Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Canadian artist, composer and musician Rick MILLER has been releasing music since the 80's, but started recording his particular brand of progressive rock in 2003. "In the Shadows" is his sixth art rock excursion to date, and was issued by the Russian label MALS Records in early 2011.

"In the Shadows" is arguably Rick Miller's most accessible album to date, featuring compositions of a straight-forward and ballad-oriented nature, with gentle symphonic backdrops and fragile instrumental details as essential building blocks. Not an album for those who have a need for challenging escapades, but those who have a taste for timeless and beautiful music inspired by the earliest pioneers of symphonic progressive rock should find this disc to be a charming acquaintance, especially those fond of smooth, melodic and most of all gentle music.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Errors and Omissions Team
3 stars Rick does it again, brings us accessible symphonic (but not Symphonic enough to be in S. Prog category) backed songs that are simply beautiful. Indeed, that's the word to describe them, because of how smoothly they flows, how you can close your eyes and let it take you down the stream of this Prog river. However, in this lies a problem, most of these songs are of a typical composition - piano, vocals, symphonic backing (e.g. - the songs simply sounds too much alike). But I suppose that's inevitable in this kind of music. At least "In the Shadows" is instantly recognizable.
