Prog Reviewer
3 stars Mindgames present on Actors In a Play a very theatrical style of neo-prog - aided, in particular, by the lyrical delivery of Bart Schram. Comparisons to Genesis are tempting, though actually in the album's more overtly whimsical moments (which cross the line into "irritatingly twee" a little too often) I'm most reminded of the glory days of Ange. The upshot is that this is a neo-prog album which may offer a refreshingly different take on the neo-prog sound for those who remember Ange with fondness, but which at the same time the lead singer's theatrical flourishes may prove irritating to some listeners. In other words, like Ange itself, it's an acquired taste.
Warthur | 3/5 |
