3 stars A Night For Baku is a bit less then the albums around it. The style doesn't deviate much from their usual Crimson meets fusion melange but the blood seems to run a bit thinner through this one.

Dream Portal is a slow piece that fails to build up to an interesting atmosphere, the melodies are a bit too obvious and repetitious for that. Hungry Ghost is better. The dark mellotron over heavy bass brings Anekdoten's Vemod to mind. Or should I say Magma? As Da Futura is an obvious influence. They dive into a funky Ozrician groove that serves to contrast with the threatening Magma parts. It doesn't work all too well and the jam is slightly predictable.

And so it goes on, while generally enjoyable, the album is just too unremarkable. It serves as a good touchstone for the 3-star rating though.

Bonnek | 3/5 |
