4 stars Review N 1 Band: Differences Album: The Voyage Label: Si Music (1991) Simply 4

As a member of ProgArchives for many years I decided to write my first review, overcoming my panic because of my poor English language skills.

The first band I chose is Differences, because in my opinion they created one of the best albums of the 80s and which unfortunately was unknown, I guess because it was promoted by a small label (Frizzbee) and then was reissued by SI Music that broke the mid-90 `.

Differences have strong influence of bands like Camel (I recommend listening to the third track of this album, "True or False") also can recognize the influence of bands like Genesis of the era of "Wind and Wuthering" and Novalis.

The structure of the songs is not very complex, but has very good arrangements, typical of bands like Amenophis, Osiris, Rousseau, Coda and Arkus.

The jewel of this album is the penultimate song called "The Melody", a song full of nuances, very melodic guitars and many layers of keyboards.

Recommended as it represents a transition between the symphonic rock of the late 70s and early neoprog 80.

Solid 4 star (8/10)
