Navigator biography
This trio was formed in the summer of'98. The mission has to fill the void, evident in prog-genre niche, by creating a "true" retro-progressive sound. Marc Perrcelli on keyboards/synths and lead vocals, Rob Thurman on drums & lead vocals, Michael Soro on guitars and vocals. Influences of the band include ELP, GENESIS, PINK FLOYD, YES and so on from 70-s era.

Their first CD "reEvolution" (vol. 1), a concept piece, was released in 2002. Great stuff... Alas, Marc has left the group some time ago. Nevertheless, NAVIGATOR goes on.

Introduce yourself to this extraordinary band. Recommended.

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars US band NAVIGATOR was formed back in 1998, and released their debut album 4 years later, with a second studio production following in 2006. Following this the band had a longer spell of inactivity as a recording unit, but following an 8 year long hiatus from such ventures they returned with their third full length studio production, "Phantom Ships", which was released towards the end of 2014.

It doesn't take all that long to decide which context to place this band in, at least as they appear in 2014. Opening epic length creation Life doesn't use all that long to present us with sounds, moods and atmospheres that reminds perhaps more than a little bit of classic 80's era Marillion, and while they don't hone in and focus on that particular sound throughout the material remains accessible, compelling and melodic throughout the album. Initially with something of a typical neo-progressive vibe to it, but also with gentler details reminding of bands like Camel and some spirited keyboard maneuvers that at least for me makes me think of late 70's and early 80's Eloy. Third track Burned is a tighter, harder edged excursion into those realms, with a classic and compelling guitar riff and organ combination leading the way, in this case with less of a direct comparison at hand in terms of references for me, and the following instrumental Beautiful River is another somewhat harder for me to give a direct reference on to any specific band. This latter also comes across as a creation that, at least to some extent, heralds a change on this production as a whole.

The second half of this CD, starting with Now That You're Gone, presents us with a band that appears to know their way around the various phases of progressive rock giants Genesis. In three compositions they explore quite nicely some of the typical moods and atmospheres fans of Genesis will find to be intimately familiar, albeit void of the complexities and more focused on staying compelling and accessible. The epic length title track Phantom Ships also includes sections sporting more intricate keyboard arrangements however, of a kind an nature that should please also the more dedicated fans of old school symphonic progressive rock. This latter crowd should, presumably, also appreciate the inclusion of a nifty, dramatic classical symphonic orchestra interlude around the halfway stage of this creation. Final song Rinascimento isn't quite as striking, a dual acoustic guitar piece, calm and well controlled, but it functions quite nicely as a relaxing lead-out marking the end of the journey we have partaken.

Those fond of accessible, melodic progressive rock should have a field day with this album. Perhaps not a production that will be heralded for it's novel take on progressive rock, nor one that will be chosen as an example of a band treading new ground or breaking genre conventions, but if solid, quality compelling progressive rock in the manner of bands such as Fish-era Marillion, IQ and Pendragon is what you're looking for, Navigator will provide you with just that on this album.

Review by steelyhead

3 stars This is the third spin I put this CD to. There's nothing remarkable on It, nothing hideous too. It is simply OK. And It is strange because there's all the elements there from the right amount of Mellotron and the no lead guitar to speak of ( a good thing sometimes).

Of course You will notice some different hidden influences Rinascimento (Mike Oldfield), Phantom Ships (Genesis) and some IQ specially on the ballads but overall there's no grandeur, no big plans.

If You receive the CD as a gift, keep It (my case) otherwise I advise to go to the originals. A solid 3 stars.

