2 stars I heard so much about this band on progressive forums that I decided to get one to see for myself. I must say I was disappointed. So I thought it might "grow on me"... but it still doesn't. This is neo-progressive with that typical guitar sound you get with Pendragon albums but also lush keyboards accompanied by melodious flute playing. The songs give you a feeling that they've been stretched and that they don't really have a structure. They do, but there's too much repetition. Cast have decided to sing in English for our American friends (or should I say market). Unfortunately, the singer has problems of pronunciation which is underlined by imperfect English (on a grammatical sense)... Why can't bands just simply stick to their native language which they master ? I might buy another Cast album if they decide to sing in Spanish... As for you, well, you can have a try if mispronunciation and poor English doesn't upset you. I've heard they've changed their lead singer recently.
