WATERCLIME The Astral Factor|
Lion Music LMC164 (2006)
Led by Vintersongís Mr V, who basically plays everything, this album mixes progressive and symphonic rock, with touches of Nordic folk.
Opener 'Mountains' is a strong and heavy number, with the emphasis on modern prog rock, but itís downhill from there. Tracks become disjointed, and in places aimless with too much folk.
The melodies are good and often catchy, but not utilised or integrated well.
Interesting, in places very enjoyable, but a rather too individual.
