3 stars Wow I must say I was surprised after listening to Pavlovīs Dog. Pampered Menial is actually pretty good prog rock with nice mellotron moments and even some hard rock riffing some places. Flute is also played on some of the songs.

The real treat here though is singer David Surkampīs vocals which is just crazy. The last time I heard a vocal this crazy was when I listened to Airlord. The vocal styles of the two singers canīt be compared though. David Surkamp is really a great singer, try and imagine Geddy Lee inhaling helium before singing and on top of that David Surkamp has an extreme vibrato in his voice. What an original singing style. Totally over the top.

The music isnīt too bad either even though itīs not the best prog rock I ever heard. Music wise this is a pretty average prog rock album, but those vocals !!!

This is a sure 3 star album. I have to warn you though. Some of you will hate David Surkampīs vocals because they are so extreme but on the other hand there will be people who like me will love this strange voice.

UMUR | 3/5 |
