3 stars Someone I did not know on this site invited me to write something about this album. He must have thought I was Canadian too. I'm a freeking Dutchman! But OK... I gave this record a trie, you can listen to it for free on their website.

I seriously do not like the artwork here. This is no inventation for a record like this! A black cover with the title in white would have been better. This mistake gives an perspective on the album as a whole. These musicians are very good! They play symphonic/progressive rock with jazz influences. The style is to be put between UK and Return to Forever. The band has only two members: one does keyboard and guitars, the other is the rytmic basis of the band. But what's the problem then?

The recording sounds a bit cheap. I wished bands in these days had the same oppertuneties as some talented bands in the '70 had. My advice for WHERE'S THE NINE would be: Find a guitarist and a bassplayer and a good place to play and record this album in a live session withoud public. This would get us rid of the static sound. The music wouldn't only be technically very good but it would also live!

Band like WHERE'S THE NINE give me the feeling that if they recorded the whole during a Pink Floyd-like live amplification set it would have been a four-to-five star performance and recording. The band has got talent to play different and difficult songs that also have a somewhat mysterious vibe.

So... Good musicianship, dissapointing recording. But also: potential! In the future this could become a serious act if a complete band is formed around these two very inspiring musicans! So.. three stars for now, but a positive feeling abound the name of this band. I will remember!
