3 stars Well, this American progband Phreeworld is so obscure there's even no description available at the moment. Yet there is already a review and a few ratings for this album so a few people have discovered them and I consider myself lucky to have found this album.

Ok, lucky then in the sense that this is a pretty rare one I guess, not really in the sense that it's a truly excellent piece of work. Still it's an enjoyable release with hints of Cairo (sound) and Iris/Arrakeen (guitar). I'm not going to do a song by song review because there are no interesting stories to tell about each song with exception of the last two that is. Wardrums is an almost complete rip off of one of the Momentary Lapse songs by Pink Floyd, very striking. Last and longest song of the album, The Chariot is in fact the most interesting and original composition with alternating tempo and mood shifts.

But even this song doesn't quite reach the excellent or outstanding status. There are no real disappointing tracks either on this nice release by this nice band. But that's all it is actually and therefore the only right outcome is three stars.
