4 stars It is both fair and unfair to categorise 'Siren Songs' as a compilation album. Most tracks included are not available on any other album by Simon Says and those that do are either part of another compilation (the epic 'Minds of Mortal Men' & the Swedish language version of 'As the River Runs'. Nevertheless the album sounds like a gathering of bits 'n' pieces left off the band's concept albums, studio out-takes or individual 'demo' recordings rather than a cohesive self-contained album.. This is not to denigrate the music which demonstrates, once again, the band's virtuosic skills and capacity for beautiful, epic creations. The two piano solo tracks are particularly noteworthy as they reveal a high level of 'Modernist' compositional skill. If Genesis were still providing their distinctive form of accessible yet fully 'Progressive' music today I wonder if it would sound something like what Simon Says.
