Pandoras.Box - Barriers (2009)

The debut album from this German band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of bass, drums, keyboards, guitars, percussion and vocals.

The band released two albums before they gave up. I have not found much info about this band and their two studio albums. They are really obscure.

The reason may be that the band really branched out in all directions on this album.

The ground they covered goes from ambient via electronica to rock, pop and neo-prog. They are regarded as a neo-prog band though.

There is not much neo-prog on this seventy-five minutes long album. The vocals are really good but the music is everywhere and kicks in all directions.

I am aware of that the meaning of album can also mean a collection of various styles. But this album takes it too far.

There is some decent and good stuff here. There are also some stuff that does not work at all.

I am not sure what the band wanted with this album. Nevertheless, this is a decent album. I think I will miss out on their second album.
