5 stars I confess, when I heard for the first time " Story Tellers " part 1 by TIGER MOTH TALES my expectations wasn't great.. because their previous album "Coccon" don't got my attention.... However this one at the end of first audition make me hear again and again.... Paraphrasing PA collaborator THE JESTER ( review (#1698098) posted Friday, March 3, 2017) where he says "Where Disney meets Prog!" ... a perfect sentence to define this album. Although you can find a strong GENESIS influence , starting by vocal timbre and interpretation, the use of some fables inspired themes, like in track 4 "A Kids Tale" and his acoustic-piano Boogie-woogie main theme (recalls the 20's decade sound) and track 6 "The Piper" an remake of " The Pied Piper" of Hamelin and his fantastic final theme of piper's revenge. I cannot say "Is a Genesis cheap copy " ... Far from this ! In spite this literature references , the album is plentiful of great instrumental passages , besides the two above mentioned moments, like the moog solo in track 2 "Story Tellers", the acoustic guitar/flute duet or the "Arabic" theme by guitar/keyboards just before electric-guitar solo. I consider this album one of best 2015 releases and I think which deserves a better classification than the 9 place in PA list of that year. My rate is 5 stars !!!
