US - California - Full Moon 44 - 05/18/00
The American group Metaphor has released a concept album that is full of ingenious
[progressive] rock in a unique style drawing upon a great diversity of influences (i.e.,
early Genesis, some Pink Floyd, etc), moulded in their own musical sensibilities and with
the respect of the glorious past and a view on the inexorably judgmental future.
The result is intricate and gripping, and it's rock sound. starfooted is a musical
feast of evocative melodies and consumate rock. An auspicious debut that speaks highly of the
group as the complete sum of the individual creative forces, their mastery of the music and
line and their ability and flexibility to create a compelling, original sound.
From Galileo Records - the first Swiss Progressive
Rock Label - and home of yet another excellent progressive instrumental marvel: XANG and their
Destiny of a Dream.
