4 stars Eccentric Orbit from USA, might be considered a well and respected follower of ELP fame, with well known musicians in this bussines who played before in bands like Pye Fyte and A Tiggering Myth. They release so far a single album in 2004 in digi pak format, their second album is still in waiting for almost a year, mainly beacuse of the deummer Mark Cella death, last year in march, but hopes are to be issued soon, check their official page, . The music offered by Eccentric Orbit, is full of great mellotron and bombastic keyboards arrangements, not far from mighty ELP but combined and filled with thier own twists. The most of the parts sound pretty intresting to me, well played and great musicianship. The musicians had enough room to make elaborated music here, each piece is long enough to show how great and profesional they are with culminating point Forbidden Planet with almost 15 min of high class prog, lots of moods and tempo change with mellotron , moog and synthesisers all over the place. In places they remind me besides ELP, with Deja Vu,Ars Nova or Gerard from japan. So a very worthy album, desearves from me 4 stars, has it's moments of greatness for sure, fans of symphonic prog can easely listen to this unknown and yet great band.
