3 stars 7 for 4 is a german jazz fusion band who has three albums since now. This one Time is their second one from 2004. Hmm intristing combinations of jazz - fusion prog metal in places some folkish elements ar added here and there, the resoult is 7 for 4. The album is mainly instrumental with some exceptions, that means they have enough spave to demonstarate their skills in prog music. The musicians are very talented , that is clear when you pieces like: Zeitgeist,TempERAmento or Where Are You Now (with a beautiful female voice of Conny Kreitmeier), the rest of the pieces are ok, but sometimes is to much noodleings that makes me go to sleep, nothing special, but as whole the album is a good one. We have here as main composer the guitarist from the famous german prog metal band Sieges Even - Wolfgang Zenk. He new how to manage to create something pleasent combining some very intristing riffs with some pleasent and very intriguing solos - from jazz smoothness to some latin parts here and there, some prog metal chops melted with jazz give to the listner a special atmosphere. So a good album, that desearves for sure 3 stars, I can't give more because of that parts that are a little boring. Worth couple of spins, nothing groundbreaking but ok and inventive in places, similar with Anomaly (the dutch one), LTE or Gordian Knot.
