3 stars The subject of this CD reminds me of the album Flossenengel by fellow Germans Novalis. On that CD you can listen to genuine whale sounds, very impressive and what a shame the human race is still so cruel towards these wonderful mammals! But back to the music, before I become too emotional, this CD is mainly based upon wonderful, often compelling guitarwork (lots of great soli) with strong hints from David Gilmour. No surprise because the band mentions Pink Floyd as their main influence. The keyboards sounds pleasant, the vocals are OK, the rhythm-section does a decent job, my only negative remark concerns the compositions: these sound a bit too similar but in general Abarax has delivered a fine debut-CD with lots of good progrock moments.
