4 stars A neat debut creation by a promising combo from Netherlands. A Dutch rock project Elements were founded as a Neo-symphonic band (commonly featuring guitars, keyboards, and drums) in early 2014, by four willing musicians squarely inspired by Dream Theater, Spock's Beard, Transatrantic, or plenty of art rock outfits. In this album are full of delightful sincere symphonic melody lines upon some tight but complex rhythmic bases, and they would catch art rock fans' hearts. They say they always play in the vein of modern melodic progressive style (namely sorta mixture of Neo-Symph / Crossover), and that's the reason their composition and production should be quite acceptable.

Every track is not too long for the audience to squeeze all of their spirits into it, and is pretty cool but catchy leaning towards 80s British progressive rock (reminds me of UK or Asia). Kee's keyboards play (what an ideal first name he has) is quite tight and enthusiastic enough that the audience should be driven mad. The rhythm section (Joost's bass play and Sander's drumming) can blow up and strike their strict and refined beats into a song. Ren''s lead guitar play would be called as a brilliant usher, who well utilizes vibes with heavy, metallic, tragic, or pleasant hints, for the combo. Joost's voices are a tad inflexible and opacified (sounds not suitable for such a massive music theatre) but simultaneously sound unique. Quite so excellent are their playing technique and production enough to amaze every progressive rock fan from now on.

Thanks to dAmOxT7942 for the artist addition.
