3 stars From the good old Germany comes POVERTY'S NO CRIME,a typically German prog metal band!They have already some excellent albums releases,and this SAVE MY SOUL makes no exception!It's a correct and quite attractive album that will plenty satisfie only PNC fans and those who like prog metal with a modern touch!The production is excellent and there are some interesting ideas delivered by some talented musicians!I strongly believe that one of the aces of the band,if not the major one is the marvelous vocals produced by Volker Walsemann ,he is extremelly talented and has a particular voice,easily recognisable!Musically speaking,the album can be compared with other similar from bands like VANDEN PLAS,MAJESTIC and many others!What is quite dissapointing about POVERTY'S NO CRIME is the fact that they don't really explode on any album,the band is making the same mayonnaise with the same verified ingredients,but doesn't bring anything spectacular or positive on any new album!They prefere not to risk anything and in a way that's good,because the fans get what they expect fom PNC!All the songs are at the same level of creavity and inspiration,the musical structures are strong and well defined,the musicianship is high and the musicians performants!Inspired solos,great vocal lines and a solide rhythm section too!So,be prepared for something pleasant,nice and well done,but nothing more!3,5 STARS for something well done and satisfying for any typically European prog metal fan!
