3 stars This album was originally pressed in a quantity of 200 and sold at concerts. The music is symphonic prog and sounds like Camel of Eloy. It is both melodic and melodramatic. When the vocals are not very good (partly because of the heavy German accent), the production is even worse, it sounds very homemade. On the positive side, the tracks are rather good. The opening of the track She reminds me of something I heard before. This intro must have been stolen by another artist, but I don't know which one. Anyway, it's a good opener. Battle Rock is an upbeat track, except for the vocal parts, where the music is very slow. The next track is an instrumental, and apart from the Camel influence I also hear a little bit of Genesis coming through. Festival has few vocals again and sounds a bit folky. The remaining tracks, Sinclair and Choke, are instrumentals again. Both tracks sound similar to each other and have good solos with fuzzy guitar and heavy organ. If only the production was a lot better, this would have been a good album.
Agemo | 3/5 |
