4 stars Landmarq is one of my fav bands from neo zone since first time I've heared then more then 10 years ago. Formed from the ashes of another neo prog band from the '80's Quasar with 2 albums released but remaining totaly unkown untill disbanded in 1990. From Quasar came the drumer Dave Wagstaffe, the guitarist Uwe D'Rose and keybordist Steve Leigh having a helping hand by one of the most briliant voices I've ever heared, but only from their second album Infinity parade no one then Damian Wilson. Their second album from 1993 issue by SI music is a total winner in my book, is my fav Landmarq album and one of my fav albums in general. No weak moments here, all 7 pieces are damn great with the cherry on the cake the top norch Damian's powerfull voice. The music , at least for me is chalenging, great arrangements, excellent guitar meets keyboards and some very intristing vocal parts. The opening track Solitary witness is absolutly killer pieces, Wilson voice cuts deep in my heart every time I hear this tune, what a great lyrics aswell, one of my fav pieces ever. The instrumental Landslide is another worthy track with some inventive and very fun guitar parts, keyboards added gives a great atmosphere. The longest piece Ta'Jiang neaarly 17 min long is a killer one in every aspect, mid tempo with quite a melodic line but constructed with some spectacular guitars and keyboards not to mention that Damina Wilson is again briliant. The More You Seek The More You Lose is a up tempo tune with great chorus and very positive vibe, great I love it, the album ending by a slow one Embrace with intrsting chorus and great again and again top notch voice. In the end I don't really know why is so low rated this allbum aswell like the next one, this is great neo prog, better then most of their country fellow that are praised all the time. 4 stars easy, I simply love this album from start to finish, no less. Excellent.
