In last 2 months I found many great "Classic Prog" albums. Some of them released by new bands like "The Ben Cameron Project" and some released by professional musicians like "Rob Reed". Last week I got "Echo Us" new album:II:XII, └ PRIORI MEMORIA╔. In first listening I found that "Normal" album with Modern sound or Experimental stuff BUT after more listens I found that "Classic Prog" album!
I dont want to be Negative but I face to another "Mike Oldfield" copy album. We have a similar discus about Rob Reed's "Sanctuary". Copy or Tribute or Homage or .... I dont want to repeat that again but one different thing! forced me to start similar post.
 In "Sanctuary" you can see Oldfield's compose,arrangement,touch and ... very clear and Rob point to this in his interviews but in "II:XII, └ PRIORI MEMORIA╔" you can see musician's try to hide this. I mean Echo Us try to use Oldfield's Elements and hide these elements with sounding or ....
Rob used early 70's Oldfield's elements but Echo Us use wide range of Oldfield's musical accents from 70 till now. You can find Mike Oldfield's career in "only" one album!! From his (mike) guitar sound and touch to his meditation albums like "Sphere" or his World music like "Songs from Distant earth". If you are a Mike Oldfield's huge fan (like me),You can listen to this album and enjoy but this cant be a positive point for Echo Us. This is a "Nostalgic position!" for Mike's fans
