Matter of Taste biography
MATTER OF TASTE bridges two styles of prog. They skillfully combine neo prog with prog metal. This band offers a refined, precious Progressive rock based upon the clear, developed, dynamic vocals of the singer and the grandiloquence of the instrumental passages. Light symphonic that can be compared to ALAN PARSONS PROJECT or later ASIA around "Astra". But also some bits and pieces from TOTO, KANSAS and contrasted rock of early MARILLION. The result is interesting and will appeal to fans of both styles.

Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars Austrians Matter of Taste were established in 1996 in St. Peter am Ottersbach, near the Austrian-Slovenian borders, by multi-instrumentalist Franz Wetzelberger, bringing together no less than eight instrumentalists and seven lead- and backing vocalists.His aim was to perform his own compositions in an official form, mixing Classic Symphonic Rock with Melodic Rock and Classical Music.The first album of the group was entitled ''Chateau obscure'' and was privately released in 1996.

Actually the sound of the band flirts more with Neo Prog than the typical Symphonic Rock sound, though some nice string parts and grandiose piano themes are present.Listening to the first few tracks you are ready to face an excellent Prog release.Long, elaborate arrangements with expressive vocals, strong guitar lines, hooking melodies, bombastic synths and a fair amount of more Classical-inspired parts offer a great experience of energetic Neo Prog along the lines of INES, CASINO or AMON RA.After the interesting ballad ''Soon'', which sounds like a mix of Hard Rock and Rock Opera, the quality of the album seems to drop a bit with Matter of Taste sounding more like a AOR group.''Nightkiller'' is absolutely dull with forgettable music and horrendous vocal parts, while ''Meadows of fauns'' sounds instrumentally a bit plastic and closer to DON AIREY's ''K2'' album.''Resurrection song'' is a decent closer.Based on Beethoven's melodies, the tracks offers a delicate, romantic atmosphere with warm vocals before the groovy ending, characterized by nice organ, guitar melodies and piano.

What started as a real winner, ended up being a rather incosistent album.Still the final taste is quite positive with the first few tracks being from fine to excellent.A recommended obscurity.

Review by Tonny Larz

2 stars German outfit: Matter of taste are in the powerprog/popprog vein a la Boston,Styx & ark. As such they are quite capable of delivering. Its..just that..however good they are.... you´ve heard it all before....the power chords..the vocal arrangements...the soloing ...indeed their nice ideas of how to make a decent pop/power record...everythings here. So...why do you need this...well...you DONT !! I just grabbed it in a 2 hand bin. Its an OK purchase...just dont expect any musically bright horizon. There you have it... or rather i have it..ha..ha....as you dont own it yet!! Only if you ( are a member of - the family of one of the musicians or related to the producer) must !! Havent heard their first......so.......have a nice summer!!!
