Tompox is the nickname of bass player Tamas Pocs of the band Solaris. Pocs formed his own band under the name of Tompox, and Reincarnation is the third album released under this name. Here we have an album that is more towards Fusion, but still with a spacy Solaris sound to some of the tracks. Flutes and keyboards feature prominently as well as guitars. There is a harder edge here and another comparison point would be Nostradamus - another Solaris offshoot that released an album called Testament in 2008.

Reincarnation is almost completely instrumental, with only the closing track featuring lead vocals by Beata Vincze. This track is very different in character to the rest of the album, not only in virtue of the vocals. With over 70 minutes of music included, they could perhaps have considered shortening the album somewhat. Having that said, I enjoy all of this music very much, and the musicianship is top notch. Fans of the great Solaris might want to check this out, but if you are expecting a new Solaris album you will of course not be fully happy with Reincarnation.
