Prog Reviewer
5 stars The debut album by Tempus Fugit is a compelling neo-prog piece which combines graceful vocal sections (which remind me a great deal of 1990s Pendragon - there's the same gentle melodicism you can hear on the classic The Window of Life at work here) with extremely extensive and varied instrumental passages which combine the best of Genesis and early IQ, and here and there add in a flavour of traditional Brazilian music (see, for instance, the acoustic guitar section on The Lord of a Thousand Tales) to allow Tempus Fugit to put their own distinctive stamp on proceedings.

True, none of this sounds particularly original, though Fugit's performances take this album to the next level - as with the best works of their influences, this is the sort of music which feels like it is taking you on a journey, and which is it a sheer pleasure to just put on whilst you sit back, close your eyes, and let your imagination run riot. Yes, it's a rather derivative style of prog which tends towards adhering to a formula. But in this case, Tempus Fugit have hit on a formula for turning base neo-prog into gold.

Warthur | 5/5 |
