Prog Reviewer
3 stars After checking out this first substantial release by Finnish Nurkostam I can subscribe Keishiro's review just about completely mainly where the influences are concerned. King Crimson is indeed detectable same as Wigwam, I would like to add Sigur Ros and a bit of Anathema and that should be about it.

The dreamy and creepy atmosphere that characterizes Sigur Ros' music is also to be found on this release, contrary to their short debut. Nurkostam obviously have found their musical destiny in the meantime and chose the complex, inaccessible and dark road within prog.

So this could be the cup of tea of many hardcore proggers and I would certainly advise them to have a listen when they run into this output. Neo prog is obviously the wrong category for Nurkostam if this is to be their road in the future. That is if you expect anything like Marillion, IQ or Pendragon. Mentioned references are just about the opposite of neo prog I strongly believe. So beware if you are an old fashioned neo devotee. If you like the bands I mentioned in the first paragraph though I would give this III of Dreamers a chance. Three stars (3,5) nonetheless (despite my different taste) because this is truly progressive and interesting enough to go for.
