3 stars Is very difficult to talk about EGOBAND without comparing with MARILLION. Actually to the first track of the disk he didn't remind me a lot the band mentioned above, in fact, he reminded me plenty some passages of the band THE ENID, for his more symphonic approach. But starting from the second track in before was clear to strong influence of MARILLION. Until this point, I don't make any objection , because I don't have none prejudice with bands that try to base his work based on a single influence. The one that didn't please me is the form used by the band to "chain " the several passages that form the same music (all with a duration average above the 7 min.), so to speak, they don't get to form a relationship that does amongst themselves with that the melody flows naturally and they seem divisions actually with almost any relationship amongst themselves, the one that does seem that there are two different music, where actually just one exists! In that way in spite of the disk to be filled of great and beautiful vocal and instrumental passages, he is not easy of being assimilated by the listener, what most of the time is gotten by bands that present a much more complex sound, however they make this connection among the most different musical passages with mastery!!! My rate is 3 stars, more for the good isolated ideas, that for the group of the work in itself.
