This is my 600 review. This review and album is dedicated to my pal from PA - sinkadotentree for his neverending great reviews, recomandations and suport across the years. I choose Bob Katsionis - Turn of my century from 2002 , because is a special album in my collection and above all a very good one aswell. he is a young musician, both keyboard and guitar player from Greece who bwggins his career in the '90's. This is his first album from 2002. The music is towards progressive metal with blistering key passages, very intelligent arrangements and brilliant song writing. All the album is instrumental, and proves that even today when the instrumental albums are no more a fashion in this kind of music and in metal in general, Katsionis manage to bring to the listner a nearly a masterpiece in this genre. Imagine that you listen to an instrumental Dream Theater with nice moods from mellow to more rougher ones, each instrument shines here, leaving the listner breathless at the end of the album. What worth mentioning is thatt his album is a real solo album of a keyboard player, the keys are the main role here, he has enough space to shove he is among ht ebest in his filed. Bob Katsionis is also known as a very good guitarist, besides his solo work he is a permanent member in tech/extreme bands like Septic Flesh or Nightfall, but aswell in american power metal band Firewind. Turn of my century is a great album to discover and a worthy one all the way for prog metal listners but also for keyboard freaks who can tolerate long and blistering solos both on guitar and keys. One of my fav musicians from this decade who for sure needs attenion, while he is not so well known in prog circles I recommend this album to be checked out because has some very intristing and catchy moments.Young musicians and specialy keyboard players must take a listen to Bob Katsionis, they for sure will learn a lot. 4-4.5, close to masterpiece but not quite there, still a very strong album to investigate.
