2 stars TRESPASS are a three piece band from Isreal (keyboards, bass & drums) who are greatly influenced by ELP. A variety of keyboards dominates this recording. Vocals are in English but after reading the lyrics I think that was a mistake. They need to get someone who can write a song lets put it that way. I guess my dislike for ELP (except for their debut) is showing here, but man I do not like this album.

"Creatures Of The Night" is uptempo with keyboards galore as the drums pound. The synths end up all over this bringing to mind STYX. "In Haze Of Time" is better because they slow it down. Reserved vocals and lots of keyboards. Vocals do get passionate later. "Gate 15" is uptempo and kind of jazzy.

"City Lights" has cringe-worthy lyrics and is uptempo. They slow it down again on "Orpheus Suite" with a variety of keyboards in play. "Troya" is uptempo with some guitar in it. "The Mad House Blues" is one of those silly ELP-like songs that I detest. Lots of piano.

Just my taste in music I know but I find this to be pompous at best.
