2 stars Elton John is Prog?

Mainstream Rock, with some "Prog" keyboard's touch. No "masterpiece", not even close. If PA takes these kind of bands as Proggers, well, we are in for trouble. I have tried to find the "prog" side in ECHOES OF GIANTS's, first release "At The End Of Myself", and well it "crosses over" to Synth/Rock as such, more than real "prog". BUT not even that kind of Synth/Rock is novel nor original. Not much to really highlight this work for, besides the mystery of having been included in PA, above real "proggers", who have not yet being included. (Tuxedomoon, just to mention one). Besides that, you are in for another, not daring, more "cliches", of the "Synth/Prog/Rock" formula music, that I have heard through this 2013 more than once.

Some Keith Emerson's/ Rick Wakeman's like keys in the long run are not enough to pull this work above its limited musical language. The guitar work, although well produced, can't escape that either. The Elton John like voice, with Elton's kind of song writing, does not help neither.

So, overrated falls short, unless you are a secret admirer of Elton's music, but ashamed to admit it. I myself could not care less for this or that. I hope this band trascends in their next effort, all of this one's musical composition limitations . **2.5 PA stars.
