Review by progrules
PROG REVIEWER
1 stars Ok now, I can be very brief with this review. In fact this semi-official album by Arjen Lucassen is pretty much the same thing as Fish's Songs from the Mirror release. Just a bunch of cover songs and also here only a few prog related and the rest just sixties popsongs. This means the progressive content of this releaser is maybe 10% or something

If you are a fan of those this one could be fun but if your taste is more or less like mine and the average sixties song scores just about two stars or the likes then this album could be a waste of money.

Of course it's always nice to check out what Lucassen's favourite songs from that period were and apparently his roots are in that decade but that's just about the only positive element I can think of. In this case the description "only for completionists" fits very well in my opinion. And that means one star. In conclusion a note about the execution of the songs: it's an Ayreon-like performance of the mentioned sixties songs which means the songs are played in a metal vein. The executional quality is not the problem obviously. Just the concept.
