4 stars The debut album from Vienna Circle, White Clouds is a concept album, set against a backdrop of the first world war.

The album defies direct comparisons but there are definite influences apparent, such as Pink Floyd, Marillion and even Neal Morse.

The music is very melodic and layered in the true tradition of prog.

The vocal story line is regularly interspersed with lengthy instrumental sections and soaring guitar solos. Particular highlights for me are the dynamic 'First Night In Berlin' and the emotional 'Her Green Eyes Blew Goodbye'.

The album climaxes with 'White Clouds (Finale)' which reprises the opening track, embellished with a truly anthemic guitar theme.

All in all this is a truly remarkable debut which I can highly recommend to any neo-prog afficienados. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
