Prog Reviewer
3 stars Second effort of Land of Chocolate from 2004 named Regaining hte feel is a good one for sure, but less captivating like the first. Even here only Jonn Buzby remains, the other 3 musicians from first album gone, replaced by other 3, the music mainly remains on same coordonates like on Unikorn on the Cob, but little less intrsting and with no very much original moves. Like others observe on this album sometimes is to much talk and less instrumental passages, not realy bad but only Mechanical Pencil save the album from being monotonous. Anyway the album is dynamic and has some good passages, as a whole falls in some same passages on every tune, not very diffrent to each other. The music is again ivery jazz fusion with prog metal elements added and with complexity and eclectic moments of Gentle Giant, also some Echolyn moments are present and some avant prog moments not far from Zappa in his glory days. So, as a whole is fairly good album, but without shining as their first, still has some good moments, but not spectacular passages can be heared here. 3 stars is best I can give to this album. Somehow Land of Chocolate was a promising band with great musicians and potential, but they gone unnoticed to many prog connoisseurs and for many years now nothing is known about their future or if still this bands exists.
