4 stars It took TWIN AGE three years to follow up their excellent "Lialim High" album from 1997. Much has happen musically since then. This is far from the band I learned to love when I first heard their debut CD "Month of the Year" in 1996. I guess they were fed up with all these people saying they were GENESIS-clones, but I liked them that way.

With their new album "Moving the Deckchairs" they have washed away all their GENESIS similarities. Their new direction points towards a more modern neo-progressive rock with fewer instrumental passages. They have also incorporated female vocals by Ida Rönn. She has a very good voice and it suits TWIN AGE's new sound very well.

The CD-booklet has a more modern layout too. Besides Johan Hansson's unmistakable vocals there isn't much left of the old TWIN AGE. It's up to each one to decide whether they like the old sound or the new sound better. Although I liked "Lialim High" more I think they have to stay on the new road to develop their own style, even though I'm full of doubt. All in all this is a very nice album. Let's see what the future will bring.
