4 stars Pretty neat debut effort from this German trio; lacking in true originality perhaps but with lots of charm.

This effort is more or less a tribute to the various musical heroes of the members it seems. The album has been divided into three parts, each highlighting a particular aspect of influences. The first of these, "Nursed by Giants", first and foremost plays out influences from Genesis and Gentle Giant. The following sequence, "Canterbury Souls", pays tribute to the so-called Canterbury tradition in British progressive rock. The final part of this venture is called "From Liverpool to Outer Space", and mainly deals with Beatles-inspired efforts.

The band wear their influences firmly on their sleeves, and doesn't try to create something stunningly unique. They explore selected musical aspects of the various bands they like and admire with a great deal of charm, and does a very good job in doing just that. With better vocal performances this would have been a truly great effort - as it is it's still above average, and a venture which should please fans of vintage progressive rock in the British tradition.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
