4 stars After hearing Metamorphosis second album, I was eager to get to know their other releases. And I was quite surprised how powerful was Metamorphosis debut. It is a mix of symphonic and neo prog styles, with a strong Pink Floyd influence. Actually latter-day PF is their most obvious role model, with some Pendragon and early Genesis overtones, but still the music of Metamorphosis has its own face and sound. Jean-Pierre Schenk is a talented songwriter and skillful musician. His voice is quite fitting for his music too. Nothing too bombastic or heavy, just plain melodic progressive music, with some fine guitar solos. And I like it!

Production is very good and Schenk has the help of some fine musicians on this project. The arrangements are tasteful and there are no real highlights, the album as a whole is very good. I wouldn´t call After All This Years a masterpiece but it is surely a fine addtion to any prog collection. Specially if you like a more laid back prog, with great melodies. Something between 3,5 to 4 stars. Very good release from this swiss band.
