Album Review

This is Persephone's Dream's first album as a group, despite the fact that Rowen Poole and Chris Siegle used the moniker for a previous CD of their material. The presence of a real drummer instead of a machine changes a lot of things, but the project feels more like a group effort, too. The album is dominated by the voice of Karin Nicely, charming and sober. She avoids both power singer and frail girl clichés. The music here is much closer to neo-prog than the metal-esque Opposition. The songs remain straightforward and simple, but include keyboard embellishments and guitar solos associated with song-based progressive rock. The influence of late-'80s/early-'90s Rush can be heard in Poole's guitar style, but also as a whole in "Electronic Exotic," "Full Moon," and "Altar of Desire." At other times one thinks of Lana Lane or even Big Big Train. The performance and production are OK, but have their quirks. For example, "Evident Dreams" is graced by interesting brush work on the drums, but in the closing climax the cymbals drench everything else. "Millennium Moon" and "Euphoria" make strong pieces, but the 12-minute percussion soliloquy of "Earth Dreams" is pure overindulgence and mars the whole CD. Despite its youth-related mistakes, Moonspell held promises. ~ François Couture, Rovi
