3 stars Prognosis 18 opens with a top three for me in BIG BIG TRAIN's "Kingmaker". I just really like the sound of this band and the vocals. The big surprise for me on this compilation is NEKTAR's "Desolation Valley". Now I didn't remember at first that this was actually an old track from "A Tab In The Ocean" although this is a newer version.The surprise is the fact I haven't heard anything i've liked from this band after their first two studio albums.So thinking this was a new track left me in shock because I actually liked it.The mystery became clear though when I realized this is a track from "A Tab In The Ocean". A top three.

CCLR is different and by that I mean not so good at first but then it grew on me so... COMEDY OF ERRORS offers up an appealing number in "The Student Prince".They just do a good job here with interesting lyrics too.

MOTORPSYCHO gives us a live version of "Wishing Well".This is excellent. It's like they keep everything restrained yet it's powerful. PHI YAAN-ZEK is another tune i'd call interesting. It's got some variety that's for sure.

SCALE THE SUMMIT's "Gallows" is a heavy instrumental that i'm giving my final top three spot to. SPIRITS BURNING's "Internal Detective" is an instrumental as well and a good one.

ATRIUM ends it but not in style. I'm not a fan of the vocals at all on this one.
