Extremely long album as well: over seventy minutes! But in those remote times, the format was not as such even if "Selling. But this was a masterpiece. One has to recognize that "Half Empty, Half Fool" sounds pretty good. Heavy keys and fine vocals which is not frequent for a German band. I have already mentioned Martin's capabilities in terms of lead singer.
Of course, he sounds exactly as Nicholls who sounds as. And I like this. Udo Lang's guitar work is truly good. THE highlight. And even if the words "Nursery Rimes" appear on "Child Of Hopes", there is nothing great to expect form this song even if Udo is offering a quite decent guitar break again.
Overlong compositions, dull and uninspired music are mostly what you can expect while listening to "Timecode". Major problem being song writing, because musicianship is rather OK Udo being really above average. I'm afraid I can't share the same enthusiasm as other reviewers without written text to defend their point of view.
This album has little to offer even if "Ferengi Lover" doesn't sound too bad after all. Udo Lang is really the one who holds this album on his shoulders. But he can't do no wonders and "Have A Break" is just a disaster. It combines the poorest that neo-prog can offer. Almost plagiarism from whom you might know.
The secong good song here, is Mountain High. It features real passion, which means a lot to me. Needless to say, two good songs are a little short to make a good album. Two stars is the rating. Nothing brilliant, just average music. Average rating is just what this album deserves. Being the music or the vocals. Both are decent, but what's the use to listen to the th sub-par Gabriel? Having said this, songs from "Facing Gravity" aren't bad; but lack in personality.
The most original moment is "Itai". Some Japanese words from the guest Masaru Kikawa during the intro, a fine melody, discreet backing band. A true "Chandelier" song! One of my fave from this album. The ballad "Safe" is not bad either. Martin Eden the lead singer even attempting to sound as Bowie now! The epic "Glimpse Of Home" almost fifteen minutes starts very poorly and one might think: gosh, shall I bear this for a quarter of an hour? Well, things quickly get better and Udo Lang on the guitar play is really worth a listen, the melody is fine and Nicholls rather convincing sorry, it's Martin.
Passionate guitar really. Some bombastic if not pompous keys are taking the role for a while. But not for long. The listener is brought back again into quiet and enjoyable moods. At the end of the day, this long piece also belongs to the good moments from this album. KAS off Course. Tony V.
