3 stars Like Wendy is one of those neo prog bands that for some reson never made me listning to them again and again like other bands from this genre. I get as present two of their albums 8 years ago , this one , their second Rainchild and the next one Tales from the moonlit bay, listned couple of times and then I putet them on the shelf never touch the CD until quite recently when I want to re memeber the atmosphere they created. Well, the second album of this dutch band from 1999 - named Rainchild issued at small label LaBraD'or records is the kind of neo prog that a really don't dig a lot, not bad overall but to melodramatic for my taste and to much slow moments on every piece, the up tempo and more energic ones are almost totaly missing here. Anyway the band, the two members did a good job here, specially Bert Heinen who is responsable for some good guitar works remind me of Hackett and some ok keybords melted with the rest of the instruments, mainly the keyboards are more intresting then anything, even are not spectacular moments. Some Pendragon meets Genesis meets Hackett meets Collage is what they offer here, a mellow melodic kind of neo prog, as I said not bad for sure but to much same linear arrangements to my ears. The voice is pretty much ok most of the time, nothing really to talk about the tone of Bert Heinen voice, is ok nothing more. Forte pieces for me is Drowned, Colours of the summer and maybe one or two tracks from the ending album. So, Like Wendy is ok, they offer a pleasent neo prog yet quite unintresting for my ears, 3 stars is best I can give.
