2 stars I discovered the existence of this band in the early 90's when progheads started to organize themselves (the web allowed things unthinkable before) and managed to get an ear onto their early albums through the archives of our library. Needless to say that I was not really impressed and even wondered what the big deal of this band was all about. I have a rememberance of their first two studio albums rather plagued with everything wrong in music of those troubled years (mainly in the Kb dept but also in the manner of drumming) and I am quite sure that if I am to relisten those albums , more than ten years after the initial listen , I would find those faults magnified by a factor of ten at least , so I'd better not try. Partis-pris, Moi?????

However if you are a neoprohead just needing advice as you discover this band , I can send you towards mid-90's album that are much better and I might add are minor classic in the sub-genre (but still not to my liking) such as Masquarade , Windows of Life etc.....
