3 stars Fruupp plays some Peter Gabriel era Genesis inspired symphonic prog here on their debut album Future Legends. Itīs very well composed and performed. All songs are good but nothing really stands out.

The sound quality isnīt really good, but for the time itīs ok.

The album starts with the classical intro Future Legends and then continues with Decision which is a good symphonic prog rock song. All songs have quiet and more rocking passages and the singing ranges from melodic to more rock sounding moments. There are even a jazzy vers in the song Decision. So there is nothing wrong with the diversity in the music. Iīm entertained throughout the whole album. The influences are very clear though and at the end of the song: As Day Breaks With Dawn itīs almost a ripp-off of Gentle Giantīs vocal harmonies. It has to be mentioned though that this is the only place they sound like Gentle Giant. Fruuppīs overall sound is more in the vein of Peter Gabriel era Genesis.

The musicians are good without being outstanding.

This is a pretty average symphonic prog rock album from the early seventies and Iīll rate it 3 stars with the hope that Fruupp will get better on later albums.

UMUR | 3/5 |
