3 stars (3,5 stars) -In spite of presenting in his first studio disk "Ceiwen", a quite approximate musical conception of "Tardigrade", which deserving the maximum note from me , a mixture among the sound of "modern" bands, such like THE FLOWER KING'S & SPOCK'S BEARD, with influences of monsters of the prog of the 70's such like YES, GENESIS and EMERSON LAKE & PALMER, this work of SIMON SAYS if no disappoint in the sense of the musical quality, doesn't present the same impact of that. I believe that such fact is due the difference in the line-up of the band, mainly in what refers an absence of exclusive keyboard player (function carried out by bass player Stefan Renström), what limits the creativity. However I want to emphasize that the disk presents excellent musical moments ( same that when seeing me the i GENESIS influences are more pronounced in this disk than in "Tardigrade") and that I believe, sincerely that if you liked "Tardigrade" should appreciate "Ceiwen." My highlights are to the tracks 3 "Bedtime Story", 6 "B.A.J.S.Radio" and 7 "Kadazan." My rate is 3 stars.
