1967/ 1976
5 stars If I were to say what the Irish groups that I like more classic names should be listed: Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore (also with Skid Row), Taste/ Rory Gallagher and Fruupp. Now fruupp is a great band if Gabriel's Genesis and Renaissance please you because Fruupp is the perfect mix between these two bands. Clear, because it is clear, without the magic of Genesis or Renaissance but with a great Fruupp magic. The music is complex and not easy, also if the listen is easy. The sound is a great poem. The production is light and not oppressive.

Said these affermations I think that "Modern Masquerade" is a good album. In the vein of Renaissance are securely the the plots between melody and soli, also rhythmics. In the vain of Genesis are securly the various rhythm changes, also with particular rhythmic figures, not conventional. In some moments the voice is in the vein of Steve Winwood but with more in Folk field that in Soul field. So the final result is a complex in rhythm and easy in sound electric Symphonic Prog... 24 charat Symphonic Prog. That is perfect still today!

1967/ 1976 | 5/5 |
