5 stars Have you ever been tired of Prog? No, I really mean it! Tired of colourful sleeves, long epics with various shiftings and changes, crafty solos and top-notch drumming? Never? You’re lucky then. Personally I sometimes feel worn out by another pile of CDs of that kind (especially Modern Symphonic albums, which are mostly the same all the time). So, when I’ve chanced to pick this one with an “urban still life” on the cover, I didn’t expected much (it was unpacked more than for a month!). Besides they’re from Japan. I’m not familiar much with Japanese Prog, as it’s mostly avant-related (honorable exception are the Gods of Post-Rock - MONO). Anyway, I gave it a spin. Then another one. And one more again…

My first thought was “take MAGENTA and replace the YES element with CAMEL one”. I also noticed UK-like jazzy patterns and fiery violin solos. But when it came to instrumentals, I’d rather compare INTERPOSE+ with fusion bands (take IQ and force them to play MAHAVISHNU’s stuff – something of that kind)! But any comparing is lame – INTERPOSE+ mix all the abovementioned elements in their own way, supplying GENESIS+UK-like epics with tender female vocals and maturity of performance. Please, don’t repeat my mistake – DO NOT MISS THIS CD! Highly recommended!
