"Yacobs" aka Ulf Jacobs gets the prog thing right! Well, actually, not so much of a surprise, since he's the drummer of "Argos" - one of Germany's very best prog bands. He's got his own way of writing songs, and fans of Peter Hammill and Roine Stolt should be excited about the results, which stand out considerably amidst the usual prog monotony of today.
Favorite track: How Will I Know.
As with previous releases this is a solid album from start to finish which continues the storyline, themes and signatures perfectly.
'Enigma' and 'Another Same' are on par with or superior to many commercial offerings by established prog artists.
The Waters, Wilson and Hayward influences shine through once more but I also hear song writing very much in the style of Difford and Tilbrook, 'Trough of War' & 'Another Same' probably being the best examples.
These chaps are the real deal!
Whilst delivering well crafted music, unless you focus on the lyrics, you could miss the story lines. This is the last of the war trilogy, so subtle ,but so poignant. Superb music with broken road and Holding On ,on permanent repeat. Listen and become enthralled. Top quality song writing and musicianship.10/10
