2 stars I really don't understand why this band is considerate eclectic prog. except some symphonic parts; there is just a lot of melodic rock and pop music. And all the albums seem as one. Vocal parts are quite good, but to repetitive and with no fluctuation, no feelings, except some melancholy. The keyboard plays just simple atmospheric notes (with a few exceptions), guitar is also to melodic. drums and bass are nothing spectacular... I really don't understand why anybody should listen this mediocre music. there are plenty more bands that make melodic/symphonic rock better and interesting. But eclectic??? For what? A mixture of melodic rock and pop music? Some of their first albums could be considerate as symphonic prog, and it worth to listen them, but after Octomberon and the "death" of the progressive mainstream rock movement, maybe influenced by their record label, the music become to easy to listen. An opinion ...
