Heart of the Matter
3 stars The opener sounds maybe too overly pop to be considered a strong start, but still, it has a nice piano interlude and good vocals (let alone the bass playing). "Silent Revolution" gains in atmosphere, incorporating a jazzy vibe in the rhythm section and the guitar. In "Cathedral Of Love" the band shifts down a gear, when (to be honest) it should have went up. Vocals are still fine, nevertheless. "21st Century" starts with a promising acoustic guitar strumming, but the vocal melody is too generic to increase the amperimeter's reading, so, still flatlining, basically. And the show goes on, with some good ideas and melodies, but never fulfilling the White-Squire promise.

Good if coming from a generic band, poor in the shadow of giants.

Heart of the Matter | 3/5 |
