4 stars The first question that came to my mind while listening to "Milliontown" for the very first time was "who the hell is this Jem Godfrey dude?!". He doesn't sound like the usual prog keyboardist so I was very interested in keeping on listening to him. And so I did...

Hyperventilate is an awesome beginning to an album. This instrumental track full of soft passages mixed with faster and heavy ones is exquisite. Very proggy, closer to prog metal than to neo progressive, Hyperventilate blew me away because of the guitar and keyboard work.

John Mitchell and Jem Godfrey keep doing a superb duet for the rest of "Milliontown", being Black Light Machine and the tittle track the highest (I mean, *really high*) spots in this work. The drumming and bass playing aren't that great in my opinion, but they do their job pretty well.

What really got me into "Milliontown" was the atmosphere that's around the music. FROST* really makes you cold when you listen to their music! It's not like it was Christmas time, but somehow they can pass that coldness to the listener. I also enjoyed Jem's vocals a lot, he sounds like whispering during the half of the album, what also helps the cold sensation :P

Well, this is an album that can make you shiver, if you know what I mean. Not a masterpiece of progressive music, but very close to it.

4.5/5
