4 stars This excellent and underrated German band, very influenced by RENAISSANCE, did the best progressive rock in the worst time. While the Annie Haslan band forgot its magic during '80s (example, the terrible "Camera Camera"), REBEKKA created "Phoenix", a wonderful album in the best symphonic tradition.

"Phoenix" is very related to the creative and complex side of RENAISSANCE (but not a copy) and there's nothing to envy from great albums as "Novella" or "Scheherazade". REBEKKA achieved a fantastic, very elaborated and atmospherical album, with lots of non- typical percussions plus sax and harpsicord. Marion Weldert voice is magnificent (related to Annie Haslan; some pieces are sung in English, some in German).

Highlights are "Swan Song", "Phoenix" and "Floating Dawn", but -really- seven tracks are melodically outstanding and extremely well played.

This only REBEKKA production is highly recommended for all progressive ears, and a must for RENAISSANCE fans.
