3 stars Who may expect an early psychedelia infected album here - as the cover art probably implies - will be surprised most certainly. Peter Fallowell, multi-instrumentalist and MULTIFUSE leader, accentuates his affinity to the Sgt. Pepper years, but for me, overall, it sounds more like a leap into the 1980's. 'Harmonies Of Opposites' or HOO or maybe H2O, just to play a little bit with acronyms, is quite a personal statement. Ten songs are given on this new album, telling us a lot about happy and sad feelings, for example dealing with face to face relationships (Aurelia) as well as pitfalls and pleasures concerning internet connections (Imaginary Ways).

Musically this is considerably tending towards a standard rock approach with popular influences, hence there's not much prog in here, just important to know for those who are genre purists. Nonetheless Peter certainly supplies a nice melodic workout with this album. Most of the instruments are played by himself as usual, only Fabio Fecchio contributes with his bass guitar. Richard Robinson often enough cares for the lead vocals, his voice sometimes reminds me of RWPL's Yogi Lang. Cherie Emmitt, who also has participated at the debut album, is often acting from the backing place on the other hand.

What you can hear on 'Harmonies Of Opposites' are proper rock music compositions, stylistically coming close to the likes of Cutting Crew, Fisher-Z, Tears For Fears and similar. Not that spectacular, but, just when you imagine appropriate circumstances, for example like being on a chateau somewhere in South France, spending a nice warm summer evening while listing to his band playing the songs live, with a glass of vin rouge at hand ... yeah, now this would be quite a marvelous experience, I suppose - three well-intentioned stars.
