5 stars What defines the "rock" portion of "prog rock"? Is it the core instrumentation of guitar, bass, drums and keyboards? If so, that is the only link to "rock" on Epilog, the masterpiece by Anglagard. This album comes closer to creating the electric rock band equivalent of 20th century orchestral chamber music than Fripp, Bruford, Wetton & Cross ever achieved with King Crimson in the seventies.

Detractors may not like the complete lack of traditional rock forms in this music, but that's not the point. Listen to Bartok, Stravinsky, or any of the great 20th century masters, and you will hear a lot of what is going on in this album. It's not for the faint of heart, as it can be powerful, ferocious, mesmerizing, and delicate, all at the same time.

Does it sound like I'm fawning over this album? It should! I love it!

Evolver | 5/5 |
