2 stars Agamemnon sounds like it was recorded one decade earlier than it was actually recorded.. The whole project suffers from poor drumming and mixing. To tell the truth it is impossible for me to take any music serious unless a satisfying drummer is involved in it. But still I kept on listening to the album.

The vocalist sounded like Cat Stevens to me at some passages. But his performance is pleasing anyway. The compositions and the harmonic structure is very basic. Quite repetitive from time to time. The 10th minute of "Part 1" was pleasing to my ears but nothing more than that. The part ends abruptly with a fade out meaning that it was not intended to end at that point when the recording started.Trying to hear the bass is a problem itself.

With the Part 2, luckily we start to hear the bass player. His performance is very musical and above the whole recording. On this track it was the bass player who kept me away from giving up listening.

The keyboard sounds are warm and delicious throughout the album. The piano solo at the 12th minute of Part 2 is surprisingly above the general performance of the album.

I don't know if I will live long enough to give a second chance to listen to Agamemnon but a collector might find it useful to get a copy for his archive.
