Parzivals Eye are the chosen name for Chris Postl (Vocals/Guitars/ Keyboards,Bass) from RPWL´s solo releases! This being the second release and the music is very melodic and catchy, a bit of Beatles influence here and there,with hints of Alan Parsons Project and Pink Floyd. With musical partners such as (see list below) : Christina Booth (Magenta) on superb vocals and the ever brilliant lead guitars of Ian Bairnson (Pilot/ Alan Parsons Project) things cant go wrong and of course they dont!
As a matter of fact, this is a fine album with many great tunes and quite a few of them get to be earhangers after a few spins. Be prepared for some humming in the bath!
I have always liked RPWL and the solo works from Yogi Lang, now I am adding Chris Postl to that list!
What a band RPWL, what a talent mass within´ one group, it is quite amazing!!
For those of you whom not allready in the know of brilliant RPWL, do check them out!! Next step is of course searching for solo works from said band. I gave you some guidelines here and its up to you, to follow through.
So an album I recommend to all friends of great symphonic prog, with excellent compositions and great delivery, also of course for friends of mentioned influences abowe!
Do what you gotta do, but this is one album you dont wanna miss!
Just dont expect thundering chords and screaming vocals!! NO this beauty disguised as wonderful musicianship and brilliant production!
