3 stars 3.5 really

A very worthy obscure german neo prog band from early to mid 90s with only two albums released and then gone into oblivion. The first release saw the light in 1994 named Behind the door and is a very good towards great neo prog. Complicated orchestrations, very nice musicicnship all over and I think is quite unde rated release in neo prog scene, this album is sounding much better then many albums with name. I can add that these germans are very skillfull delivering some quite intresting pieces like opening Hangman or Cosmorama, 6 pieces all lenghty and complex. There are a a well balanced between instrumental sections and the one with voice. All in all a damn fine release and fans of the genre must listen because worthy is, 3.5 stars almost a 4. For fans of more complicated neo prog like IQ, italians from Aufklarung or americans from Animator among others.
