1 stars Can you tell me why this music's poor? Yes I can.

Sweden's Unifaun have tried to produce a Genesis album rather than their own album! Many, many prog bands through the years have been influenced by Gabriel era and early Collins era Genesis, but most of them-IQ, Marillion, Mr. SO & SO-as examples, found their own voices and wrote great music that has elements and characteristics of Genesis, but are unique to each of them.

Unifaun has produced an album where they have blatantly tried to sound like Genesis. Their website and Myspace page even admit that they are trying to be a continuation of Genesis from the 1972-1980 period. The call themselves a "Genesis Soundscape" band. Unfortunately, they fail badly. They tried so hard to produce, as their Myspace says, "a labour of love to their beloved heroes," that instead we get a cd of boring, uninteresting, and tedious music. Nad Sylvan and Bonamici are clearly talented musicians, but by focusing so hard on sounding like Genesis, rather than being inspired and influenced by them, the music lacks originality and hence is not very interesting.

If you are a fan of Gabriel and early Collins era Genesis, you will find much more interesting and satisfying music from other bands, some are mentioned above.

Not recommended.
