2 stars First solo "album" by the neo-prog hero Clive Nolan!

And I'm writing "album" with quotation marks because this record is not the standard solo release that you are imagine. This is a compilation of two soundtracks that Nolan wrote almost 30 years ago for two independent British films, named Cahersiveen and Old Priest.

So this album has two clear parts, one for each film. Nevertheless, the style of the compositions of very similar, being Cahersiveen romantic and dramatic and Old Priest a bit darker. Neo-Prog fans will be delighted with the typical Nolan melodies in keyboards, but the hearing of this album is however not interesting apart from the curiosity of hearing Nolan trying to ambient these two pictures.

Pictures that after listening their soundtracks, I will surely never try to see.

Best tracks: it's difficult to pick separate songs of these soundtracks, but I must say that I prefer the Old Priest one, where End Credits is maybe my favorite one.

Conclusion: the two soundtracks included in Conflicts sound dated and not really interesting today, being the whole experience rather boring and only recommended for Neo-Prog hounds and Nolan's completists.

My rating: **

The Crow | 2/5 |
