2 stars Final Conflict is not changing their type of music for their second album.

No great breakthrough, no passionate moments. The music performed on this work doesn't sound any better than on Redress the balance, their average debut album.

Song structure is simple and is based on good guitar work, enjoyable keys but standard melodies. Don't expect anything like the best works of the genre : genuine Marillion and Pendragon were unbeatable in their melodic neo-prog. Final Conflict is just a second division band as far as this genre is concerned.

Some good songs (Old Lady) but nothing else. This band is rather anonymous on this site, but when I looked at their website, I can't really tell that they put a lot of efforts to promote their image efficiently.

Anyway, this album is not bad, but it lacks in good ideas and great tracks. Waiting For A Chance being the poorest here although the band tries to be catchy. But this pop song is not attractive. Same beat all the way down.boring actually.

I am trying hard to discover a great track on this offering. But my quest for such a song remains unsuccessful. Last Act is unfortunately not what it is promising. There will still be two more songs to endure.

But All Alone is the best you can get out of this album. A serious track, finally! At least some fine and melodic work. Not a masterpiece, but far much better than most of the other songs from Quest.

The long Betrial although melancholic, features an upbeat second part. Above average as well. I guess that the band could have shortened dramatically their offering to make it more interesting.

Two stars, which means below average.

3 stars Waiting for their chance

Quest was Final Conflict's second CD release and it is quite different from their debut, the more conventional Redress The Balance. Quest is a conceptual affair and overall a lot more progressive compared to the debut. With its occasional narration and many keyboard-based instrumental interludes, it reminds me a bit of the self-titled and sole album by Casino, a one off group with Clive Nolan, Karl Groom and Geoff Mann released the same year as Quest. Early Galahad might also come to mind and both Galahad and Pendragon are thanked in the liner notes. Final Conflict is not your usual Neo-Prog band, but Quest is probably the closest they came to the expected British Neo-Prog sound. The concept of Quest revolves around crosswords and in addition to the usual CD booklet with full lyrics, the album also comes with a foldout sheet with a crossword! I haven't tried to solve it (yet).

Two of the album's songs were previously familiar to me. All Alone later resurfaced in a new version on the band's 2006 studio album Simple (which contained several re-recorded versions of older material) and both this song and also Waiting For A Chance were featured on the band's recent live DVD, Another Moment In Time. These two are certainly among the better songs on Quest but the more recent versions are better. They have a better sound compared to these original versions. All Alone in particular lacks the punch that they managed to inject into the 2006 version. The melodic Waiting For A Chance has something of a Celtic feel in the guitar melody that I like a lot.

The rest of the album is not at all bad either, but some of the better songs would probably benefit from the same treatment that was given All Alone on Simple. While nicely recorded and produced, the drum and keyboard sounds in particular are a bit "artificial" and the vocal talents of Brian Donkin and Andy Lawton had yet to reach their full potential. There is indeed a lot of potential displayed on Quest overall, but the band had yet to fully find their own musical identity at this point. Let's hope that they consider recording a Simple part II with further re-recorded songs from their early days. Old Lady is a good song from the present album that should be taken into consideration if they do. Some other songs, however, like A Look At Life for example, are more conventional Rock tracks that perhaps would fit better on the debut. While there are no weak tracks as such here, there are a few "grey" areas on this album. But I still find it very pleasant and enjoyable on the whole.

Quest is certainly a good Neo-Prog album that will please followers of the genre in general and fans of Final Conflict in particular. It is not, however, as great as anything that followed. I would strongly recommend beginners to start with the band's three subsequent studio albums: Stand Up, Hindsight and Simple, which are all excellent, as well as the great recent live DVD that brings together some of their best ever songs in one place. But if you still want more after that, Quest is a good addition to your collection.

2 stars The band from Staffordshire did not spent much time between their debut and the sophomore release.With Steve Lipiec replacing Tony Moore on keyboards,Final Conflict entered The Gaolhouse Studios in their town Newcastle under Lyme and recorded the concept album ''Quest'' in 1992.It was their second and final release for the Spanish Gaia Records.

The strong debut ''Redress the balance'' had already set high marks around the band,but at the end ''Quest'' turns into a slight dissapointment.Actually the first two or three tracks are quite good and fairly comparable to the best out of their debut: Imaginative, clean and alternating Neo Prog with AOR/Hard Rock touches,very good vocal ranging from more sensitive to strong lines and of course catchy and melodic guitar work.From now on the album will somewhat fall towards the cliff.Very AOR-based with synths more on the front having a mediocre sound and only a few nice guitar moments and some MARILLION-esque keys will save the tracks,which heavily lean towards good production and energy but less on inspiration and trully memorable material.We will have to wait for the longest and last track ''Betrial'' for some decent stuff again.Here the band show what they are capable of with the atmospheric lyrical intro giving its place to some dynamic guitars and vocals along with the good synth work.

''Quest'' should not be among your major preferences,no matter if you are a fan of Neo Prog or not.Half of the album is rather forgettable and uninspired and the few interesting compositions will appeal to fans of GALAHAD or second phase-PALLAS.Better try some samples before moving to a buy...2.5 stars.

3 stars Final Conflict is one of the lesser known neo-prog acts from UK scene from late'80s early '90s with all that they released some ok albums over the years. One of them is Quest issued in 1992, the second release. The music offered are quite standard neo prog, with influences from let's say Marillion but also IQ and quite similar with dutch Egdon Heath or americans Iluvatar who were contemporary with them. Nice guitars interplays with keyboards on the melodic side, nothing is original or mindblowing but decent and well performed also very accesible, at least to my ears. Also the vocal passages are ok most of the time with good lines typical for such music. Some good towards great pieces here like Old lady, Mirror Of Lies or ending Betrial doesn't save the band to be anonymus among prog listners. Well, to me 3 stars for sure. Nice art work

5 stars First thing I have to say: there has been almost two years between my first review of "Quest" and this. So, I have listened to it many, many times. I suggest you do the same. Some flaws in the production doesn't make it very easy, but try it. It's really worth it. Now, why 5 stars where there was ... (read more)

4 stars Excellnet neo prog record from this band. I'm still wondering why Final Conflict is not better known outside England.
