4 stars Blend of subgenres

I'm very pleased to review a bulgarian band again - that's Travelhouse! Travelhouse originating from the beginning of the century Mind Mapping is their first full length album. Innovative effort, in my opinion! If you looking for variety that's you album. It's intricate blend of electronica (probably the most included subgenre), progressive metal, jazz fusion, neo-progressive, eclectic elements and bulgarian national folklore themes. Moreover, I find FSB infulence (Kalin will tell me, whether I'm wrong;).

Another impression makes the accurate titles of the songs. Each song provokes its title. You can feel the energy of each song and it coincide with the title. There are connection between composition and name. If we talk about the songs, my favourite by far is Black Coffee Mornings . It's precise and well structured and balanced. Other favourites: More Magic from Oz, the end of Dark Gentleman, and the Neutron suite as whole. Least favourites: A Guru in Love and Clouds. There aren't honestly weak songs all around the album. Something I don't like are some sleepy tunes and some heavy slow guitars, which are not on the right place, in my opinion!

As a conclusion: pleasant debut and waiting for more. 3,5 stars and of course rounded up ;)
