Clepsydra - Hologram (1991)

The debut album from this band from Switzerland.

The band is a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

This band has released five albums so far and I got them all for reviews this summer.

That means starting with this album, their debut album.

Clepsydra does neo-prog in the British tradition from the 1980s. That means lots of Pendragon and Marillion references here.

The music has got this 1980s sound and it is not a good sound. It is a thin, weak sound. 

The songs are pretty short and is supposed to be catchy. They are failing that task. They are also pretty poppy and does not give the listener many interesting details.

The vocals is really good though.

This album is a child of it's time. The songs are still decent enough but this is not an album this band should be judged by. It is a decent debut album.
