3 stars Eye 2 eye is a french band from the new generation of neo prog bands emerged in early '00. First album released in 2006 named One in every crowd is a journey of more then an hour in neo prog realm. Like almost every first album of a band this has good parts and bad parts. The good parts are , the keyboards of Phillipe Benabes sound excellent, in places even superb, from mellow to more speedy ones, this part is the main atraction of the band, or at least here on first album. Another good part is that the voice is ok, Benoit Derat fits very well in this kind of music and delivers some great moments, specialy when he sings in low register, he has such a melacholic and sad voice, but very good. Now , the bad parts are the sound, and on some compositions is to much talking and very few moments of intrumental passages, and I don't like when the bands lose control on one piece or another and fall in some improviation moments, both on vocal parts and on some instrumental passages. If is ok in places with this instrumental noodleings, the voice in this case sounds awful. Anyway a good neo prog album, with some fascinating keyboards moments, more towards dark attitude and very emeotional, with sad and happy moments aswell. I think 3 stars is fair for this first attempt to make some ripples around them in this field. Nothing over the top, but pleasent most of the time.
