"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.
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
I'm a recent Sanguine Hum convert and I can't believe it's taken me until now to discover them! This is a simply fabulous album. If you're a Steven Wilson, Anathema or even a Gentle Giant, Jellyfish or Hatfield and the North fan, get yourself a copy. Great musicianship, wonderful melodies, superb voice, top songwriting.
