Prog Reviewer
3 stars Reading over the reviews for this album, I'm surprised how much they are compared to Genesis. Actually, they are a complete copy of Marillion, especially in the vocals department. Simone Rosetti sounds more like Fish then anyone I've heard so far. Now all you need to do is throw on the track "The Theme" and listen towards the end. You'll hear an almost exact copy of the spoken word section on Marillion's "Forgotten Son". It's not until you get to track 6, "A Game with Shifting Mirrors" that you hear any originality. It's an instrumental song that starts out softy then explodes with a prog metal type riff then ends softy. I give them credit for trying to sound somewhat different. The last songs has a sound akin to their countrymen "Finisterre', a nice PFM- like pastoral song thats very pretty. This is a tough album to gauge. They do the Marillion stuff well, and they throw in some original stuff at the end. I'll round the album out in the center with a 3 star rating, (4 stars if you love anything Marillion-like).
