3 stars Quidam's new studio album "Saiko" comes out in a few days, so it's a good time to look back at the incredible Alone Together. Whilst prog purists tore their hair out at Marillion's wide-ranging musical wanderings from Seasons End onwards, it appears Quidam have been taking copious notes, because Alone Together is a reasonably (but not world-conqueringly) successful attempt at a rather similar musical evolution, though one which I think will appeal more to the purists than Marillion's has.

On the whole, the album manages to hit a balance between the classic neo-prog sound of previous Quidam albums on the one hand and delving into lush, rich soundscapes of the sort Marillion have been toying with on the other, the end result being a compelling, fascinating, and very original album which takes Quidam's sound in a whole new direction, though one which to my ears feels like a little bit of a calculated move.

Warthur | 3/5 |
