4 stars 77/100 for Jono's Silence. These guys live on Sweden's largest island, Gotland. I can't help conjuring film footage of Ingmar Berman's Island and all the art going on. Midnight sun, fun, and half my 2000's progressive rock collection comes from Sweden. What's in the water? Johan Norrby is the lone singer and leader, although you can hear guitar connections and percussions from the "Within Temptation." boys.

Silence is a fun album. Puts me in a good mood. I listen to Silence more than I should. Johan has a Ronnie James Dio accent, and is prone to vocalize like Freddie Mercury ( As when the Mercury drops low). Lots of songs I can sing to- crowd swaying anthems, circuit mid 80's Dio sans Diablo . Silence is good when it's loud, but it may be better in the quiet moments. Jury is still out on Jono, but I bet these guys are good live. I want to see and hear more. I've listened to the addictive "The One To Blame" twice a day for a week. Three times on weekends, so I'll put blame on JOhan NOrrby and his/their prog metal anthem surprise. Fans of Dio and Queen should check out the "Silence"

Four stars...Excellent addiction to any progressive rock collection
