4 stars Any Colour You Like (as long as it is Pink)

Tremendously entertaining Prog album from Kerzner, a sort of Alan Parsons for the new millenium. It is impossible to get away from the Pink Floyd influences painted with broad brush strokes across every inch of the album so if that is going to irritate you then steer clear. There is very little originality in terms of the music but sonically Kerzner is a wizard at finding interesting ways to elevate the (relatively) mundane into a neat set piece or tour de force. There's also a who's who of Prog luminaries involved including the ubiquitous Steve Hackett and Francis Dunnery plus cameos by Keith Emerson and Colin Edwin. It's an unabashed slice of Prog popcorn and should appeal to anyone who can get over the fact that it wallows joyfully in its influences.

Normally I would give 3 stars to this kind of thing but it's done so well and sounds so good that it gets the 4 star salute here.
