5 stars The first trace(pardon the pun) of dutch keyboard master Rick Van der Linden. After his long stretch with Ekseption (Dutch prog/pop/orchestral outing) He founded Trace...a keyboard powered trio in the vein of ELP. There are traces (sorry)of ELP and indeed of Nice....some hints to Focus without the fabulous guitars of Akkerman....however the main man was/is Van der Linden... A master of the keyboard this record shows!! Its beyond believe power trio keyboard master piece!! Hear ye hear ye of little faith..this is by far the GREATEST Keys, Bass & Drum outfit there is/was...yeah i know you love ELP (so do i!) but this.. is by far the most wonderfull thing happening in the progworld of keyboards!! Track nine shows just how great the drummer is!! The rest speaks for itself....hammond/moog/synthesizer a plenty. And the compositions are just GREAT...blended with classical (in fact)themes!!! Now i know that there are someone outhere (Hi Maani) who probably doesnt like this. And maybe im biased..iwe owned this record on vinyl...and i love it!! So there you have it....its a five star (Ohhh no not again) review!!! And this cd comes with 2 extra tracks (apparently their singles) as bonus!! If you love ELP/Ekseption and Solution...then youŽll absolutely adore this TRACE with their first outing!! What can i say? I Just love it!!! Five stars? Ohhh yes!!! Of course!!!
