4 stars Third album of their career named Propaganda from 2005 is natural follow up of previous album , but this time they are even more orientated to eclectic sound, even in places tend to be some crossover moments, but overall sount is defintly eclectic and for sure not symphonic prog. Propaganda is another worthy Chaos Code album, full of intelligent pieces and some amazing prog moments. I don't think this is their best album from the all three, but is close to the second one who I considered the most acomplished and inventive one. Again they have a vintage sound, typical for bands from mid to late '70, in places even some bluesish and psychedelic atmosphere is present like on opening track Chameleon and on New Domination aswell. The longest track from here Last Assignment is a smooth journey in their jazzy psychedelic sound and concludes as one of the best pieces they ever created, nice and elegant pieces. Revising History is another great instrumental tune with with beautiful eclectic guitar who interplay very precise with the spacey keys, one of the best from here. Saturated has some VDGG moments, specialy because of the chaotic sax sound in positive way chaotic, even I trace some Creative Rock atmosphere only with a diffrent voice, who is almost spoken here, nice piece in the end. These are the best pieces from Propaganda, the rest are ok, nothing realy over the top, but pleasent a full of great musicianship all. I will give 4 stars again, more like 3.5 rounded to 4, another great Chaos Code album, but a little bit less convinceing then The tragedy of leaps and bounds, the sound and manner of interpretation is again top notch, intristing and inventive, but I prefere the previous one to be their most mature work and the most inventive one aswell. Still agreat album with a lot to offer, still recommended for the great atmosphere and briliant songwritting as whole.
