Prog Reviewer
3 stars A technically flashy album which sits mainly in the symphonic prog camp - but with enough jazz leanings to make it palatable to fusion fans too. In fact, the results sound a bit like what might happen if the Mahavishnu Orchestra decided to record a tribute album to King Crimson, Yes or Emerson, Lake and Palmer, with the furious guitar heroics of Jan Van Nimwegen being reminiscent of John McLaughlin, the lightning-fast keyboard wizardry of Cleem Determejer recalling Keith Emerson, and Peter Vink displaying a technically advanced, captivating, and original approach to the bass that is as individual and distinctive as Chris Squire's. Glorious AND forceful? Yes, certainly so, but at the same time the band show a mild tendency towards technical showboating and often don't seem to have much of an aesthetic vision beyond "Everything proggier than everyone else".
Warthur | 3/5 |
