3 stars SUNCHILD is one of the three main musical ventures of Ukrainian composer and musician Antony Kalugin, the other two being Karfagen and Hoggwash, respectively. This project was set up by Kalugin and involves young, aspiring musicians from his homeland. The first album made by Sunchild, "The Gnomon", was issued in March 2008. Two more albums followed hot on the heels of that creation. "The Invisible Line" from 2009 is the first of those.

"The Invisible Line" is an album catering quite nicely to the tastes of those who have a passion for symphonic art rock with a distinct emphasis on mood and atmosphere. Organ, Mellotron and synthesizer nicely and easily combined with acoustic strings as well as those digitized from the sound of them, not too inclined towards quirky or challenging excursions but with pastoral and richly layered arrangements aplenty. Sporting vintage-inspired as well as slightly more modern neo sounding arrangements, it is a disc I surmise might have a key audience among those who enjoy the gentler part of 70's Genesis and Camel as well as neo-prog.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
