Review by b_olariu
3 stars PBII from Holland was formed around 2008 and is a continuation of what done another dutch band named Plackband. Second release of PBII named 1000 wishes is a good concept , a sad one I might say story, anyone intrested listen to the album, read the lyrics and find what is behind. Musicaly speaking this is something between neo prog with symphonic parts and grandious orchestrations as on an opera rock release there is even The Hague Youth Symphony Orchestra who give a great atmosphere overall.. This is a lenghty album with more the 70 min of music, lenghty oneses, shorter ones aswell, narration is present here and there to make even more real. Anyway the instrumental sections are more then ok, even great, such on A Perfect Day - an 11 min tune of the highest calibre. The voice aswell is perfect for such music, elaborated with great range. All in all a good band that is rather quite unnoticed in prog circles, both albums worth to be investigated. 3.5 stars for this second offer, good but not quite close to masterpice.
