3 stars Aztec Jade second release from 2000 named Paradise lost is a compilation, because it contains the first 2 release of the band Modern prophet and first studio album Frame mind, but aswell has a bonus track unreleased befor named Regatta Fugue part 1. If I said alreeady what is going one with Moder prophet on previous review I will describe briefly their first studio album Frame mind. The sound and manner of composing grows clearly in better, better sound and solid compositions, but moderated complex progressive metal. All pieces are around 5 min, so not realy very elaborated , but strong anyway. Again the voice of Onzug is on top combined with some very fine guitar parts, makes from this first album a pleasent album all the way. All tracks has same level, with a plus on Nosferatu, simply amazing piece, such beautiful and smotth guitar I quite never heared on aprog metal band lately, more acustic combined with some rougher moments, but truly amazing, the best pieces from here for sure and one of their better ones. So a good album, nothing realy impressive, again same prog metal a la DT melted with some more softer moments, something between Saga and DT. I will give 3 stars for Frame mind album. And for the both albums aswell 3 stars, keeping i mind that this is not a studio album, is a compilation of first 2 releases of the band in one album. I remain to their last album and their swansong aswell Concrete eden to be their most acomplished album from their catalogue.
