2 stars The introduction to the group here at progarchives mentions that fans of Mithrandir and Amenophis might lap this up. I haven't heard Mithrandir, but this entirely instrumental album bears no resemblance to Amenophis' elegant majestic work.

Dice seems to be very much from the ELP school in terms of use and sound of the organ, with perhaps even less emotion and warmth, if that is even possible. It is hard to pick out a highlight, but the main reason to listen might be for a fan of various jazz, classical, and prog classics to pick out the little snippets taken from these genres. Taken without insight respect, subtlety, feel for light and shade, sense of melody or timing, and with a misplaced irreverence. I take nothing away from the competence of these musicians, and to the possible limited appeal among prog snobs, but this one should have stayed on the shelf.
