2.0 out of 5 stars Stick with the original, 9 Sep 2012
This review is from: Spirit Of Talk Talk (Audio CD)
Well, I wanted to like this, I really did. However, after listening- it just leaves me empty, and ready to listen to the real TALK TALK. I find this a poor copy, a let down, and often boring.

Whilst it is a nice idea, it does not work, it just makes me hungry for more TALK TALK. Nothing can beat the vocal range, mood and emotion of the originals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best album of 2008, 24 Oct 2008
This review is from: The Opiates Revised (Audio CD)
A bold statement, but it is what I think.

This album is like no other album I own, it moves me in a way I never thought music could. There isn't a bad track on this, as each day I keep telling myself that a different track is my favourite track.

Thomas has a wonderfully rich baratone voice, that works so well with the gentle music. This album will be known as an absolute classic in time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fish TALKS!, 12 Feb 2008
This review is from: 13th Star (Audio CD)
Fish talks on this one. No real 'singing'. Sounds like a peter gabriel record really, just not quite as good. Shame, as I really wanted to enjoy it, but there is no [very little] energy on this.

Ok, after many many listens. This sounds like an old man in a pub, just moaning about his woes.
This bores me, as I previously said, there is no energy at all on this. Maybe Fish has simply become bored? A real shame though, as I was really looking forward to getting this.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but very 'samey', 8 Feb 2008
This review is from: The Dreams Of Man (Audio CD)
I love this style of music, but this has nothing new to offer. The reason for giving it 3 stars is simply it is poorly recorded where the vocals are concerned. They are quiet and 'muddy' in most parts.
If you like Pallas, try Arena or Galahad or Credo for sharp, clean vocals.

4.0 out of 5 stars ARENA/GALAHAD/Marillion....neo-prog, 1 Jan 2008
This review is from: Rhetoric (Audio CD)
CREDO are one of those bands that just seem to stay on the fringe of things, they lurk in the shadows....but they shouldn't!!!! They have come up with a great album, which is similar in style to ARENA or GALAHAD. With this CD I was not really expecting much. Boy, was I wrong! Wonderful melodies, superb musicanship, top class production, well thought out tracks and lyrics and a very fine lead singer. At times they can sound like eary Marillion, sometimes Peter Gabriel or yes, but they do have a personality and they sound fresh and exciting all the way through the entire CD.

The vocals are clean, easily understood and at times are quite emotional.

The big guns of GALAHAD and ARENA overshadow bands like CREDO, but Credo quietly seeps into your brain. Don't let this slip away! You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Neo Prog Rock!!!, 1 Jan 2008
This review is from: Empires Never Last (Audio CD)
Through this album Galahad invited the contribution of Karl Groom, guitarist of Threshold. No wonder that this album has some flavor of progressive metal especially in the use of riffs. Karl is also credited with co-production and engineering and the overall sound of the album.

The album starts with an amazing angelic acappella Part 1 of "De-Fi-Ance". This really sets the tone of the overall album beautifully. It moves in great mood to the screaming male vocal which remarks the intro of Part 2 of "De-Fi-Ance". What happen is then the follow-up music which comprises heavy riffs by bass guitar overlain beautifully by a long sustain keyboard work. It is then that you realise you have stumbled on a very special recording indeed. It does remind me of ARENA, and a little like the latest CREDO CD, but has their very own style, and what style...they stand head and shoulders above any other band. Classy, well thought out, musically amazing with top-notch vocals....you can't hope for more.

"I Could Be God" is a long track (13:58) with multiple styles starting with a great keyboard effects followed by dynamic drumming and heavy guitar riffs. It's really an excellent opening. "I could be God.. I could be the devil..." the vocal enters nicely while the keyboard still producing nice repeated notes at background. At 5:12, after the high tone music, it suddenly turns into silent break with ambient keyboard work in spacey nuance. The vocal line enters beautifully in mellow style with no drumming, only keyboard at background.

The remaining tracks are all excellent tracks with "Sidewinder" (11:00), "Memories From An African Twin" (4:02), "Empires Never Last" (9:05), and "This Life Could Be My Last" (10:23). The compositions are really tight.

If you like ARENA, Early Marillion, CREDO, Pallas, etc....you MUST own this wonderfully crafted album. The cd production is also excellent.

Other bands [such as Marillion] should really sit up and take notice of this band. Galahad are the future kings of Neo-prog.

Also check out their other albums 'FOLLOWING GHOSTS' and 'YEAR 0'

Galahad put everything into their music, which takes you on a journey, they are simply one of the greatest bands of modern times. This CD will not be a dust collector, and in time people will realise that GALAHAD is all they need to listen to. Buy this...and be blown away.!!!!!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars 'QUIET' Motorhead!!!!!!!, 11 Oct 2007
This review is from: Bomber (Audio CD)
I wouldn't really recommend this CD. It is the original line up, but they seem to be playing a relaxed, even laid back type of rock n roll.
Not as fast, or powerful as many other Motorhead albums.
Only 3 stars.
