Prog Reviewer
5 stars Just like Schwarzenegger's movies: Action und Comedy.

Yes, this Comedy of Errors has a lot of action moments such as frenzy keyboard solos (a la Clive Nolan, thank you very much) and good rythms like in The Student Prince suite. This band is giving you a run for your money, and frankly the Néo genre needed fresh blood...really bad.

I qualify this entry as fresh blood, but not in terms of ingenuity or new approach; this is album lives and breathes the 80's, especially albums like Misplaced Chilhood or artists like Gowan. Meh, whaddaya want? The originality is not Disobey's strong point! What is it then? Well, and I weight my words here, the level of melody is astonishing. They throw at your face over and over again some of the best melodies you could imagine; never seen since Arena. They take a well- know recipe: the same keys effects and Stratoscaster solos we heard 2000 time BUT with a tons of hooks. Finally, a band not ashamed to entertain you! I recall the best of Arena's keyboards with tasty guitar straight from Kate Bush Wuthering Heights. I know! Not ground breaking, but the melodies are just sooooo *bleeping* good. I feel like closing my eyes to Prelude, Riff and Fugue and dive off a cliff listening this fantastic track or running in the rain to Jekyll, stomping every time into shallow ponds of water. Lots of metaphors but lots of taste!

Yes to unoriginality, yes to awesome hooks, yes to entertainment, yes to replay button and YES to Comedy of Errors.

Menswear | 5/5 |
