4 stars Versus X from Germany is one of the most intresting bands I've heared lately. Conducted by excellent musician Arne Schäfer responsable for guitars and vocals here, he is also the main man on Apogee band. Second album released in 1996 named Disturbance issued at Musea records, to me is a total winner, to discribe it in one word - intresting. Only 3 pieces features here, but all lenghty, one of them clocking around 23 min and is a killer one in every aspect. Dark moody atmosphere grace this album with long instrumental passages , alternating from mellow to more uptempo in a good and very intresting manner. Quite complex eclatic prog , elaborated arrangements, piano , keyboards and guitar having an important role here, sometimes remind me a lot of Genesis - Selling England by the pound era, specially on piano parts. very good are the guitar lines, dark , very spacey with a clear tone and very inventive partrs. Is a realy nice surprise this album for me, even I have it for some years only now I have the time to re listen carafuly. This is the kind of prog that I like, complex, elaborated with plenty of great instrumental parts, Forte piece I think the last one The Mirror of Division , is absolutly a killer one, Curtain fall comes second. I don't realy know why is so low rated this album, aswell as the next one, to me Disturbance is a damn fine release that needs a far more exposure. Maybe the vocals are not among the best I've heared but fits perfect in the atmosphere of the album. 4 stars easy, among my fav albums ever.
