4 stars Actually to me... 4 1/2 stars!!!!. Moreover, even that may change in the future once I have the opportunity to listen to their other output.

Make no mistake; this is a Mellotron/Guitar lover wet dream!!! To me the major seminal influence is definitively Camel!. Now Mr.Millo for moments also I guess was influenced by Hackett.

This is absolutely great stuff..No matter How you sliced it, in the 70's, 80's, 90's or even now; Neo-prog pufff!!!, I promised myself that I will stop using that term, and rather used "Modern Symphonic Rock" instead; Now, the only "Neo-Prog" is that their music is accessible and not complex...But, personally I will come back to listen radio if this was on the air, and to be honest we progressive rock lovers should be proud that this kind of music developed from such influences of the 70's.

Anyways, into this album...Four Moments will sit perfect in my shelf of classics, and that is just IMHO; I like the centerpiece, which is divided into 4, but I flip over the 13 minutes track "Openings". Remember these are four members, but the interplay between them is great, especially Millo and Pilt; with some outstanding guitar passages, and the always present Mellotron, I love it!!

Mr. Millo voice is also very good and adequate for their music, and is not misused.

Finally, yet importantly, I am very surprised and happy to see something like this coming from other place different from UK during the mid-seventies.

If you have not heard SEBASTIAN HARDIE do not missed it anymore!!! However, if you are the kind of Prog fan, that only like complexity...Do not bother.

Prognut | 4/5 |
