Prog Reviewer
4 stars Keyboard captain Yuka Funakoshi and her crew of prog sailors embark on another voyage on Ship, yet another concept album. This time, their various mostly-instrumental prog excursions revolve around various types of ship, as the title implies; the major attraction here is the multi-part epic Argo, named for the ship which carried Jason and the Argonauts on their quest for the Golden Fleece - and which was ultimately the death of him, after he'd been ruined by his own hubris.

Still, there's no sign of Yuka and her team succumbing to such faults here - far from resting on their laurels, they continue to produce fresh-sounding instrumental prog which bridge classic prog and modern compositional approaches and performance styles. Curved Air's Sonja Kristina steps in to do guest vocals as the voice of none other than the Argo's figurehead at the start of the album, a welcome sign that the Chronoship crew have won the respect of the prog trailblazers whose wake they sail in.

Warthur | 4/5 |
