more concerned with musical contents; we're served a mostly mellow and melancholic creation on this production; where carefully crafted keyboard textures in the form of piano and what sounds very much like a harpsichord are central elements. Acoustic guitar licks and melodic bass lines flesh out the songs; and drawn out subdued guitar riffs are utilized alongside floating and often majestic synth layers to add punch and dramatics to the tunes; as well as atmospheric guitar soloing from the Neo progressive school and keyboard soloing.

The main asset on this release are the vocals though, Katja Hübner has a powerful, rich voice and a fine emotional delivery; and mixed with well crafted instrumental performance and skilled mix and production this result in strong moods; enhanced by some clever complex instrumental explorations and a few unexpected twists in the songwriting department.

A release that should be very much of interest to fans of Neo Progressive rock as well as those who like their progressive rock a bit on the soft and atmospheric side in general.
