3 stars I was told this is a Neo Prog masterpiece ;)

I like Neo very much despite everything it has done to me. This time it has brought me a nice CD by a Dutch band KNIGHT AREA (said to be GENESIS-influenced). I won’t call them GENESIS clones because they’re obviously not; they are rather ARENA/IQ/ FROST soul mates, they play the same way accessible and hard-edged Neo Prog with short but varied songs supplied with wonderful performance and sound. To be honest, nothing special – this is the time when personal tastes speak. I had the same feeling about recently reviewed new GALAHAD album – everything is on its right place but it doesn’t click on me EMOTIONALLY. As on GALAHAD, there are few good songs (and one is very good - “Mortal Brow”) for me, and I know, that hundreds of progheads will enjoy this album a lot; much more than I did. And do you know what? This is GREAT!!! This is great when you have an opportunity to try, an ability to choose and make preferences. This is what it’s all about in Prog: listen, enjoy and then tell us how do you feel it. Recommended!!!
