5 stars Finch's second album "Beyond Expression", as I already say in my review about the first "The Glory of Inner Force" is a must in any prog collection , specially in instrumental music terms. In this album they brings again the same symphonic/jazz prog mix ! The first track "A Passion Condenser" is a clear example, the music starts with with a very brief symphonic overture ( a "eruption" overture) and soon the jazzy and groovy main theme takes the scenery, a "easy" but strong "riff", the second part comes with a hammond-organ solo followed by a meditative phased guitar/electric piano melody and an almost "crying" guitar solo and a symphonic passage in the same mood of "overture theme ( in fact seems like a readaptation) , in the third part a moog/guitar duo is the absolute detach and at last returns the main theme... simply fantastic ! In the second track "Scars on the Ego" starts with a hard rock theme and closes with a moog/guitar duel, but the highlight go to distorted bass guitar solo (starting 3 min 57 sec ). The third track " Beyond the Bizarre" sounds like a farewell with a middle section martial theme and a rock- ballad conclusion. The musicians are perfect and creative, and the album flows easily !!! My rate is 5 stars !!!
