5 stars This album is a masterpiece!

It is pretty much the best album which was released since the millenium. For me it was definetly the album of the year 2005. It might be different for some people to get into, I don't want to deny that, but I loved it as I heard it for the first time. The 5 guys from Norway undestand it to make interesting, diversified music. Prog-listeners, this album is so full of ambiance, you won't belive that!

As you can hear on this album, Wobbler is heavily inspired by Anglagard and Gentle Giant and a bit by Genesis, King Crimson, Emerson, Lake and Palmer and also Yes. Anyhow, Wobbler has its own style.

After the first short song, "Serenade for 1652" which is the introduction for this album, Wobbler directs you with "Hinterland" through the moments of classic progressive rock. They stop at different stations which sometimes sound like Gentle Giant, Genesis, King Crimson, Yes or Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Classic passages interrupt the more rocky parts here.

The title "Rubato Industry" has very interesting and beautiful melodies. This song has a very beautiful chant, in my opinion.

The song "Clair Obsur" starts with a beautiful piano-melody with flutes and gets very rocky and interesting. It ends with a piano-outro with flutes. A felicitous finish, if you ask me.

This album is so full of genious musical work, has such a tight ambiance as no other album had for a long time. What a debut-album! I'm really impressed! It deserves 5 stars!
