5 stars Wow! Just, wow! The debut of the band Frost* is, in lack of a better word, amazing.

I have no previous relation with either Frost* or its members, but after the first listen I understood the hype about this band. What makes this stand out especially, unlike many groups with many virtuoso instrumentalists, Frost* never seem to loose themselves in their own brilliance. I get the feeling that "Milliontown" was made with melody and energy in mind foremost, and that the technical showcasing is just a fortunate circumstance to the music.

If you are unfamiliar with Frost* and their music it can be described as somewhat of a cross of rock/fusion with progressive music of many forms. It's hard to find a good corresponding act that at least resemble the sound of Frost*, I can't for the life of me think of any right now. It's really melodic, slick and well structured, that's the best description I can give. In the bands Biography here on progarchives, band leader and creator Jem Godfrey shares his view on progressive music stating that "Most prog bands sound as if the last thirty years never happened. How can that be progressive?" This trend is very apparent here on progarchives and there has been many times when I've myself questioned some of the leading "progressive" acts right to actually call themselves that. What Godfrey set out to do with Frost* was to create progressive rock for the 21st century. In my opinion he succeeded, astonishingly well.

With some of the crispest production I've ever heard, coupled with marvelous instrumentalists and song lyrics that for once almost grab my attention, Frost* is a fresh wind in the genre and Milliontown one of the best albums of this decade so far.

It is a masterpiece, listen to it, love it, treasure it!

5/5
