Prog Reviewer
3 stars Progressive Rock musical idioms seem to have been stuck somewhere along the million productions this whole world of music has released. People seem to care more for impeccable reproductions of the same old trips, rather than on the look out for ground breaking new prog music proposals.

Pandora Snail's "War and Peace",2015, owes more than a lot to very loved prog bands and some not that appreciated or known non-prog musicians. A certain closeness with Jethro Tull or PFM or Jean Luc Ponty or Fripp's "League of Gentlemen" or other Prog related influences will certainly make lot of proggers happy, seasoned with the retro Jazz standards of Django Reinhardt's "Quintette du Hot Club de France" and of course and mostly Django's all time violin accomplice Stéphane Grappelli, seems nice if you listen to them for the first time.

"War and Peace" is very well structured full of impeccable performances, with no real NEW music directions or proposals besides being top performers playing along the lines. So no matter how much I PAID or would have loved loving this happily rated work, I've heard better things, sorry me.

By the way drums are recorded too loud obstructing more than once the rest of the instruments.

***3.5 PA stars. Expecting their second release for now.
