Prog Reviewer
5 stars On Chupacabras Phideaux plays a combination of symphonic-leaning neo-prog (particularly on the epic title track and in the Ruffian On the Stairs suite) and 80s gothic rock, with the longer tracks tending to favour the former and the shorter tracks favouring the latter. It's a mix which I admit I'm very partial to, since I'm fond of both those genres, and Phideaux proves to be a more than capable composer of songs in that particular vein. Extracting fascinating performances from his various supporting musicians, Phideaux has crafted an intriguing classic of crossover neo-prog which suggests tempting possibilities for the combination of his musical interests - possibilities which, happily, he would continue to explore in future albums.
Warthur | 5/5 |
