4 stars There are always bands and albums that give you the feeling of "love on first sight (listening)" simply because they match with your taste 100%. Those cases in which you don't have to listen at least 5 times to make up your mind what you think of them. But they're simple there, the real deal for you as if they were especially made for you. And here we have an example of that. Yleclipse latest from 2008 is the real deal for me.

And the explanation is simple: long extended instrumental (mainly guitar) solos that seem to go on and on and in flawless style and execution. The title track is a great example of what I mean but so are in fact all (5) long tracks. Yleclipse simple have the right formula for my preference.

So an obvious 5 star case you would think but alas not. The vocals spoil some of the fun for me and have to prevent me to give the highest score. But it's close, 4.5 is the least it deserves but I will have to round down here. An average of 3.4 and 11 ratings in total so far is a way too low score in both respects. So at least I can do my part here in giving this release a bit of a boost. And what's most important: it's so well deserved. Extremely recommended for neofans who dig the long guitarsolos that simply never grow dull in this case. So go for it and check it out at least !
