4 stars The second album from Trespass is a slight break from their debut album. Gone are the jazz/fusion elements. The replacement are a far more baroque feel. Trespass has moved sideways in the direction of Trace and ELP, with some Genesis and IQ influences too. But they still maintain their own style.

The very impressive keyboardist Gil Stein shows off big time with his fluent style. He is alpha & omega in their sound. The tasty flutes and the other instruments just adds texture to his keyboards. Most songs are based in classical music with some medieval and rennaissance music added. Baroque music, to be precise. On the top of this, there is some elements of neo-prog too. This in the meaning of the up to date sound this album has. The album feels like 2006 and not like 1970. Which is good in cases like this piece of music, in my view.

I tend to look at albums like this as one piece of music instead of just an album of songs. In this respect, this album is both playful and epic at the same time. There are alot of excellent parts. The song Ripples is one of them with the very strong baroque music part running through it. The vocals are not too bad either and more than hints about Genesis. The Vivaldi tribute is excellent too. I am surprised about the choice of musical hero. Mozart is a much more obvious choice. Yes, I can add him to the obvious influences on this album. Trespass is the symphonic prog rock scene answer to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

My conclusion is that this is a very delightful album and I am very much hoping that Trespass will release more albums. So far, two excellent albums. Can I get some more, please ?
