4 stars 70's Prog rebirth

I heard about these guys on Amazon, based on a recommendation from purchases. I checked out the sound samples provided and was intrigued. So I picked up the CD.

Love it! I normally am not a fan of the spacey, or mellow Prog, but material on this release is great. I was hearing elements of so many early Prog bands, especially Yes, Camel, and Genesis. But is is not simply copycat old Prog. They introduce some post rock elements as well.

The very unexpected highlight of the album for me was the guitar solo work in the middle of Salvo. Guitarist Johannes Luley must be a student of Steve Howe because I found myself thinking how perfectly it would be a Yes song. I find the vocalist's style to fit the band nicely as well.

This is a worthy CD to pick up, although I don't believe it to be a must have. I do look forward to a future release from these guys who also have a link to ProgArchives on their webpage, so you know they are totally into the genre.

4/5 stars
