3 stars FIREBALLET - Night On Bald Mountain (3,25 / 5)

This is a rather good material, with some nice melodies (especially opening track "Les cathédrales ", that remindes me the beggining of 'Theme One' by VDGG). But only good, not essential. After hearing this I hardly remember some delighted music motifs...Musicans are rather good, but I had a strenght felling that they had a really great potential and they didn't menage to show it at all. I' ve got my two favourite numbers on this album. First, mentioned 'Les cathédrales ' with some good melody, nic piece of organ, mellotron and fluete. Final, title number of the album, is the nearly 20 minute godd example of programmed music. I want describe it, because for me it is a great mix of heared already stuff (but still quite nice). In the begining its some kind like a Gryphon/Modry Efekt light and smooth crescendo. Then we hear majestic organs (vide ELP/Wakeman), that with light vocal brings us to the end. Fireballet didn't devdeloped their own style of prog rock. As I hear in this debut album, all 5 tracksare quite. Good collages from mentioned band, but nothing more after all.
