3 stars My review of Caamora's She is not going to be much different from the other prog reviewers. Many stated that this album contains actually no neo progressive music but is more of a rock opera.

And then I can be brief with this one. I don't like opera so it was a mistake by me to buy it. I was blinded by the fact that Clive Nolan had composed the whole thing and he hardly ever did anything disappointing in his career as far as I'm concerned so I was hoping for something great anyway (like Strangers on a Train for instance). I will have to be more demanding in the future and more critical towards my personal needs where the sort of music or album is concerned.

Does that mean this is a poor album ? Absolutely NOT, it's a piece of art that will please many fans of Rock opera's but alas I'm not one of them. My biggest problem overall is the huge domination of the vocals on this album. I'm a great fan of impressive instrumental contributions so then this aspect is disappointing. Besides this the female contributions are much better than the male and the division in time is almost 50-50 here so half of the singing is not really appreciated by me. The instrumental parts are minimal and solos are hardly there at all and since we're talking about over 100 minutes of music here this doubler is almost torture for me.

This is how it all works on me personally, if I look at this piece of art more objectively It could even be a masterpiece or is at least worthy of four stars. And since my personal (subjective) judgment would probably be two stars I will decide for the average this time because it seems the fairest thing to do here so three stars.
