2 stars The Lithuanian band The Skys was found in Vilnius at the end of 95' with guitarist/singer Jonas Ciurlionis being the leading figure.Jonas had to face many line-up changes during the early years of the group, which however included two cassette albums, ''Civilized'' (1997) and ''Dreams'' (1999).The first one was even performed as theatrical work in 2001 at the Jaunimo Teatras in Vilnius.It was the time, when Ciurlionis was already joined by permanent guitarist Aleksandr Liutvinskij.2004 sees the first CD of the band on Kuku Records, entitled ''PostModern game'', with Gediminas Alekna on bass, Algirdas Kucinskas on keys and Vitalijus Katysovas on drums.

In ''PostModern game'' The Skys surprisingly sound like an American group, even having some sort of Boogie Rock vibes contained in their style, with little to remind the origins of the group.The style of the group is rather undeveloped, based on eight short tracks with typical structures and a few progressive influences.Actually most of the time The Skys sound like a poor man's ZZ TOP with a strongly guitar-driven sound, sometimes supported by organs, offering bluesy and Hard Rock influences.At moments there is a slight PINK FLOYD inspiration detected, coming from the early-70's years of the group.Some guitar solos are quite interesting, but this seems to be the most fascinating thing about this release.In ''D-minor'' there is an attempt by The Skys to offer a more grandiose, orchestral sound with more evident use of keyboards, but again the result is questionable, while ''Broken sound'' seems the more diverse track with a fairly exciting groove, nice 70's-influenced keyboards and a few decent breaks, always with a highly rockin' mood.''Virtual reality'' has a good psychedelic vibe with hypnotic piano and sax in tne forefront, the result though is making the album a bit of a mess.

Unfortunately ''PostModern game'' is a very short and forgettable album.Careful and secure performances in a work that will more likely please fans of Classic Rock than Prog Rock.This one shouldn't be among your main priorities.
