4 stars Quite amazing what a SINGLE CELLED ORGANISM is capable of. Hahaha, sorry, couldn't resist to place that silly joke at the very start. This is the new album produced by multi-instrumentalist, composer and audio engineer Jens Lueck from Hamburg by using this moniker. Going into round three now he's continuing the adventurous story about Barnaby and a TV GirI named Tella. 'Event Horizon' is consisting of nine songs, and was recorded by a real crew of eight musicians in total. Means, he has the hat on here, but it's not a strict solo album anyhow, not a one-man show. A big plus in general. Undoubtedly you will hear that Lueck bears the prog in his DNA quasi. Stylistically seen they are providing a blend of neo and art rock, including superb male and female vocals, touching melodies and harmonies, fine instrumentation. And partially equipped with a rather tricky execution (exemplarily take care of the drumming please).

Memories In A Box initiates the song collection, just an album highlight due to its non predictable behaviour. This is followed by the more accessible acoustic piano and guitar dominated ballad Changes Are Coming (The Companion). Actually this song couple goes representative for an alternating flow on 'Event Horizon' in general. Again those fine female vocal contributions are coming from Isgaard. Can't imagine who could make it better, just when it comes to my album favourite Inhale What's Forbidden for example. Also great dynamics and a wonderful diversified guitar presence on top regarding this excerpt. The awesome title track closes this chapter of the series, let's see what comes next. My summary: a top-notch progressive rock album, I would say the project's masterpiece, so far at least.
