In all honesty, having the above musicians didnít excel the music beyond a fairly regular release. You do hear Tony Levinís trademark bass as well as musical similarities to IQ and Jadis. One thing I found to be a pleasant surprise is Steveís vocals werenít the typical style found in this style of music. Now what style of music is it? Iíd say a bit of singer/ songwriter with pop-prog and a splash of neo-prog. Itís not at all complex, in fact itís quite simple and chock-ful of memorable hooks and melodies. I donít see it being on many top favorites of 2005 but I think Steve is an artist to watch out for in the near future.
Emotional Creatures, part one is strongly recommended to fans of IQ, Jadis Arena and Asia. If those bands appeal to you then get a copy today. Oh and for those interested, Steve has plenty of material for "part two".
