From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

2 stars The North American band - PHREEWORLD - in his/v second studio albun "Crossing the Sound", presents influences of bands as YES, PINK FLOYD, GENESIS, CSN&YOUNG, BEATLES & ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, bring with this folk/space/symphonic and a small neo-prog portion. However such "raw material" doesn't get to produce (except for some few and well-known moments) a music that got my attention. In fact, most of the tracks sounded to me as something already heard previously without any increment that resembles an interesting new approach of the influences mentioned above! The "few and well-known moments the one that I referred are me due to Track 1 "Freeworld" with a cleary influence of YES & ALAN PARSONS PROJECT (the first for the keyboards and guitars and the second for the vocal ones) the track 5 "Solar Spectra" (where a guitar in Steve Hackett's style, commands the sound). As weak points, I would point the track 2 "CHINA" with a repetitive rhythm in the enttire track and The track 6 "Gates Walk" , wich begins with the style of Crosby,Stills, Nash & Young and she becomes PinkFloyd soon after, in the which I think this combination was made in a very abrupt way!!! For these reasons my rate is 2 stars.
