3 stars The first ever review of a Special Providence album here in PA and following on from the interview.

This is the second album from Special Providence. Which makes me wonder why this band has been lumped into the Prog Metal genre. This album is not metal at all so I guess they got the label based on their first album. The music on this album is fusion with a lot of jazz too. Mahavishnu Orchestra springs to mind. And so is a lot of other straight fusion bands too.

Talking of Mahavishnu Orchestra. Labyrinth though is a lot more laid back and does not have the cascades of guitars. But it is in this slightly laid back landscape you will find this album. There is plenty of guitar solos on Labyrinth though.

This is a very enjoyable listen, this album. Some really killer tracks would had been fine though. But I have really enjoyed this album and do recommend it and the band to all fusion fans out there.

3.5 stars
