Review by Mellotron Storm
3 stars 3.5 stars. In my opinion this is a step down from the debut but it's actually a really good album. Again this is a four piece out of Hungary who play mostly Jazz Fusion but they add Metal which I don't mind except when they hit us with those annoying riffs out of the blue. I just find that they did a better job on the debut "Space Cafe" in contrasting the heavy metallic sections with the lighter jazzy passages and songs. On both albums I have to give these guys credit for creating memorable melodies on some of those lighter jazz tunes. Such a stark contrast and I must admit this one wasn't as easy to digest when it comes to the "in your face" riffs. By the way the band calls their music Progjazzrockmetalturbochill music. And how about that Pac Man album cover. What?! I found myself enjoying the jazzier tunes to my surprise more than the heavier ones. So "Deep Smile" is a top three and a special tune that is so pretty and memorable. I like the catchy melody that comes and goes on "Green Sun" and the bass solo in atmosphere. The other top three is "Sajkod" which is a beautiful song with shuffling drums, piano and bass. I do recommend this album and the debut, such a talented band.

3 stars The first ever review of a Special Providence album here in PA and following on from the interview. This is the second album from Special Providence. Which makes me wonder why this band has been lumped into the Prog Metal genre. This album is not metal at all so I guess they got the label based ... (read more)
