4 stars NURKOSTAM definitely have made progress in the latter of this decade.

III Of Dreamers can be, I do consider, a passport for them to step up toward an obvious progressive rock scene. Throughout this whole album are filled with heavy, drone, dark and dangerous soundscape ... however, this can never make us depressive at all. Complex but delightful sound steps go firmly ... much influenced by lots of pioneers in 70s progressive rock world. Despite of some catchy flavour in their previous EP, we can hear something like NURKOSTAM's strong progressive intention in this work, can't we?

Anyway, listen to the first track "Ulrich" and we can feel rigid darkness like Discipline-Crimson or strict sound-footsteps like Wigwam. As if a Heavy Rock Giant should break this overture out by stamping his feet ... this dangerous atmosphere even only for three minutes is very impressive. On the contrary, in the following song "The Camel Song" should they be conscious of some Camel texture? Or rather, this dramatic show reminds me Genesis' one. Smooth, dreamy keyboard works upon 'eavy dark depressive drumming can strike me directly. Flat and warped voices are a bit tough for me though ... "Ocean" is a windy, fruitful and monophonic flower garden. Please take a rest for a while upon here ... and their drama gets enthusiastic, passionate in such a quiet air. "Motherside" gets started with crazy psychedelia, with hard touch of dry psychedelic rock around 1970 (like Jacks' Marianne). The most interesting one for me in this album, and the last "Anon" too ... reminds me Ange in Philips era, very sensual and sticky / slimy synthesizer launcher over there. The epilogue goes on the peak of their dramatic storm.

From me one phrase, a great show indeed.
