2 stars Do you know that that disk type that when begins to play gives the clear impression that it is an excellent work, and what when finish you ask " what happened in the midlle tracks of the albun? ".This is the case of the sef-titled albun of the German band "SCARAMOUCHE." First Track "Cloud in The Sky" begins with a riff where the trio bass/guitar/drums leaves amazed even the listener most cautious, such the originality of the same, when sundenly emerge a theme led by the keyboards (hammond-organ & piano-electric) and following by strident vocals that in certain moments it receives the refined aid of VOCCODER and the track proceeds with force and a progressive atmosphere in the line of YES, GENESIS and something of the musicality of QUEEN. Already starting from the second track the quality of the music decrease almost declines to the point of transforming something that had a beginning that overpowering, for something repetitive, nor a little innovative and in a style that is not exactly that to call progressive. Only in the last track and that the band retakes the creativity and the shine of the initial track For that reason, in spite of two mentioned excellent Tracks, my rate isonly 2 Stars.
