3 stars I am a massive fan of Progrules and follow the reviews avidly. Through recommendations, I have discovered one new neo-prog band after another - Collage, Satellite, Clepsydra, Riverside to name a few - to add to what I already knew i.e. Arena, Pendragon etc. I therefore noted the comments on Red Sand with interest, especially about Empty Calendar, and how Marillion-like it was. Well for the first time I (100% respectfully!) disagree! This song has become one of my favourites - brilliant in pace and relentless melody. Yes, it has obvious shades of Marillion, but for me it takes the best of them and expands on it. Just like Pendragon do with Floydian floatiness and Genesis moments to build their own glorious uplifting melodies. Add Empty Calendar to that the long track Shark Man, and we are up to 3' stars without even hearing the rest. Great stuff.
