Neo Prog Team
2 stars Another project created by prog rock mastermind Clive Nolan,along with fellow SHADOWLAND guitarist Karl Groom and Neo-Prog diva Tracy Hitchings.Initially STRANGERS ON A TRAIN would work on a three-album trilogy,the first one being ''The key part I:the prophecy'' ,released back in 1990.

No less or more this a personal effort of Clive Nolan ,who composed and arranged the whole work,with his piano and keyboards over-dominating the compositions.Groom and Hitchings seem more like the appropriate additional parts in Nolan's arrangements rather than equal collaborators.The sound recalls more to a soundtrack of a film with a light new-age feeling,but it features also lots of symphonic and grandiose piano parts with obvious Classical references.It's Hitchings' voice,which sometimes brings memories from the Neo Prog scene to the surface ,especially in some ballad-like tracks,while Groom's presence is even more distinctive in a few slow solos and limited bass lines.Additionally,the total absence of drums makes this effort too minimalistic for the average prog-head so beware...only recommended to lovers of Cinematic Music ,who will propably like this one...all others please try some samples first.
