3 stars Ines is a forgotten neo prog band from Germany, who release so far four albums. Formed in early '90's and taken the name after the female keybordist Ines Fuchs, not really get all the attenti they desearve. Now, Ines is something diffrent of the most neo prog bands from this scene, because they have a special sound, very smooth and elegant arrangements, almost all the pieces are mid temo, with lush kybords played by Ines with great atmospheric passages combined with great voice of Chicco Grosso. The main attraction of this album is to my ears the vocal parts, I mean this guy really knows how to handle his vocal tone and to create something of a real intrest in this domain. He shines on most of the pieces here with a warm voice, calculated vocal passages, who remind me a lot of Camel, elegant and smooth in same time. The rest of the instruments had a role here of course but I don't think the guitar has the most important one, Massimo Michieletto the six string man from here done a good job, giving the album a very solid and intristing aura. I said that Ines is diffrent from other bands from this genre, because thay have an unique way of sayiung or playing this music, not very quirky or over complex, but has enough moments to capture my attention for almost one hour. All the pieces are well balanced, who relies more on atmospheric keybords who are very close to Genesis or Roxy Music in parts, but aswell are some who are excatly similar to Iq for ex, but always unique and great. Not a weak moment here, that the resean I give a solid 3 stars for this album release in 1999 named The Flow. Moody neo prog, little underrated IMO, but not exactly one of the essential albums from this genre. Still needs a better and wider view for sure. Good album all the way, pieces like Feel the River's Dance , The River and Me or On the Shore shines as great as they are and the true sound of Ines.
