3 stars After a very successful debut album (artistically anyway), their approach is different than on their debut . This is a lot more in the direction taken by Dutch bands Trace and Ekseption ( for those who are not familiar , those groups specialized in re-working the classics with rock instrumentation - one album is fine but they made a whole carreer out of it) but at least here , the credits are due and this could be regarded as a tribute. However, this is weaker IMHO than their debut. Dvorak is my fave classical composer and I was hard up to hear what they had done with Symphony From The New World and this was deceiving.

Nowadays, I would probably avoid such exercise, as I know this can only be deceiving. However to call thisa clone band might be exagerating ..... but if you think well about it for a minute. As I never heard later albums, it is hard for me to know in which they went, but
