Review by Prog-jester
3 stars Many of us face the fact of Prog Rock's dying. Being the first person to review THE METAPHOR's latest album, I'm afraid this is somewhat true.

THE METAPHOR plays that good old Prog from 70s, without any sign of modern techs or influences. Even drums sound a bit sloppy, as if recorded in some kind of 70s basement. I like debut record of these guys very much, it was innovative and striking, with music inspired by GENESIS, KING CRIMSON, GENTLE GIANT and JETHRO TULL (and lesser known British/American Prog Rock acts) and vocals that reminded me of Steve Hogarth of today's MARILLION (!). Quite unusual unity, that gave birth to enjoyable and worthy Retro Prog record. With "The Sparrow" guys show their ability to stay conservative - but I doubt it would be better for them. Their best melodies and ideas were on "Starfooted" (that debut), and on "The Sparrow" we have the same melodies and ideas without a slight sign of re-work, re-make or something. Wearing out the very idea of Retro Prog, "The Sparrow" sounds cool, but only if it's your first Retro Prog album you ever experienced. Unfortunately, I found it rather dull despite the obvious melodic gift the band has. Most die-hard Retro-Prog aficionados that would kill for GG, KC, GENESIS or PF will find this one to be rather good, maybe even stunning. But sorry, not me. Recommended for Retro-Prog / Neo-Prog / Art-Rock / Symphonic Prog fans mostly
