4 stars The saying is "third time lucky", well BIGELF's third album is a perfect example, what a thrilling experience! Their music is based upon the heavy sound of BLACK SABBATH featuring fat guitar-riffs, a leaden rhythm-section and OSBOURNE-like vocals. Other obvious influences are The BEATLES (especially John Lennon), PINK FLOYD (Gilmourian slide guitar) and KING CRIMSON (floods of violin-Mellotron). The music is dynamic and alternating, from ballads to heavy rock with a lot of progressive tendencies like the integration of keyboards (Mellotron, Hammond organ, piano and synthesizers), changing climates, varied tempos and spectacular breaks. The distinctive vocals are powerful and have often a cynical undertone. BIGELF's evolution is stunning, I'm more pleased with their progressive approach than the predictable and boring prog (metal) from a lot of known current bands. If you are up to heavy and compelling progrock, BIGELF is yours!
