4 stars This record contains neo-prog music. The excellent male lead & female backing vocals occupy a major place in the music. There is sometimes an artificial piano that sounds a bit ear candy, but it makes rather interesting melodies. I find the music not extremely loaded, and it may lack a bit of bottom and depth; one often feels a certain lack of continuity, sustain and solidarity regarding each instruments. The comparison with Collage's Moonshine, especially regarding the electric guitars and the keyboards, is inevitable and appropriate, except that the Collage's sound is much more powerful, loaded, colorful, deep, sustained and elaborated. Plus, the compositions on Collage's Moonshine are much more complex. I also sometimes find some similitudes with the "Visible Wind" band. Nevertheless, the interesting variety of the modern & attractive keyboards arrangements here allow this record to not fall into a bland art/rock categorization: the keyboards are very pleasant to listen, especially on tracks like "Stand straight". The very melodic and emotional electric guitar, similar to the Collage's one, is however less sustained, echoed and flamboyant; the combination electric guitars-keyboards is however pretty well succeeded here. There is an epic track lasting 16 minutes, "Killing silence", which reminds you, again, Collage. To conclude, let's mention this album can be considered as a very good diluted Collage's album.
