2 stars You've heard the story before: a group of continental Europeans, overly nostalgic for that Anglo-American psychedelic and hard rock sound of the late 60's through early 70's, form a band and relentlessly pursue that highest form of flattery that is imitation. And boy do Siena Root excel at such flattery. On The Secret of Our Time, Siena have crafted an album nearly indifferentiable from Deep Purple's In Rock save for having swapped the rock god shrills of Ian Gillian for a female lead.

The artistic and entertainment value of successfully replicating something so nostalgic is not lost on me. I'm certain that fans of Siena of Root who have had the privilege of seeing their live shows or various equipment and production afficionados can afford themselves more affection towards this record. But for the rest of us who, despite holding no small amount of affection for that time period in music, would like to see music introduce novelty and progression, this record has little to offer.
