Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is the OSIRIS' debut album, a band from... Bahrein! Released in 1981, it's maybe the first neo progressive stuff ever done, and quite good.

Taking elements from GENESIS and -specially- from CAMEL, OSIRIS shows a not really high complex composition level, but plenty of changing signatures, melodically nice and rythmically strong. Sometimes, however, I can hear the typical commercial feeling later developed by IQ, PENDRAGON and similar style bands.

The main instrument is the electric guitar, sounding even heavy sometimes, while keyboards have a "support" role. Nevertheless, the band achieves very symphonic moments along the album, standing out the first track "Fantasy".

Good album, well worth a listen.
