4 stars A really strong debut CD from a French band, formed in 1995, called XANG. Their all instrumental album shows a band of excellent musicians who plays progressive rock that is sometimes close to progressive metal. It's complex, sometimes quite, sometimes loud and always very intriguing, like a mix between ARENA, DREAM THEATER, FLAMBOROUGH HEAD, GENESIS, IQ, LANDS END, MARILLION, PENDRAGON, RUSH and SPOCK'S BEARD, but all instrumental. It's very hard to do an instrumental album that keeps the listener's attention throughout the whole album. I think that XANG has succeeded though with their strong guitar riffs and melodies. The CD also has a beautiful 24-page CD-booklet. I had heard a lot about XANG in discussions on Internet before I got the album. All the rumours had been unanimous that this is a great album, and all I can do is join them in their praise. XANG have made their exit from the old Millennium in a worthy way. Eight tracks of total instrumental perfection! Recommended!
