Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars SPECIAL PROVIDENCE are a Jazz Fusion band out of Hungary and this is their debut from 2007. They are a four piece, no horns. All have had musical training and it shows. I can't get over how much I like this band and album. A long one at over 72 minutes, the followup the only other album by them that I own is under 50 minutes but clearly these guys had a lot to say on this their debut to the World. Great title too in "Space Cafe". This is classy and jazzy all the way with some sparse heaviness but no this is not Prog-Metal in the least, at least their first two albums aren't.

Some really cool sounding 70's Funk too on "Mosquito" the shortest track at 5 minutes. So cool and this continues with the next song "Momsterdam" a top five track for me. Sure sounds like clavinet and also one of the more heavier tunes, at least it has some heavier sections. The opener, the title track is a top five and like a few of the other songs it opens with piano only before it builds and picks up in tempo. A feel good sound to this one along with memorable melodies. I'm impressed. A lot of beauty in "Childhood" and the next track "End Of Childhood" is a top five. Atmosphere and piano along with beats. Kind of haunting and suspense is brimming at the surface. This changes as the tempo picks up and we get some power that comes and goes. I like the the synths that lead over the bass and drums. Great sound! Atmosphere and guitar at 6 minutes then they amp it up again. "Lava" is a top five with an interesting start. Almost sounds like vibes as the drums roll in with bass in tow, guitar follows soloing over top. Themes are repeated. Bass solo later. The closer "Falling Angels" ends it and this one sure has it's share of beautiful moments.

A very solid 4 stars. Such a talented band!
