3 stars 3,5 realy

Mind Portal is a young band from Russia, playing something between progressive metal and fuison in places, all album is instrumental and is pretty much very ok, even great on some tracks. The album is named 1/1 and is released at russian label Mals in 2010. Here are 8 pieces, not very lenghty with exception last piece Dedication nearly has 8 min, the rest are under 6 min, but very solid musicianship I hear here, realy some fantastic parts on opening track Roller coster, realy as the title implies a great tune with fantastic ideas and great interplays between guitar and keys. In fact all pieces are great, not a weak moment here, Maybe I'm little biased because I've descovered latley some fantastic bands from Russia playing intristing progressive rock, even better then bands with big names, one of them is Mind Portal. Pleasent compostions not very complex, but not easy listning either, the band knew how to give to the listner something worth investigated. So, 3.5 stars for this album, fans of the genre need to discover this band, because has talent and plenty of good ideas.
