Please, we can't work without full tracks.

Sounds good but we need more info.

Hi . 

I listened to this album during last 48 hours. Very good sound and fit to my taste. They are a Prog Rock band and I found some Symphonic Prog elements in their music but I'm not sure about their sub genre.
I'm sure Ivan will talk about it and I wait for his comment about it.

Just checked them

1.- Son of Man: Hard Rock not Prog
2.- Boy and Rhyme: Floydish, reminds me of "Mother" and a bit from Tommy by The Who.
3.- Discovery: Again Tommy inspired
4.- The Proof: Nice ballad...Proggish at the most
5.- E Pluribus Unum: Reminds me STRONGLY of STYX
6.- Mother's Lament: Rock with Prog elements
7.- The Odyssey: Again that Styx sound.
8.- Theme and Variation: AOR Rock (Late 70's blend of Prog and mainstream)
9.- Resolution: Seems like taken from Tommy.

Sorry Symphonic it isn't, I wouldn't recommend them to Crossover...Prog Related at the best.

Sounds as if they had taken parts from Tommy, The Wall and Paradise Theater to make a conceptual album.

Good album anyway.

Iván

Agree, very much a prog-related rock opera with garage elements and strong Styx influence
