3 stars 3.5 for sure.

Quasar is one of the most unnoticed bands from neo prog movements from early '80's from british scene. They were always in the shadow of othe rnamed like Pendragon, Marillion, Iq , etc. They release so far two album, the second one from 1989 named Loreli is to me they most intristing one from the two. Featuring the excellent female vocalist Tracy Hitchings the album sounds as neo as can be an album from this genre, melodic , lush and with some memorable moments. While the album is not very well recived here, I can trace some excellent moments in this album, like opening track The Loreli or Logic?, great pieces with a lot to offer, like all of them aswell. Good keybords in the mix here, maybe little dull at times in comparation with other arrangements from neo from that period but for sure has it's grace and beauty of their own. Only 5 pieces here and lenghty like almost an ep from our days, Loreli is a winner to my ears, a good realease who don't desearve less then 3 stars IMO. A forgotten little album from neo prog zone that needs maybe in prog circles a wider recognition. Great cover arts front/back.
