2 stars The debut album from this German band. A band I suggested for inclusion some time ago.

This band, or perhaps project, consist of two keyboard players. One of them also doubles up as a guitarist. That is guitarist as in playing Camel like guitar solos. The music on The Castle is a mix of New Age and a bit more dynamic symph prog. It is called meditation music and should be avoided at all cost if you take your car/truck/tractor/milk float on a long drive. You will probably fall asleep. Which it seems is the whole idea behind this album.

Meditation is a good idea. But it is not a good idea when trying to review an album. A review is supposed to be more than just ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ (as in snoring). Although I am sure that will be a theme up for heated debate in the ProgArchives forums.

This album trundles along with some pastoral keyboards with some sound and rhythm effects added as a creative spices. That and some long guitar solos. None of them are interesting.

There are some good melody lines here. But most of this album is hard to concentrate on. And I am meditating for world peace throughout this review. Still, this album is not an album I would recommend. In short, this is only an album for the insomniac or medidating masses.

2 stars
