Is it me or the 'I'll-do-what-I-want-first-album' that caracterized so many progressive rock bands is not a personnal target anymore? You know, the first album that defines your sound and your path as a musician? Where is that now?

Vangough as one quality: they apply themselves. From the art cover to the playing, you can see they want to be noticed. I like the Rob Sowden alike voice and the Linkin Park rapping style, especially in the Manikin Parade song. Like I said, they aim on being noticed. But as what? Another Images and Words attempt? Because if it the case, well bravo, you got it. Again another band wanting to climb the stairs quickly by inspiring themselves of an epic band. Dream Theater worked really hard to polish a personnal sound and a musical trademark; Vangough seems to surf on that work already copied a gazilliion time.

The songs are there; you listen, you make your own opinion.

Some people liked re-heated casserole, see if you do.
