3 stars With their new, self produced, CD Turquoise is as far from prog folk as it can be. There is not a single acoustic guitar in the whole album. I don´t have their 2005 release, but Futura is very different from their debut self titled CD of 2002. Now they have a new singer and another keyboards player. The sound has almost nothing to do with their brilliant start. Ok, I think they were much more a neo prog group than anything else. Today the band still sounds pretty much neo, but the music is heavier, bordering sometimes the prog metal bounderies, but no quite. There are some eletronic and gothic elements here and there too. The last three tracks reminds me the softer side of bands like Within Temptation or Epica.

I really liked the CD, although Futura is a very short one, almost an EP (35 minutes in all). It is difficult to see what they´re aiming at with such little offering. But at least all the songs are good, varied, well played, show some personality and Martyna Srocka has a fine voice, strong and melodic at the same time. you can tell the musicians are skilled and the production is quite good. I really hope this band has found a style and keep on that track. I´m looking forward to hear their next release. Surely they have the chops and the talent to grow a lot more. Promising. 3,5 stars.
