Prog Reviewer
4 stars On Fanfare and Fantasy, Comedy of Errors do a decent job of capturing the early Marillion sound - heck, they even have the whole "glum character in a bedroom crammed with symbolic clutter" thing going on with the cover art - but happily this is only one influence on their sound. Jim Johnstone's keyboards not only sound absolutely gorgeous - in fact, the production and engineering on the album is excellent - but also incorporate a wider range of techniques than your typical neo-prog band, allowing Comedy of Errors to explore a wide range of musical territories. Joe Cairney's lead vocals also deserve a nod, showing as they do a flair for dramatic narratives worthy of Peter Gabriel or Fish whilst resisting the temptation to imitate either of them. Along with Galahad and Final Conflict, Comedy of Errors seem to be one of those neo-prog bands who've been slogging along for decades but are only recently flowering into their full potential, so I'll be interested to see where they go from here.
Warthur | 4/5 |
