2 stars One thing's being inspired by a band. Another thing - and sadly the most common in contemporary prog - is not to be able to evolve from its references. Freehand is no exception, whose heart comes and goes between King Crimson's heavy guitar signature ("Kinetic Eggs" and "Spacehounds") and masturbating fusion of the worst kind (the other tracks on the album). Don't get me wrong ; it's well executed, and "Kinetic Eggs", for instance, has its merits. But without consequences... Freehand's getting even worse by shamelessly covering KC's "The Sheltering Sky" on "Mirkwood". So, yes, it's damn cool to be in a band. But sometimes, musicians should not forget to wonder why they play.
