4 stars "Paint a Picture" was the debut album release by England's FANTASY and represents a lovely early work of art. This 5 piece English band play a highly symphonic styled melodic progressive rock with some lovely deep mellotron and keyboards. FANTASYy were known as a song based band and this album showcases their lyrical approach to symphonic music. Instrumentally these guys were amazing with some lovely bass, guitar and drum interplay all put to the expressive and flowing vocals. Hard to exactly peg down but one might draw some similarities to the approach of STARCASTEL, Alan PARSONS PROJECT (ie. Politely Insane) GENESIS and even BARCLAY JAMES & HARVEST. Their sound is full and rich with lots of great instrumentation. Recommended for your collection !
