2 stars The one release by Even Horses is a mixed bag, although it is certainly progressive enough to warrant their inclusion here at the Prog archives.

Instrumentally, they are very good. There are twists and turns galore. Explorations into odd time signatures, odd chord structures and ventures into various different forms of music. Mostly, though, they play somewhere in between heavy prog and metal. The guitar by Marc Imann is tasty enough, and Thomas Janzon is certainly talented on the chapman stick.

The band's downfall, however, is singer Martin Garden. His voice, at first, sounds a bit like Colin Carter of Flash. But his voice also has a shrillness that comes through, and after just a few minutes of listen, I find him unbearable. It gets even worse when he gets overly theatrical in some of the songs (I really can't stand to listen repeatedly, so I won't go back and tell you which tracks).

It's a shame, too, because without the vocals, this could be quite nice.
