3 stars Well, this new CD from the swiss band Metamorphosis comes with some improvement over their last. This time they added some heavier guitars to the groupīs usual strongly Pink Flooyd influenced symphonic sound. But the first song is a bit misleading, I should say. The rest of the CD is pretty much like their previous ones. It is another concept album, very well done and played. Also as usual, mastermind Jean Pierre-Schenk does all the vocals, keyboards, drums and even īvirtualī bass (I guess he meant he used the bass notes on the keyboard for that).

Production is very good. The guitar solos are the highlight, very Gilmour-like, of course. The CD flows evenly. Nothing to write home about it, but good anyway. If you like PF around the time of The Wall and A Momentary Lapse Of Reason go for it. J P Schenke is a very talented guy, but he still has to come with a more personal sound if he is hoping this band will reach a higher level. Certainly they have the right influences and the chops. But songwriting-wise they still need to grow past their obvious idols nad do something their own. Dark is a nice CD, but not really essential. 3 stars.
