5 stars I think with certain tranquility, which this first album of FINCH "The Glory of Inner Force" (as also the second album "Beyond The Expression" figures between the top progressive instrumental list of prog rock albums in all times, IMHO this albums rivals with another gems like RETURN TO FOREVER "The Romantic Warior" or GRYPHOM "Red Queen to Gryphon Three". They produces a symphonic prog music mixed with jazz with a great virtuosity ! All for musicians are highly qualified... but I detach Joop Van Nimwegen and his Ackermann/Howe style and Peter Vink clearly influenced by Squire. Vink's style is easily comparable with Squire .... is enough listen in track 3 "Pisces" a solo passage starting 7 min 36 secds ! Nimwegen style also is easily identified in trac 1 " Register Magister" by the "mellow" guitar phrase starting 1 min 57 sec an Ackermann allusion and in the final passage guitar solo starting 7 min 46 sec a Howe invocation. The album don't have any weak points and "hang out" you breath in countless moments. One and probably most fantastic moments is guitar/bass duet in track 4 "A Bridge To Alice" starting 4 min 39 sec until 5 min 33 sec, simply outstanding. Obiviously my rate is 5 Stars !!!
