Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Estonian multi-instrumentalist Indrek Patte draws in a range of guest artists and friends to perform on this neo-prog album with hints of Genesis, Marillion, and Pendragon being the main influences I hear - but given a unique twist thanks to Patte's keyboard work, which in places draws a lot on the style Tangerine Dream adopted by the early 1980s to add a range of textures not often heard in neo-prog material. You Stay With Me, with its mingling of heavy guitar, accessible power pop/AOR vocals, and neo-prog keyboard work, is perhaps the track which encapsulates the album's approach the best. Four stars.

Review by Matti
Collaborator Neo-Prog Team

4 stars Patte lists many idols in prog: Genesis, Yes, Gentle Giant, Marillion, Dream Theater and Neal Morse. And one really can hear them all in his music. There's not a single detail that would give away his nationality (Estonian). The production is excellent, and the arrangements (by Patte) are also sophisticated. Co-musicians play e.g. flute, cello and saxophone, while Patte himself plays keyboards, 12-string and percussion. this album almost feels like a tribute to his idols. The two first songs are very Genesis-like ('Learn to Live' even actually copies the arrangement ideas of 'A Trick of the Tail', but does so in a pleasant style), the third reminds me of IQ, and in 'One Way' he clearly nods to Gentle Giant, especially with multilayered vocals.

Towards the end there come some less interesting songs that feel like 80's commercial hard rock. Also Patte's pretentious voice (somewhere between Neal Morse and Little Steven) helps that association. Ther long title track in the end includes a section in the lyrics ("all that you...") very reminiscent of Floyd's 'Eclipse', otherwise the track has the ambitious pomposity of a Pendragon epic. So, as you guessed, not very original work, but quite enjoyable nevertheless, if you like Genesis-influenced neo-prog. There are some Christian overtones in the album but definitely not too emphasised.

4 stars Estonian composer and instrumentalist Indrek PATTE is apparently one of the veterans of the local Estonian rock scene, being a member of or involved with a number of bands dating all the way back to the 70's. "Celebration" marks his debut as a solo artist, and was released through the Estonian progressive rock oriented label Strangiato Records in 2011.

Indrek Patte's solo debut "Celebration" comes across as a production that celebrates 70's oriented progressive and pomp rock both, featuring compositions of a purebred symphonic art rock character just as much as numbers with more of a straightforward, AOR oriented expression. Fans of artists such as Spock's Beard and Ambrosia might be something of a key audience for this CD, although I'd imagine that quite a few with a soft spot for the likes of Genesis might find this one to be of interest too.

Review by Jihnik1958

5 stars Do you like the band Genesis period 1971 - 1976's? If you like it, then this CD is for you. From the first notes we plunge into the atmosphere of Genesis: first key in the spirit of Tony Banks, then the powerful sound of the period Lamb Lies Down On Brodway.

Mature, sound and competent work to lovers sound of the seventies. Each song echoes that of Nursery Crime, then suddenly from Selling England By The Pound and absolutely as if not to the point of And Then There Were Three ..!! But! All of this is glued together very harmoniously and efficiently. Sometimes there is a feeling that you listen to your favorite brand new disk group GENESIS. Collected on one disc all the work group for the period of 1970-1980. No secondary and cloning. All the material is unique and of high grade. I am sure that fans of Genesis are very happy to have in their COLLECTIONS this wonderful masterpiece Symphonic Prog old school from England!