Review by PH

5 stars NAVIGATOR have been absent from the scene for eight years. But now, to celebrate their return, Marcangelo Perricelli, Rob Thurman, Michael Soro - all together with new fellow, Rick Catanese - united for the group's third wayfaring. The material on CD 'Phantom Ships' displays explicit sympho prog characteristics, and extended almost 66 minutes. The album kicks off with a 17+ minute epic 'Life', embracing the varying time signatures and complex arrangements. Beside ambitious blocks of power, there is a plenty of soft interludes. As pipe organs combine with guitar licks, pulsating bass and solid drums keep everything to move along. Tremendous musicianship is accompanied by the vocals. Utilizing his soulful voice, Marcangelo Perricelli creates a special aura. The second track, 'Open Air', sounds completely different than the rest of the bunch. It's a sort of enjoyable British neo-progressive style. This composition wouldn't have been out of place on any Jadis release. Rob Thurman provides the lead singing here. Next up, 'Burned', which appears to pay some homage to rather aggressive intensity. Halfway through the song, heavy parts change places with a gentle intermission. Then, we have a nifty instrumental 'Beautiful River', where Michael Soro leans towards Joe Satriani ('Not Of This Earth' period). To keep a mellow pace, Navigator segues into graceful signature of 'Now That You're Gone'. This pearl starts with a gentle sequence to get into balladic mode full of sincerity and passion. Most closely, it resembles classic Genesis, whilst floaty traces of Pink Floyd can be heard in purposeful soloing. Another instalment is finely crafted 'Snow Angel', a feel going back to Kansas. The band follows this up with a title track, 'Phantom Ships', incorporating a blend of drifting bliss and grating feedback. The versatility is brimming with a bevy of twists and turns, dynamics and rich melodies, topped by Marco Perricelli who gives a meaning to the lyrical content. The atmospheric magnitude gradually changes to become proggy in nature, bringing to my mind the 70's Genesis, Rush, Spock's Beard and Transatlantic. The CD ends on a short instrumental, 'Rinascimento', clocking in only 2 minutes. It's a real showcase for Michael Soro's approach. The delicate guitar lines fit nicely in between Steve Hackett and Steve Howe. Just a wise decision to wind up the excellent album, feeling at ease... Welcome back, Navigator!!!

Review by progrules
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Ok, right on with Volume two I would say while we're at it. And immediately with first tones of first song I can feel the twin idea of the concept. It's indeed music in the same sound and style as Volume One made a few years earlier. I wonder if the whole idea would have come out better if they had made it as a double album. We'll never know but it's not that important anyway...

Call to Conscience is a very fine opener indeed, energetic and melodic, accessible without being too poppy. Navigator is certainly not a downright example of prog but in the end they are justifiably included in the Archives I feel. Next ones Feeding Ground and The Path are suddenly much more spacey and give the release a more progressive status. The album goes on roughly in the same style as second and third track. What volume two has in common with no.1 is the equal standard and it makes Navigator a dependable band which means if you like first track (style and sound) you can easily go for the album because there is nothing that will disappoint you later on. Maybe there are no extremely pleasant surprises either but you can't have it all, can you.

Again the overall verdict is quite positive. Navigator is simply a good, at times very good neoband and the ReEvolution releases are worthwhile to go for if you are a neo devotee. If you're more of a die hard progger you'd better pass on with Navigator. All in all I like what I hear with both Volumes and it's hard to pick a winner so also with Volume two I will go for the three stars as Navigator is not indispensable prog. But it's always worthy to be checked out. 3,2 also for ReEvolution Volume two.

Prog Reviewer

3 stars Navigator's debut ReEvolution Volume One has 4 ratings (all 5 stars!) and no reviews so far. High time to shine a light on here. Let's see if we're dealing with a masterpiece or anywhere near. I will do things in the logical order for there's also a Volume two and that one is next up.

This USA neoband was formed in the late nineties and came up with this idea to write a sort of twin album, not as a doubler but in two different releases. Part one appears to be a very acceptable experience all in all. What strikes me is there are no poor fillers and neither superb highlights. Third song Capacities is the only stand out track with very good guitar in fourth minute followed by near excellent keyboard play for over a minute. This is the only song that deserves a score over 3,5* (3,7).

Alas the rest is much less, somewhere between 3 and 3,5 stars for all other 10. Pretty equal in quality, that's for sure. Summarized I would say the execution is good/great and the Gary Brooker-like vocals are very much ok as well. Only downside of Navigator is the songwriting. It's not poor really but it's not great either. If they would improve on this it could be a four star case in the future. Let's see with their successor, Volume two... Three stars for now (3,2).

3 stars Well I think I'm the first one to make a review for this album.I bought this cd at last year Prog in the Park (NAVIGATOR was the first band to play).I was impress good guitar good keys and a nice voice.A nice blend of symphonic-neo prog with a touch of maybe hard rock (they remind me of HAMADRYAD=SAFE IN CONFORMITY).Call to Conscience and Through a Scheme are very good songs and there are a few good instrumental pieces too.It's not essential to your collection but it is a very good addition.3.5 stars POTS
Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition.
