4 stars Two mysterious blue eyes are looking back at you from the album cover artwork of HOUSE OF USHER's self-financed debut CD. Artist Scott Fray makes the great cover artwork. It's hard to compare HOUSE OF USHER to any other band. They are blending symphonic neo-progressive rock with influences from classical, fusion, jazz and world music, often with many time changes. Their music is a mix between CAMEL, EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER, GENESIS, GENTLE GIANT, KING CRIMSON, MARILLION, PENDRAGON, PINK FLOYD and YES but with a sound of the '90's. The whole band is showing great musicianship, with the keyboard player Richard Kaczynski as the best.

The highlights are "Don't Remind Me", the acoustic "Timneh", "Obsession" and the closing "C'est Pas Finit" which is the best song on this album.

The only negative thing is that the mixing of the album could've been better and more dynamic. But as this is a self-financed and self-produced release you shouldn't expect too much. All in all it's a very good album.

Greger | 4/5 |
