3 stars OK....... I will try not to joke too much here although I feel a long witty rant is just coming up. But frankly; this Italian band sounds and feels like the Fish fronted Marillion. The vocals, the sound..... most things here = Fish & Marillion. To this mix, add the band that Marillion once based themselves on; Genesis. And people, well make that me too, claims The Watch is a Genesis/Marillion rip-off. Their countrymen in Asgard has bettered The Watch. Well, based on this album at least.

I have just said everything you need to know about their sound. Yes, it has some RPI flavours too. But most all of it is Marillion/Genesis based.

The quality of the music is very good though. This is a concept like album. The musicians is more than competent and they pulls of a delightful album which has made me order some more Asgard albums. Then again; I am a Genesis fan. But also those with normal mental health will find this album very enjoyable.

3.5 stars
