4 stars Egdon Heath - gone but not forgotten

The forth album of Egdon Heath from 1996 and the second that i own with Killing silence, Nebula is a step forward in EH's catalog. Why, because is maybe the most matture work they've done and is very well played and composed. Well here we can see a little bit of AOR sound incorporate in their music but this is not a bad thing, still strong. With a new vocalist Maurits Kalsbeek, Egdon Heath trys and most of the time succeded to bring something new in neo prog scene with this album. The sound is to me lighter than on Killing silence, that dark atmosphere from No second faust (the opening track from Killing silence) is gone replaced by a more tighter but lighter sound, just check out Hail To Your Heart or Head in the sand, i swear i'm listning something a la Magnum or Iq from the '90's but in the end is ok. Every piece has a same level so all are good, on some of them them even can hear symphonic orchestration combined with neo elements that gives to the music a new dimension. Less inspiring than Killing silence but awesome again. Still underrated album in my opinion, still strong after excellent Killing silence (well is another album in betwen this two, but that's another story). 3.5 stars rounded to 4. Maybe not recommended but worth to check out if you are a prog devotee.
