4 stars Yes, this is one of my fav albums ever

Second album Metaepitome from 2005 of finish progressive rock band named Overhead is an excellent example of sheer greatness in this style. I find it great from start to finish, having one giant piece clocking around 20 min, the title track is the best band ever done in their career for sure. I like a lot the contrast and moods this album offers and specialy this piece, from Floydian atmosphere to a more metalized sections towards the end of the piece, with brilliand songwritting, nice guitar and in same time very intristing passages and above all some of the most great arrangements on keybords I've heared in last years, simply amazing, definetly the cherry on the cake here. Another highlight for me is Point of view with fantastic guitar chops in the last part of the track made in Jaako Kettunen, excellent again. The album ends with another long piece Dawn remind me in places with Marillion, specialy on guitar parts , but again this band from Finland done a fantastic job, no wonder that this album is the highest rated from all 3 released by the band, is their best by far and one of the most intristing I've heared coming not only from Finland but in general. I was simply blown away buy the musicians songwritting and how easy they handle the instruments. Overhead can go from slow mleancholic passages to a more up tempo with amazing ease, a thing that must be laudatory on this album , because has no faults at all, maybe the voice is less intristing for me in general , but overall this album must go highly recommended. 4 stars, kick ass release.
