Heart of the Matter
3 stars As soon as the thing starts, there you are thinking: "hey, wait a minute, this is too simple for my educated prog palate". And it's relatively simple, yes, but it's loaded with great melodies, and good taste for execution and arrangements too. The subtleties are there anyway, in the form of an agile execution of some intricate fast passages (listen to the opener).

What do you need to know about the influences? There are traits resembling the first Pendragon in the leading vocals, and in certain rhythmic patterns, mainly during the fast pieces.

Final word of advise: I hate recommend an album when each song sounds very similar to the next, but, since this is NOT the case, and you can find a reasonable sense of variety here, go ahead, you may find an amusing listen too.

Heart of the Matter | 3/5 |
