3 stars This first record from Belgium band ISOPODA "Acrosticon", is clearly influenced by GENESIS and in small-scale by Irish band FRUUPP and the result don't present nothing new in relationship to the mainstream of progressive rock from late 70's. However in my point of view is a very pleasant work full of exciting melodies of pure symphonic prog such as in the tracks 1 "Acrosticon" with a great opening theme followed by calm moments with a flute intermissions (like in Genesis tunes) , track 4 "Donīt Do it The Easy Way" another Genesis remminescense and beautiful acoustic passages like in the track 2 "The Muse" (the moment when they are more close from Fruupp composition style) and track 3 "Watch the Day Light shine". Although I don't consider this disk a "pearl", I think this album deserve a place in my collection. My rate is 3 stars !!!
