3 stars Galahad's first CD is a typical exemple of a highly derivative band who still manages to deliever an excellent work. The production is thin, it is obviously that band had a lot to learn. They have a lot against them (even the time it was released). And Nothing Is Written is nevertheless a great album of songs. It takes a little to get used to, but, hey, in prog rock what does not? If you're a fan of neo prog you can go no wrong with this CD. Yes, they are very much in the vein of early Marillion. So what? I thought so of Pendragon, IQ and Twelfth Night, and after some time I found that everyone of them has its own sound and character. Even Marillion was for many years accused of being nothing more than a Genesis clone. The list goes on...

Galahad would develop in the next years, but I really think Nothing Is Written as an excellent piece of work in the neo prog vein. I don't rate it higher because the production (or lack of it) really annoys me, but that's only my opinion. the songs are very good, the musicians are as sharp as you expect from any prog act worth the label and there are no fillers here. Nothing is new or groundbreaking, but all is very well done. Do you like Marillion, Pendragon, IQ and other neo prog acts fo the early 80's? recommended.
