3 stars Space revolver from 2000 is musicaly pretentious , it's unintresting in places, it's fantastic and intriguing in other places, but overall is nothing really close to a masterpiece as is said on some reviews. The music is complex with nice arrangements keeping old formula, remind me of golden period of symphonic music of the '70's when was pompous, complex, nice and well balanced. Mrs Stolt is one of the main prog musicians in last 20 years but doesn't impress me very much both as vocalist or as guitarist or keyboard player. I understand and respect his qualities as musician , but to tell you the truth I know and listen to hundred more intristing musicians over the years. Returning to the music it seams to me an amalgamation of symphonic elements where are added some more jazzier arrangements on some pieces, some pop tunes with progressive touches, so a soup but a tastey one in places, but not overall. Usualy I don't like albums that doesn't had substance, the progressive rock is here on every piece but to much noodleings here. I will give 3 because some parts are good and very well played. An ok album, an ok band but nothing over the top as is said almost everywhere about them. I'm a moderate fan of their music, I don't hate it but to much time sound the same on every album, still good for sure.
