4 stars Conception - this norwegian band who were at their peak with this release from 1995 named In your multitude. They released just another album two years after this one and then disbanded. The two of the founding members of Conception and the main song writers Roy Khan gone to Kamelot, the guitarist Tore Ostby gone to Ark and played aswell on the solo album of DC Cooper, the Royal Hunt vocalist then. About this album In your multitude, I saw that many listners from here who reviewed and voted this album said is one of the masterpieces of prog metal, to be honest I don't see how this can be considered an essential album , realy. I mean , to me is a good album dominated by excellent voice of Roy Khan, the musicianship is ok, in places even great , but to me is not a masterpiece for sure, I know at least a dozen better bands from that year - 1995 who sounds playes and has better pieces. To me this album is a cross between polished power metal with some progressive metal leanigs, is not so complex and not so over the top as many considered to be. The riffs, the solos of Tore Ostby are good and well constructed but nothing grounbreaking, the bass is ok, the drums aswell, only the voice of Mr Khan is brilliant here, excellent vocalist. If it weren't Khan voice here, then for sure would be a usual album to my taste for sure. Anyway a pleasent album all the way with nice shifting moods from mid tempo pieces, in fact all have mid tempo, to mellower one whre Khan voice shines like Sanctuary, but aswell on the rest is brilliant. Now the m,ost progressive metal pieces from here is to meA million gods , a track whre bass and drums are in front most of the time but aswell the rest of the musicians did a great job. In the end a worthy album for sure, but nothing over the top for me, 3.5 rounded to 4, just because Khan voice is outstanding, one of the most distictive voice in prog metal for sure. A good towards great but nothing close to a masterpiece. Great cover art by the way.
