4 stars FLAMBOROUGH HEAD from Holland was formed in 1995 and they took their name after a cliff on the East Coast of England. They are playing modern melodic symphonic neo-progressive rock, and their debut CD is a symphonic masterpiece with long beautiful tracks.

The musicians are very tight and their keyboard-based music is reminiscent to bands like CAMEL, EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER, GENESIS, IQ, MARILLION, PENDRAGON, PINK FLOYD, RUSH, SAGA and TWIN AGE. I can't pick any specific track as favourite as all of them are equally good. The songs are the opening "Schoolyard Fantasy", "Wolves at War", "Childscream", the ten-minute title track "Unspoken Whisper", the instrumental "Legend of the Old Man's Tree", the complex 10-minutes "Xymphonia" and the closing epic instrumental track "Heroes". The songs however have a little too much clichés and my least favourite is "Childscream".

If you're into neo-progressive rock I think that the CD is well worth buying, as it's one of the better neo-progressive releases recently. A really impressive debut album although it lacks a little in originality. However I'm looking forward to hear their follow-up. A promising band for the future!
