I have and always had, a special ear and musical heart for Dutch prog groups, ever since I heard: Focus/ Kayak/ Trace/ Solution/ Finch/ Supersister etc. etc. !! Dutch prog have always been in the front seat, as long as I can remember, yes there were variations and time periods where Sweden and Norway ruled the prog stage. Earlier of course, you know this, the prog realm was ruled by Italian and Uk bands! But lately Dutch progbands seem to resurface and one of the most prolific these days are SILHOUTTE. I have heard and liked a few of their former releases..but this one is an absolute masterpiece!!
Everything here is just spot on, the magic of the compositions, the delivery, the vocal arrangements, the musicianship, the production !! EVERYTHING is perfect to this old geezers mind and ears! I of course doubt the message that the "World is Flat" but hey what is progmusic without the fantasy and progressive storytelling. I really like the way that this band have somehow merged the sound of the old with the new. A truly excellent album that should appeal to most prog friends !! This Silhouette is bright and clear, with a certain inner amount of glow, spark and excellence. Why wait ?! Get yours today !!
Note: The artwork here is great, the album comes in a gatefold cardboard sleeve with an excellent booklet incl. lyrics.
