2 stars What a piece of.......

I am far outside my comfort zone with this album. It says symphonic prog on the tin, but the contents is a kind of quirky rock of some sort. OK, maybe it is symphonic prog, but not the kind of symphonic prog I recognice. I guess a simplified version of GENTLE GIANT with some heavy guitars and emotional overkill and pathos fits the description here. The music is largely devoid of good melodies and ideas. It is running empty. The Moog is nice, but that's all. I have given this album plenty of time and it has yet to sink in. My place on this planet is limited. I do not want to spend it on an album like this. The only saving grace here is the opening track The Symphonic Rock Orchestra which is an OK track with grandious Moog and guitars. The rest of the album is in the abysmal league of rock. Nuff said.
