3 stars Nurkostam is not making it easy for themselves. This mini CD or a mini album..... whatever..... is a mix of most things.

It starts off like a funk workout with a very infectious groove. Then we have the vocalist and his rather peculiar vocals. It is a love/loathe type of vocals. I am not so sure what I think about this vocals though. But it is bound to split opinions here.

Nurkostam's sound is a difficult to grasp though. I could not for the life of me understand why this band were lumped into the Neo-Prog genre and I still finds that hard to understand. But there is a lot of Genesis references here in addition to some Radiohead and more contemporary rock bands.

Darkmoor with the strong Neo Prog references is by far the best track here. But there are no real weak tracks. That is, after numerous listening sessions. It takes a lot of time to get into this mini album. Time I am not sure was well spent though.

This for me is a good album from a band who has yet to find their voice and identity in this world. Nurkostam most of all feels like a fifteen years boy who once wanted to be a fighter pilot, but no longer knows what he want. Good luck with finding the right vocation in your life.

3 stars
