2 stars The second Ageness album is really their debut album. The Scarab album was under the Scarab name.

Ageness is spelled Genesis backwards and that shows. Well, almost. Ageness approaches Genesis and Marillion from an hard rock angle. That and from AOR. Plenty of guitars and keyboards here. A vocalist that tries to imitate Peter Gabriel is also included. His imitation act fails though.

Ageness tries their best. But I cringe when they sings about Rush, Genesis and Marillion and then include a piece of Genesis music into one of their songs. Please, don't do it...... The rest of the album contains of pretty moody nordic symphonic prog. The quality is not that great though, even exluding the cringe worthy parts. Most of this album can send a speekfreak to sleep. It is that boring. Boring is not a good thing when you have forked out 3 x the packet of 12 x sleeping tablets on this album. Should had bought the sleeping tablets instead.

Competent, but boring.
