3 stars 25 Yard Screamer isa british heavy prog band little known outside their country.. Cassandra from 2007 is their third album I guess. The neo prog category , how is puted here on page is missleading, this album has nothing to do with neo prog, really, this is heavy prog with some prog metal elements thrown in, I can't trace any Marillion influences here or of any other neo prog band. Only 4 pieces, wich 2 are very long and the best from the album. Opening track Blacklight is something between heavy prog a la Rush with prog metal a la Fates Warning, is a nice well developed piece with tempo changes and good vocals from Nick James. The middle of the album, those two shorter pieces are forgetable and nothing to talk about. The last tune the longest , the title track Cassandra is the best from here, 30 min of good passages, odd time signature, nice vocals and good musicianship, remind me a lot of Fates Warning, more recent period around Disconnected. All in all, this is not a fantastic album, is decent and nothing more. 3 stars.
