4 stars Relocator is an instrumental prog band in the route of Planet X. You can bet they are on the top of the game and they don't have anything to envy to those impressive masters. Well, in fact they have one little thing: Derek Sherinian. He played as a guest musician and it's great to hear that he fit in just like another member. He is not in the album to show off and send the rest of the music backwards, this is a serious and professional effort and they manage to merge perfectly the music. Everything is on the right amount of energy and quality. This is how groups should sound, all the instruments sharing ideas, phrases and solos without too much flashes and showing off.

I recommend this album to any Prog Metal or Jazz Fusion fans. Those who love or like Planet X, this is your chance to continue enjoying great music with great style and performers that has the level to be in the top of the top. Don't worry, it's not just a clone of Planet X, it has its own magic and sometimes it sounds better, more cohesive and more like a band.

One of the main problems with instrumental projects is that most of the time they put their trust on their skill more than in the songwriting. This is not the case, this is music well written and better performed and gives to the audience a lot of stimulating ideas to fly away and let the music drives you to a very nice place. Close your eyes and enjoy the ride. 4 strong stars. Hoping to have more of them in the future. I thanks Kyo to let me try his music.
