Review by ProgShine

2 stars I don't understand this Dutch band Sylvium. This is their second full lenght album (plus one EP) and the band still has no identity whatsoever...

As in their first album more than half of Waiting For The Noise (2015) is but a copy of Steven Wilson's music and style, then you have a couple of tracks that are basically copies of Riverside's music...

I understand influence, but on Sylvium's case this is more like lack of identity, which one would think that by the second album the band would have solved the issue, guess not!

They actually worked to solve some points I had against them when I reviewed their first album The Gift Of Anxiety (2013), they are indeed working with more vocals and the album in general feels more 'Prog' and less Alternative. But they achieved that by assimilating, as I mentioned before, too much of other bands music and that makes almost impossible for me to enjoy Sylvium's new album.

Not sayinf there's no quality in their music, but for me I can't listen to the album without pointing which songs is similar to what artist and that... is not good for an album.
