4 stars The American band IZZ's debut CD contains a mixture of styles. Their experimental progressive rock is mixed with Celtic, classical, funk, fusion, jazz and Latin with memorable melodies. The music is a blend of The BEATLES, DREAM THEATER, EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER, EVERYTHING BUT THE GIRL, GENESIS, IQ, JETHRO TULL, KING CRIMSON, MARILLION, Paul McCARTNEY, PINK FLOYD, The POLICE, RITUAL, RUSH, SANTANA, SPOCK'S BEARD, STEELY DAN, TALKING HEADS and YES. Their composing skills are very good and the CD contains such songs as: - the opening "Endless Calling" - the catchy and varied "I Get Lost" - the folky "Lornadoone" - the ballad "She Walked Out The Door" - the intriguing "Assurance" - the commercial "Take It Higher" - the instrumental "Double Bass" - the acoustic and poppy "Just A Girl" - "Meteor" - "Razor" - The closing epic "Where I Belong". All in all it's a very strong debut although the production leaves a little to wish for. Recommended!
