4 stars COMEDY OF ERRORS are a Scotish band who arrived on the scene in the mid eighties and released 3 EPs. They then sort of just disappeared until 2011 when they released their very first full length album. Crazy stuff. This is Neo-Prog which reminds me a lot of eighties PENDRAGON. It might be the vocals more than anything else that gives me that impression though. Regardless, this is an album that i'll proudly put with my other favourite Neo-Prog records. This is fantastic !

"Disobey" opens with experimental sounds as the guitar rips it up over top. Vocals just before 2 minutes. What a great sounding track. This is powerful with meaningful lyrics. "Jekyil" kicks in quickly with drums and organ leading the way. The guitar joins in then vocals. "Prelude, Riff And Fugue" opens in a classical manner then it kicks in just before a minute. Nice. Killer guitar after 2 minutes. "Carousel" opens with atmosphere then the guitar starts to solo tastefully as reserved vocals join in. Reflective lyrics on this one. Organ and drums lead after 3 minutes then it kicks in with guitar. A calm after 5 1/2 minutes then it builds. An atmospheric calm ends it. Another amazing tune. "American Rodeo" is almost electronica sounding and uptempo early on. It then kicks in heavily and vocals follow. "Could Have Been Yesterday" opens with acoustic guitar as reserved vocals join in. Beautiful sound. It's fuller 1 1/2 minutes in and then they amp it up more before 4 1/2 minutes. Great song.

"Alisa's Lullaby" is short with piano melodies throughout. "Joke" has piano and reserved vocals. Drums after a minute then it kicks in with guitar after 2 1/2 minutes. "The Student Prince" is the 25 minute epic that ends the album. It's divided into 4 parts. Part 1 kicks in at a minute. How good is this ! Great sound before 4 minutes as well. Part 2 is such a moving track. It kicks in at 1 1/2 minutes then proceeds to kick some ass later. Part 3 opens with piano only then fragile vocals before 1 1/2 minutes. A guitar solo before 5 minutes. Part 4 opens with piano and atmosphere as reserved vocals join in.

A solid 4 stars no doubt.
