5 stars 2nd release? A Masterpiece too....

Anekdoten release their second full-length album, ''Nucleus''...The band is in an extremely productive period and continues to compose and perform great Progressive Rock music.

King Crimson's influences are always present. The band, after their masterpiece debut, develops better its own character. Nicklas' and Jan's guitar and bass performing are the driving axle of this band, as they compose the most of the tracks and sing the most of the vocals. This wisely arranged guitar/bass duo infuses the whole project. Anna's cello and mellotron, dress the album with such an amazing atmosphere. Her vocals are marvelous, too. This girl is one of the essential elements of this band and this is well noticed and appreciated, as she contributes to the tracks' composition, too. Helena's violin presents another magical part of ''Nucleus''. Peter's drums' and percussion's playing is always potential and power, giving the album a strong character, as he makes an extended use of the cymbals and the tambure.

Everything seems to be perfect here, as well as the album's production. King Crimson's sound is also part of the band's sound, and despite the presence of many instruments' and vocals' parts, the production appears to be excellent. Anekdoten release their 2nd masterpiece and continue to make part of the bands that are so mature and tallented. Perfect work....

In my opinion, the first 3 albums of Anekdoten are Masterpieces, analyzing them from any side or prospective. I am sure that everyone will find them as some of the most momumental releases of the 90's..5 stars to this album, too.
