CD Reviews

Underrated Progressive Gem
mobby_uk | London United Kingdom | 04/11/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Grace is a very talented progressive rock band from England. Though they are labelled as neo, their sound is quite unique and original. This is their second Cyclops release, with a more mature sound and tighter production. While their first had celtic influences and although great, was at times uneven, Pulling Strings and Shiny Things is a masterpiece.
The tracks are short, but full of surprises,very melodic,with clever time changes,and excellent musicianship throughout.
What pleased me so much about this CD, is the fact that music has an equal place as singing in all the tracks, as opposed to the sometimes annoying lead vocalist singing over most of the solos, in many neo prog bands.
I highly recommend this CD to be in your collection whether you are a neo or symphonic prog fan, for it offers the listener a rewarding combination of good lyrics, and excellent song writing that stays with you for a long time, from a highly talented and underrated band."
