4 stars Druckfarben is a young progressive rock band from Canada, releasing this year their first opus selftitled. I must tell from the beggining that when I heared first piece of the album ELPO (with a clear direction to the masters) I was imediatly hooked. One of the best and freshest albums I've heared in last period in prog rock scene. The album graced by an excellent cover art in tone with the music offered, Druckfarben realy take me by surprise. Very promising debute , with catchy , tight arrangements, very intelligent composotions with a wide palette of sounds and influences, from masters Yes mainly on vocal department special on Nat Nayah , Gentele Giant quirky complex passages like on Sons Of Anakim or Smaller Wooden Frog , Alan Holdsworth on jazzy guitar arrangements, ELP on keybords but only sporadicaly and with Tiles or Rush, so, even the band take influences from these bands, the result is very good, very fresh and with captivating moments. I can easely tell that is one of the most original bands I've heared and come across in last couple of years. Heavy prog is the main word and ingredient here with excellent keybords and great jazz fusion guitar, but not a fusion album for sure. All tracks are killer to me, from the first note to last, to the great voice of Phil Naro who reminds me of Yes heyday period, Druckfarben realy done it. Is a shining star in today prog scene, to much time with overly produced and lame productions. 4 stars easy and warmly recommended, they worth it.
