4 stars Third album of Lady Grey Down from 1997, keeping the same level with the predecesor, and I mean solid song writting and top notch musicianship. Haveing a strange cover art with a big title of the album - Fear spelled on entire front cover art and aswell funny band pictures inside the booklet, this neo prog band done it again big time. Again elaborated pieces, quite long, some of them over 10 min, whre simply all the members truly shines on each instrument. Brilliant keyboards arrangements, solig guitar lines, drums sounds better then before, so a great album with a cristal sound. The main members and the ones who done the most hard work on previous album Forces the keyboard player Louis David and the guitarist Juliant Hunt , left the band , for family reasons, this time replaced by another two excellent musicians, respectivly Mark Westworth behind the keyboards and on six strings Steve Anderson. They've done a pretty good work here aswell, almost never knowing that they are new members, they integrated very well in the Grey Lady Down sound. Martin Wilson from vocals department did aagain a great and spectacular vocal arrangemenst, from mellow passages to more rougher ones, this guy kick major ass in his field, one of the perfect voices for neo prog, and above all he is not a copy of Fish, Gabriel like 80% of the singers from this fiels. Unique and talented vocalist. All pieces are very strong , just listen to the excellent Roller coaster, and Finally, superb songwritting with blistering keyboards. I will give another 4 stars for sure, recommended one of the better bands from neo prog zone who are very underrated in my opinion, quite far from another bands in poplarity, and for sure needs a wider recognition because they are very good. One of the most enjoyble bands and without reason very unnoticed.
