4 stars This album sounds like a breath of fresh air. Perhaps a great description would be if Michael Brook(world guitarist/David Sylvian collaborator) were to let loose in the studio and write songs with Neil Schon and a few members from the '80s version of Talk Talk. Toss in some of The Shadows(yes, that's right), Tears For Fears, Comsat Angels and Fixx along with Police and '80s Rush. In short, Proteo take the approach of the more progressive New Wave bands in the '80s and strip it down without the cheesy synth adding Ozric-like bubbles and colourings. Highlights include the varied _Eternity_ which sounds like Talk Talk meets Michael Brook and Carlos Santana/Sonny Sharrock in guitar tone. _Echoes Mankind_ is another highlight. The Fixx and Porcupine Tree meets Sonny Sharrock in guitar tone and Mel Collins saxophone? Something like that. You be the judge. Don't expect any crazy solos here, but you will get some excellent songwriting. Amazing melodic pop prog. from 2009. Recommended.
