4 stars From the depth of obscurity comes a british neo prog band formed in mid '80's in Glasgow named very suggestive Comedy of errors. I heared about this band , I guess 2 years ago, since then I've tried to get some of their works but without luck, utill 2 weeks ago when one of the most important members from PA help me with this relase.. On Musea records is an album of the band with same name , but is the mini album released in 1986, the pieces from there are featuring here on this more like a compilation from 1988. So about the music of this underrated band, this neo prog of the highest calibre, not because they have very complex compositions, but because they are unique in sound and in manner of interpretation. I mean the keyboards are absolutly killer on some pieces, the first three tracks are essential to listen, Emperor's Clothes, Rule Britannia and Tunes Of Glory, such positive attitude, up tempo arrangements and solid musicianship I hardly heared on a neo prog band from the '80's. They don't sound like Marillion at all, not even the singer , they are more towards Iq and It Bites, that special atmosphere combined here and there with some more popish elements. In the end a highly recommended album of this unnoticed band from UK neo prog scene. They didn't hit big time, strange because this release is a worthy purchase for sure.4 star esy, excellent work.
