3 stars As far as I know this is the only album by Group 309, a somewhat pleasant light prog band from Russia. I say light prog because nine of the eleven songs are primarily power ballads, with only bare traces of true progressive rock.

But the other two songs are more impressive. What Are You Waiting For is the lesser of these two songs. But it is a fairly strong piece with unusual time signatures and a compelling structure. The Overture is the strongest song on the album. With heavy keyboards with some fine effects, this song reminds me a bit of some of the better moments from Spock's Beard's "V" album. This song alone makes the album worth owning.

Don't be fooled by the english song titles. The album is sung in Russian. But Andrey Pishchulov's voce is smooth enough that it should make no difference, unless you need to understand what he is singing.

Evolver | 3/5 |
