RPWL ‘Stock’ (Inside Out 69372365512) (2003)

The third album by this German band, this is a compilation of material that did not feature on the band’s first two albums. These songs have been newly arranged by the band for this release.

The whole album has a very high standard of musicianship and passages of the music bring to mind classic era Genesis, Pink Floyd and the band with most similarity to my ears are Camel. Plenty of subtle guitar soloing coupled with lush keys and arrangements. Highlights include ‘The Way It Is’, with a Floyd style vocal coupled with keyboard solos all over the place. The ten minute epic ‘The Gentle Art of Swimming’ highlights the band’s musicality featuring plenty of keyboards and guitars, plus crystal clear percussion. You also get mellower moments in the shape of ‘Forgive Me – Part 2’ and ‘Who Do You Think You Are’.

A very well produced slice of modern progressive rock from a talented band. People who enjoy classic era prog rock and those who enjoy modern sounds will enjoy this release equally.
