4 stars GALAHAD always sat smack on the fence that delineates pop from prog. With "Year Zero", they've definitely moved over to prog. It is their most adventurous album to date and their best by far. If you think you've heard it all as far as "progressive" sounds are concerned, you're in for a treat with "Year Zero". To quote Mr. Jerry Lucky, author of The Progressive Rock Files, "Think... TANGERINE DREAM with guitars and drums... fat, analog arpeggios almost in an electronic dance feel." He obviously was referring to a couple of outstanding tracks, "Yearzeroverture" and "Democracy"; but the album also provides some other delights. There's everything in here from jazz to rock to electronics with many themes and tempo changes, not to mention some hair-raising, spooky sounds totally unexpected from the GALAHAD we've come to know. Not only have they got their sound right (for once!), but gone are the sappy ballads and pop ditties of yore. We're talking bold Prog experiments, here, with power to boot. If you like your Prog with muscle and thought GALAHAD never had it in them, check this one out.
Hibou | 4/5 |
