3 stars Qwaarn is one of the unnoticed bands coming from Quebec zone from the newer generation of prog bands. I was very surprised to see how low rated this band is. Their first album released in 2004 named The world of qwaarn sounds to me anything but neo prog really. This very much towards eclectic prog in vein of what Van Der Graaf generator done in mid '70s. Some arrangements and the most similar with VDGG is the voice of Mathieu Lessard , better known from Daghmahr band. Well, I must confess that to me this album sounds pretty much ok most of the time, I like the the voice who remind me a lot of Hammill. Even is far from being great, in places is little forced and doesn't have catchy moments overall this album is ok to my ears. I like the first copuple of pieces and the middle of the album, some nice keyboards and aswell vocal parts. Not among the worst albums I've ever heared but nothing is excellent here aswell, little amatorish. 3 stars to me. Good cover art made my the master behind Genesis albums, Alex Carpani, etc - Paul Whitehead.
