3 stars A German band who combines the Canterbury Scene (mostly Caravan) with symphonic prog (mostly Genesis and Yes) with some fusion/jazz, pop (The Beatles) and a lot of Neo- Prog (IQ).

The music is based around synths and hammond organ. In addition, you also have some guitars. The latter ones is very much Neo-Prog tuned. Frost* debut album springs to mind. The hammond organ is well used and adds another dimension to the sound. Lyrics wise, I do not think the band does take them selves too seriously. Check the song titles....

The first track is very good. The full album then tails of. The problem is the lack of orginality. Besides of the lyrics, this band does not do particular original music. It is a mishmash of everything. Some riff and some pieces from here and there. It becomes a bit annoying after a while. Besides of that; this is a good album well worth checking out.

3.25 stars
