3 stars I have been reviewing some other subgenre albums lately but I started to miss my warm cradle that's called neo prog; so therefore time to return. And what better place to come back with than this (so far) flash-in-the-pan album by Pilgrym: Pilgrimage. By listening to this one I know what I've been missing. Simply a very fine little album with far from groundbreaking material but oh so wonderful !

First two songs bring me immediately in the great mood the band wants to get their audience in. Stunning melodies executed in a terrific way. Well, ok, let's not get carried away too much. Like I said, it's not groundbreaking and it really sounds like what neo sounds like for decades. Also next few tracks sound very harmonic and accessible and I can only conclude this album is a very fine listening for almost an hour. Highlight is the added live song Reborn with some excellent guitar leaving the listener enchanted.

Passages like that once again tempt me to give this album four stars. But after some long contemplation I have to admit that this album isn't really an excellent addition to ANY prog rock collection, just to neo fans. And even I have to conclude I've heard more impressive stuff in this subgenre. So I'll leave it at three but strongly rounded down (3,4). Once again the half star possibility would have been a welcome outcome here !
