4 stars I am really enjoying this album, and repeated listens is where the value starts to show itself. The progressive composition treat is track 3, Barbarella's lover, with a stellar groove that builds and builds while showcasing the talents of musicians. The first two tracks are also very good while adding splash of pop. The first track, The Voice of Beauty Drowned, is built around harmonies similar to what you may hear from Asia. However, weighing in over ten minutes you never feel like it is a pop song, and it still has layers of proggy goodness with fantastic musicianship. After the melodies settle in, you can focus on the longer composition with stellar keyboards and a strong bass line. Track 2 The Fallen Angel starts out as a mellower song, but is longest track on the album at 15:35. It has several changes and a trombone solo to keep it interesting, and a breakdown part around 10:15 that sounds like something from Simple Minds. Overall, this is a strong debut album from Galasphere 347. They have a cool name and excellent album artwork, and there is so much for any prog lover to like. It is a fantastic release and I look forward to their next album.
