3 stars AD INFINITUM "Ad Infinitum" is a quite appropriate name for this album, because, in my opinion, it is an unequivocal demonstration of the big (and permanent) influence that will always go exert bands as YES, GENESIS, E L & P... on any other band that intends to relive the progressive sound of the seventies (especially the symphonic prog style ). Still like this I don't consider this a work without creativity because, in spite of that "giant " influence, the disk in subject cannot be considered a cheap copy , because in very few moments I could feel some tendency of doing a "new reading " of some theme or consecrated musical passage of some bands that made the history of that style in the 70"s. One of those few moments are in the Track 3 "Waterline" where about 4:30 min a keyboard passage really reminds Tony Banks's style (something that lasts around 3 min, other moment appears in Track 9 ".Neither Here Nor There" where about 8:28 min a passage seems recollect "The Musical Box" ( however, it is a briefer passage than mentioned previously). The other tracks, obviously present the already mentioned influences (but, who doesn't have influences? ) however none of them "arrives" to the point of saying "this is a lot similar to that music of.... " Besides I don't think none of the musicians to be a type of clone, for instance: the vocalist doesn't imitate nor the style of singing nor the vocal timbre from Jon Anderson , Peter Gabriel or Greg Lake, the same happens with the other ones and therefore they know how to work very well with these influences for us to create a different "silhouette " from their "inspiring" ones. Besides I can detach some moments that deserve at least an appreciation like Track 1 ".Ad Infinitum", Track 3 "Waterline", Track 7 "Overland " and Track 9 "Neither Here Nor There." Desire to stand out that although it doesn't consider the disk a essential item I liked a lot and this albun does part of my collection. My rate is 3 stars!!!
