4 stars My first encounter with Osiris' music was their 1984 album Myths and Legends and I was quite disappointed because I expected at least some typical middle eastern sounds from this band coming from Bahrain after all. But there were no such sounds on that one. Just another average neo band was what I heard. But with their recent output Visions from the Past I finally got what I hoped for.

This very output is at last the real deal you might say. This is the folky neo prog I expected all along from the band. Not only that, it's also very original and inspired what I hear on this release. And it's varied as well: long songs, short interludes as well as middle length stuff. Different sounds and styles is what I detect and all done in a nice flowing way, great coherence !

I will have to do the Myths and Legends review still but it will be a palish one I feel resulting in max three stars I'm sure. But this most recent album to date is a different ball game. This is the opposite of disappointing, this is a breath of fresh air and as Ken already stated: what a come back ! It's highly recommended for those who are intrigued by neo prog from Bahrain with a true folky signature. It's a definite four stars. Cheers, Osiris !
