2 stars I really don't understand what's the fuss about this record. I've read the reviews here (and elsewhere) but I can't find anything majestic or great. First of all, I can't stand when Germans try to sing in English with this so bad accent. They'd be better stayed at home. And Murphy Blend's lead singer (who unfortunately also plays the keys) is no exception. At least I would be somewhat more satisfied if I would treated with some good or fresh music ideas, but no. From start to finish, all I can hear is Wolf-Rodiger Unlig trying to repeat the same old formulas Brooker-Fisher, Jon Lord, Keith Emerson and even Ken Hensley had already taken into the stratosphear before him. Two songs ( "Past Has Gone" and "First Loss") aren't so bad actually, but then again the awful vocals ruin them. "Use your feet" is completely useless and "Funny Guys" is laughable. How on earth, did he followed Bach's intro with this ? As for "Happiness", nothing to do with it I am afraid.... ...For German Prog-Rock fanatics only.
