3 stars Atrium from Lisbon - Portugal is a little known neo prog band. Formed in 2003 and only in 2011 they release their first offer named simply 2011. Well, Atrium played a type of neo prog very much similar with bands like Pendragon, or with Asia or Barclay James Harvest. Over all is not a bad album, but is lacking in energic moments, sometimes is to monotonous and the pieces doesn't deliver as much as I want. 7 pieces, very long ones, some ok instrumental sections, where the guitar and keyboards melting decent. The voice is something like Gabriel or even Collins , but noting spectacular in vocal lines, but not bad. Forte pieces to me are Story of a Great Man and Citizen of the World , these two are well balanced neo prog tracks with some intresting tet nothing groundbreaking instrumental parts. All in all Atrium first album is quite ok most of the time, but falling in the category of unknown albums that probaly will stay like this in next period. 3 stars for sure.
