Symphonic Prog

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars I am listening to this album as a preparation for a couple of hours with their DVD I got from their record label some months ago (sadly neglected by me until this weekend). Just to find out what this band is all about.

This is their second album and the first one with vocals. The music is somewhere in the Genesis and Camel area. Tempus Fugit too is a good reference point for those who knows that band. Sadly, too few here does that so Genesis and Camel have to do. The music is symphonic prog, in other words. But there is also strong hints of the local music scene. This is a South American symphonic prog album. Add some space rock too and you get it. In particular on the long instrumental parts which is pretty spacy. The vintage hammond organ sound is pretty good throughout. This album has the good 1970s feel over it.

Quality wise....... I am not as sold on this as the other reviewers here. Although the music is good to very good at places, it never really takes off into the stratosphere of the prog rock universe. Although I likes it far better the tenth time I am listening to it than the first time I sunk my teeth into this album, this album does not have any killer tracks and nothing else than a pleasant sound. That too me is not a great album. But then again, this album is so good that it is well worth checking out.

Good, but not great.

3 stars (and some decimals too)
