5 stars Under a new sign is the second album from this solid Dutch neo-prog band and in my opinion it is by far their best achievement. I played the album over and over again and I loved every track. The synth sounds by main man Gerben Klazinga are as transparent and beautiful as can be, the guitar sounds are all perfectly chosen and I so much loved the huge sound of the Rickenbacker bass and the Moog Taurus pedals ! Just check out the guitar doubled riff in "Mastermind". I also loved the contributions by Joop Klazinga on his flute and recorders. It makes a perfect counterbalance to the solid, almost metal based guitar/bass riffs. Magnum opus on the album is the second part of "A Different Man". With over 13 minutes of music, this is a true symphonic masterpiece, full of fantastic strong guitar and keyboard themes.

Under a new sign, by Knight Area is a great opportunity to get to know one of the best Dutch prog bands of this moment and I won't hesitate to call it a masterpiece!
