3 stars The debut album from these Glaswegian/Scottish neo-progsters follows the usual prog path from the 1980s. The songs are pretty light melodic and not overly complicated. The sound is surprisingly good. Most of all; they sounds like a melodic version of Marillion.

The musicans and the vocalist is highly skilled. The arrangements is excellent too. A couple of repetetive and slightly annoying songs who runs out of steam long before the end are included too. Typical 1980s songs, in other words.

The overall quality is as good as expected. This being a debut album, I am surprised how settled their sound is. No fumbling around in other words. No chasing down their style and identity. That is already there from the very first tone. And yes, they sounds too much like Marillion at times. But overall, this is a very good album and one that surely put Abel Ganz on the map.

3.25 stars
