3 stars Well if you 're not interested in such "progressive rock genre" only, appreciating some other music features closer to Peter Gabriel or the modern music by Porcupine Tree or Smashing Pumpkins, probably the present latest issue from RPWL is well worth checking out...otherwise if you're not into this style too much (sometimes resembling the mood by Gilmour in the recent production by Pink Floyd), you could stand listening for a moment to this diverse CD and find interesting elements within,anyway!!Of course the reference to Pink Floyd and Genesis of the middle period is obvious (the last period with Hackett,except on the track "Roses" which seems to be a song by Genesis with Ray Wilson, being sung by Wilson himself!!), but they are not a cover band of Pink Floyd and the song "Sleep" confirms my opinion:that is the band Genesis is a pure reference for their romantic style and nothing fact while RPWL are still trying to find a personal way,by considering above all their dreamy music passages as well as their powerful and melodic moments,the other German bands involved into such 70's rock music are not so much inspiring (I think especially of High Wheel ,being prisoners of a certain clichè, that is a 70's stereotype of the psichedelic/progressive music genre) .Ok it's a question of tastes and you could have already expressed a completely different opinion in comparison to my point of view...interesting CD but not essential for me!!
