2 stars Prog Rock for Noobs.

Knight Area's in what I call 'The Little League' of prog rock. Not complicated, not about pyrotechnics; it's about a catchy art cover, it's about a good song, not too long, topped with loud keyboards. Now, they've crossed the threshold of double bass drums and rockier moments. But again, Knight Area is a band that is not taking chances and not really evolving from their (way too easy to spot) influences. Am I gullible?

No. Not this time. They are serving us the same clichés of late 70's (again that Trick of the Tale album!), but this time the few good hooks and solos are not giving me the need to come back on that train.

Easy to digest, often AOR, this album made me take the decision of not renewing my prescription by this Dutch band. Not a bad album by all means, but too light and simple for my taste. I've been this road on the debut of my seeking journey, and I'm not coming back for them.

I'm Out with a capital O but I wish them well.
