3 stars 3.5 realy

Black Page is a japanese band formed in early '80's in Japan and manage to release a single album so far in 1986 and named Open the next page and re released on CD in 2001 in digipack format. I was very pleasent surprised about this band, a combination of symphonic elements not far from UK fame and some jazzy moments here and there but with an eclectic atmosphere overall. Some pieces I swear were taken from first UK album, same elements , even the drumming is very close to Bruford style , initialy I thought it was a UK cover version, but in the end was a real Black Page tune. Very good are the keybords and guitar arrangements, very '80's in aproach but very strong for sure. So, I will give 3-3.5 stars, a good towards great album, very unnoticed and quite underrated by many listners. Very hard to find album , but not impossible. Worth some spins from time to time. Similar with UK, Deja Vu (the japanese progressive rock) or Outer Limits also from Japan. Good band and unfairly unnoticed
