3 stars No time for rest for the five-piece Neo Prog veterans from London, as Landmarq will enter the studio, preparing for a sophomore comeback after the questionable result of ''Solitary witness''.The new album would be named ''Infinity parade'', starting a tradition by the band including always a track named after the previous album's title, eventually released on the Dutch label SI Music in 1993.

What the listener was aware of in ''Solitary witness'' now takes some flesh in ''Infinity parade'': following a band that was always capable of more than what was taped.With the new album Landmarq finally deliver some great performances, memorable tunes and , above all, take advantage of Damian Wilson's voice at a higher degree.Especially the first and last couple of tracks breeze this fantastic British Neo Prog air at its best. Compositions with fantastic lyrical moments, dramatic atmospheres, clear production, mindblowing solos and emotional moments.The band seems more tight and the tracks are more adventurous and conveincing.There is also a 16-min. grand epic produced by the band, entitled ''Ta'Jiang'', which is also pretty solid and contains all of the above characteristics.''Landslide'' and ''Tailspin'' suffer a bit from the flaws of the previous release.Tracks that have something to offer but never take off to the level of the rest of the material, sounding a bit flat and mechanical.

To this point of their career Landmarq managed finally to shake things a bit and return with an album equal to the names of their experienced line-up.But there is always a sense that they could have done it even better.Still ''Infinity parade'' contains two or three killer tracks, enough to label the album as ''strongly recommended'', especially to fans of Classic British Neo Prog...3.5 stars.
