Well this was the first lp by Clepsydra I listened to: I wasn't so much impressed by this work,this swiss ensemble being totally derivative and not original too. Yet They tried to make us appreciate their attempt to polish the obsolete sound of 80's new prog, by means of fresh ideas, concerning the technology and the guitar effects too, above all... They didn't succeed in solve this question, but They demonstrated to get it during their performance live:I saw a couple of gigs in Switzerland and I was quite satisfied (afterwards They kept on being better live on stage than in their studio's stuff ...); They became more mature and some prog fanzines put them among the best swiss newprog bands (anyway I prefer the newprog work-"Vision in the dark"-by Deyss,or the dark classic prog band Island, in their small jewel "Pictures"). Since the first track of the album you can remark the work of Clepsydra's guitarist-Lele Hofman, showing his good talent, even if He paid a tribute to his master Steve Hackett; while the keyboardist and the vocalist demonstrated a certain maturity as well and afterwards They grew... (honestly the swiss accent of the vocalist is quite visible, but nevermind).The other tracks are characterized by the same permanent waves, this album being homogeneous till the end !!
Recommended only if you are fond of the 80's newprog ...

Clepsydra

Clepsydra labors in virtual obscurity in the Italian Alps of Switzerland. They have recorded four brilliant albums which are, in chronological order Hologram (1991), More Grains of Sand (1994), Fear (1997) and Alone (2001).

Clepsydra's music falls in the neo progressive rock vein along with bands like Genesis, Marillion, King Crimson, Iluvatar, Mostly Autumn, Pendragon and many, many other great timeless artists. The songs are sung in English and their singer, Alu Maggini has a wonderful, relatively high pitched, emotive vox. What is it with Neo Prog Rock bands that they all have high pitched, comparable sounding vocalists? Anyway Clepsydra projects a similar sound to their English contemporaries and in my opinion they out English the English bands.

One of the things I really like about Neo Progressive Rock is that, even in this era, they have not forgotten the power or an organ or a piano or now days a synthesizer. It is a powerful musical weapon and Clepsydra keyboardist Philip Hubert seems to be aware of that. Hubert is a master at emphasizing great keyboard melodies that are a big part of Clepsydra's repertoire.

Another strength of Clepsydra, not that they have weaknesses, is their songwriting which is sublime. It really is amazing how pleasant Clepsydra is to listen to. They are a basic five man band but their sound is mighty and each band member is a master musician. As Neo Progressive Rock goes they are at the pinnacle for clever catchy songs just full of hooks and great lyrics.
