1 stars I got this album for a birthday gift and it will be given to someone less critical as a gift or thrown away. There is very little I like about this album. First of all: Trying to copy the great bands from the seventies is NOT enough, you need to have musical ideas!! I find very few here, just pale shadows of the creative compositions that marked bands like Genesis and Yes. The melodies are unoriginal and trivial, there are no hooks to remember, the musicianship is ok, but nothing special. Second; the singer! Oh my God, the singer. Again, trying to sound to sound like someone else (Gabriel) when you have so little of his timbre and grit is bound to fail. This singer has a shrill, shrieking voice that ruins the already poor songs. I get annoyed really quickly when listening to him, and just ache to turn the whole thing off.

To me prog is trying to create something that is special, finding your own style and voice. D'Accord does nothing of the sort and has no qualities that I find appealing. There are no mittigating circumstances that justifies being boring when it comes to prog. In my humble opinion...
