3 stars Abel Ganz is one of the bands from the first wave of neo prog bands from early'80's in Great Britain. Formed in 1980 in Glasgow, Abel Ganz release first album in 1984. Next year the follow up was born and saw the light in 1985 named Gullibles travel. This album was my first Abel Ganz journey through their music. Neo prog in vein of Pallas, Pendragon with lots of keyboards arrangements, good guitar elements added and a voice who is typical for this kind of music but also some Genesis hints are here aswell most on vocal department, what else then a neo prog band all the way. But with all good music they've made through the years and specially in the early years of their career , the band didn't manage to be in the first seats of neo prog movement, Marillion, Iq ,Pallas or Pendragon become much more known in prog circles then Abel Ganz. The album sounds good with some nice shifts between guitar and keys , the voice is ok, but nothing is realy solid, they sound like begginers, even is second album the bands doesn't seam to be confortable in what they play. Still a pleasent album to my ears, with some very good moments like The Unholy War or title track. 3 stars for this album, good and a little bit underrated, even doesn't have the magic moments of Misplaced chilldhood or The wake, this is pretty good stuff.
