3 stars A new band from Toronto, Canada.

Although a new band, Druckfarben consists of several veterans from the local Toronto scene. A scene that also includes the likes of Rush, Saga and Triumph.

But there is an English band that mostly springs to mind during the opening minutes of this album. When evaluating this band, we accepted them into the symph prog genre as another Yes clone. I am happy to report that this is partly wrong. Although Phil Naro at his best sings like Jon Anderson, the album does also include a lot of influences from the likes of Saga and Rush too. Not to mention a good portion of AOR too. The sound is pretty much all out AOR too.

It is pretty obvious that this band is here to have fun as it consists of members with a lot of life experience. The fun factor is a big part of this album. The quality of the material is good throughout. I am most happy when the band goes into Yes mode, not being a fan of AOR at all. This album is missing a true great killer track. But by all means, this is a good album which should get a lot of fans among fans of melodic prog rock. But Yes clones, they are not.

This is a good debut album from a band with a lot of potential.
