Prog Reviewer
2 stars Ridiculously overrated Genesis-wannabee band. The band are resonably good players and none of their compositions are explicitly plagiaristic of their sources (though originality is not their strong suit). The main problem is that they simply aren't strong enough composers to make their lack of originality a non-issue; there's little here to keep me interested in listening to the end, and the album's barely over a half-hour long!

The lead singer (who calls himself Doroccas. And people say prog-rock is pretentious!) has an obnoxiously arch and stilted vocal style. And the lyrics are appalling, perhaps not the worst I've ever heard by native English speakers, but close. Thin keyboard sounds worsen matters still.

Progbear | 2/5 |
