2 stars The Quiet Room is an american progressive metal band with two albums since now. This one named Reconceive from 2000 is their second and aswell the final one. Well, I have mixt feelings about this release, because they've try to compose a good album and give to the listner a well rounded release in prog metal, but not entirely succeded. The music is not band, some pasages are real good, and some pieces are strong for this kind of subgenre, but more than half of the album is mediocre, and specially the voice ruins everything here. As I said some pieces are real strong like Reason for Change (the intro from this track is killer) and the instrumental Two Minutes Hate, the rest are between good and mediocre, not necesarly bad but not something very enjoyble to my ears. The voice of Pete Jewell is the thing that I don't like here, this kind of voice for prog metal I don't like, rougher, not very polishet, typical an american accent all over, not for me.The keys of Jeff Janeozko are only background, no really solos or something more catchy, only as support instrument, and not a real solid one, like the guitar duo not really impressed. So, as a whole is not entirelly a bad album, just don't appeal for me very much like other releases from that period. 2.5 for this album, even I'm a collector and a big prog metal fan, this band was and is kinda forgotten in my collection.
