3 stars ILUVATAR's story goes back in 1983 in Maryland,USA with the formation of the progressive rock cover band ''Sojourn''.While the years passed by,''Sojourn'' were turning from covering famous songs to composing their own material.In 1992 they were renamed to ILUVATAR and thus,begun an intense live activityfor the group.In 1993 ILUVATAR released their eponymous first album,which was a really hot-seller for their label,Kinesis.The sound of ILUVATAR is split between the 70's soft symphonic prog rock and the 80's accessible British prog rock and they sound actually like a cross between GENESIS and bands like IQ or PENDRAGON.All tracks are well-arranged and performed,covered with beautiful,atmospheric keyboards and nice guitar melodies,while Glenn McLaughlin's voice seems like a mix between Peter Nicholls of IQ and Phil Collins.This is very nice and easy-listening prog rock,based on great melodies,symphonic delicacy and sensitive vocals,recommended for all lovers of soft-symphonic progressive rock.
