Prog Reviewer
2 stars I have read that each album released from this Dutch band was different from one another. Well, to my opinion; there are all alike. It holds the same sort of neo-prog music based on keys and featuring average vocals.

Nothing wrong here but nothing great either. An upbeat instrumental to open the album, a decent neo-prog tune as follow-up ("Gringo"), a classic "Witness" which opens like a "Genesis" song while they were four, but that quite soon is diverted into poor territories.

I'm afraid that his album doesn't go in the good direction with "Mother's Dream": definitely not a nice dream: that's how I feel when listening to this heavy song. With some sort of a bolero like intro. The Oriental mood is not too bad, although the whole is also on the heavy edge.

As usual, some titles do represent quite well the content of a song. You can add "Slightly In Despair" to these. Do I need to add anything?

"Him, The Snake and I" is not my cup of tea for sure. There are very few moments of truly great (good) music available on this album. Easy listening neo-prog is the style. Two stars is my rating.
