3 stars What I am generally looking for in a group's work is Originality and if not at least some personality and inspiration and also some honesty. I can't say I found those character traits while listening to Flame Dream's first two albums. This was recommended as "the best thing out of Switzerland " but not quite. Circus ans Island are much better and more inventive as well as personnal. FD cannot manage to hide its Yes influences (like some of the bands from mid to late 70's such as Starcastle and Druid) but maybe slightly better assimilated. But we are not far from a clone bands . In the third track Volcano , that had started out very well , they can't resist pulling some T Banks KB lines from Cinema Show , a wink or plain lack of inventivity? To ask the question is already answering it. Too bad, because these guys could've bettered their yes influences especially that the singer is also a flautist and a saxman.
