From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars I typically don't listen to music on the radio much these days because there isn't a whole lot that I either haven't heard before or that I find all that interesting (or good). Most of the rock you hear on the radio is either classic rock or modern mainstream rock. Most of the latter these days is formulaic and boring to my ears. However, occasionally it is done right. The debut album by Blind Ego is an example of modern rock being done right. To be honest I don't hear a whole lot of prog or prog influenced music on here (although at times there are mild Pink Floyd or David Gilmour elements) but instead melodic hard rock of the more modern mainstream variety. I would be hard pressed to call this nu metal though or even alternative or post grunge rock and it doesn't really sound like any one band in particular.

There are ten tracks on this disc and one that appears to be a bonus track called "artist manque." The best and possibly most progressive is the tenth track "forbidden to remain" which clocks in at 10:02. Recommended to those who don't mind a more mainstream hard rock approach. Those who are RPWL completionists might also want to check it out since this is after all the side project of RPWL guitarist Kalle Wallner. A solid three star release.
