Izz - I Move (2002)
The second album from this US band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of guitars, drums, bass, keyboards and vocals.
The band had help from extra string conductor and vocalists.
Izz is one of those neo-prog and symphonic prog bands from USA who has never really got a good breakthrough. They have not been able to take the final step to stardom and artistic recognition.
Izz gives us a seventy-five minutes long album on I Move.
The music is really nice and appealing. Lots of long guitar solos and harmonies. Lots of keyboards too. The vocals are really good. The music is in the neo-prog vein with some detours into college rock and alternative rock. But this is neo-prog.
There is not much difference between the high and lows on this album. There are some really clever, nice details here too.
The music is good throughout. Good but not great and not spectacular in any sense or form.
This is a good album and an album I really like. But I wish it was a lot better it is.
