1 stars Galahad is one of the reasons I developed a strong dislike for the neo-prog sound. Tinny drums, hollow synths, unpleasant jarring guitar leads and a vocalist who frequently sounds like he's trying to rip off Fish aren't my cup of tea. If you're one of those who enjoys post- Fish Marillion and Pendragon, you might derive some joy from Galahad, but I don't enjoy this album which to me sounds more dated than most of the 60s recording I own.

There's a good church organ solo towards the end of Richelieus Prayer, there are some brief semi-decent synth moments in Face To The Sun and Chamber Of Horrors, the opening of Aquaba is ok and Motherland is at least an attempt to add some life to this album. But the truth is that most of Nothing Is Written bored me to tears, and I actually think it's the worst album I've ever heard by a band that I consider to be prog.

To be fair, this is Galahad's first album (incidentally my CD has two additional tracks in Legacy and There Must Be A Way) and I heard the group got better, but I'm not going to bother to investigate any further. ... 12% on the MPV scale
