3 stars Brother Ape is a fine combo featuring four talented as well as skilled musicians from Scandinavia. Stefan Damicolas (vocals, guitars), who is writing most of the material, Gunnar Maxén (bass, keyboards, vocals) and Max Bergman (drums, percussion). Peter Dahlstrom (vocals, bass, keyboards) left after the first album, but the creativity, smooth ambiences, rhythmic percussions, nice lyrics remained... If you liked "Shangri-La" (2006), you won't be deceived. If you don't know the band yet, forget they come from Sweden, for Brother Ape is closer to the Beatles, Kayak than Landberk, Anekdoten. This is refined but happy music. This is more melodic than labyrinthine. Catchy tunes, excellent vocals and arrangements. A good introduction to prog finally.
