Prog Reviewer
3 stars Sinister Street is an obscure and little known neo prog band coming from Holland. Formed in late '80s their first release will come only in 1992 named The eve of innocence at defunct label Progressive international. While to many this is a very mediocre release, I really like it, is well played and I like a lot the vocals, Olaf Blaauw is a great vocalist who really knew to make his voice appreciated, this is not another Gabriel/Fish clone for sure. The music is more then ok, imagine a combination of Everon, Jadis with Saga, and some pop elements thrown in here and there. To me the album sound happy, fresh even is far from essential listning has plenty of good moments like opening track One in a Million, Pulse of life and A prayer for the dying, good neo pieces. There are lots of melodic passages, good keyboards and great vocal lines, a sincere release to my ears. Nothing is groundbreaking here, but is enjoyble to my ears. Eevn they had concerts with Jadis and Marillion, they disbanded in 1997 when their label went broke. 3, 5 stars for sure.
