From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars I discovered Sieges Even with "The Art of...". In my oppinion SE were the best example of modern Progressive Rock because they were in their own league, because "they sound like SE and SE only". The were unique due to the complexity of their music (regarding the brothers' rhythm section) and the distinctive melody of the duet guitar/voice. I don't know about the first part but the second one still breathes in this release. I agree with the previous review, Sieges Even are still alive, sort of. Arno Menses and Markus Steffen continue to paint the sky with their amazing colors. Be prepared to still have whatever trips SE used to take you with. As for the other musicians are up to the task. Surely none can expect to have the quality and excellency of Holzwarth brothers and the good thing is that they didn't try to compete that. They moved in slightly different directions in order to offer their ideas to the project. This is fine with me and it explains the "sort of" above. So this is a very good and sincere release. Taking into account the SE history this must be placed in this years best releases. I think that I will keep giving 5 stars to these guys whatever they do. And if things go well and in the future they will give us a new release, I promise that I will stop doing all these SE references :)
