4 stars This a very nice and enjoyable album,which proves that prog music still has many beautiful days ahead!THE COSMIC REMEDY is what we can call a multinational band,and shows the fact that music is an international,universal language!If we must find a category for this album,I would like to call it vintage prog rock with some folk and world music touches!The most remarcable fact about this debut album is the impressively mature song writing!Definitelly,AKOS BOGATI BOKOR is a great composer and knows perfectly well how to build a strong structure of a song!The vocal parts are impressive and fit perfectly well with the music-Tico is trully a revelation!!The girl voice reminds me about TORI AMOS a little,but the overall and general impression is that THE COSMIC REMEDY is a proud follower to giant prog giants like GENESIS,GENTLE GIANT and even the pop icons THE BEATLES!Yes,and this superbe vintage prog perfume is what makes this album so enjyable and easily to be digged!It's music that comes from the soul,without any other intention-only to please the listener and to bring him into another dimension!The musicians on the album are excellent-a special note for the very diverse and catchy drumming work provided by Kimmo Porsty from THE SAMURAI OF PROG ,among other projects-and the tasty and clean flute interventions played by Gabor -wonderful indeed!Musically speaking,the album is structured into 4 different chapters,quite different one to the other-there's definitelly a diversity and a strong musical identity of each composition!Midtempo songs,sometimes a jazzy vibe and the feeling of listening something well done and beautiful!Strong 4 stars for an impressive album,great crystal clear production too and a quite weak cover unfortunatelly-that's the only minor minus of this superbe album!
