4 stars German band CRYSTAL PALACE has been around for more than twenty years at this point, steadily releasing albums that have been pleasantly received by the ones in the know over the years, but without any measurable success on a strictly commercial level from what I understand. In 2012 the band underwent a slight personnel revolution, with a new drummer and guitarist joining the ranks. This was followed by a deal with the German indie label Gentle Art of Music, which released Crystal Palace's sixth studio album "The System of Events" in the fall of 2013.

Crystal Palace doesn't seek out any new, unfamiliar grounds with their sixth album "The System of Events", a production just about split half and half between Porcupine Tree and RPWL in terms of likely inspirations for the sound, mood and atmospheres explored and with a couple of instances where features from both of these influential bands appear. The compositions are well-made and performed however, a strong production as far as I'm concerned, and as long as you enjoy both of the aforementioned bands you should most likely find this album to be an enjoyable experience.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
