3.0 out of 5 stars neo-prog gem March 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellently executed album, although the Fates and Rush resemblance is a little too obvious in places. The new singer is better than the guy from Steps, but his melodies tend to become monotonous as he tries to work over the insane, assymetric rythm shifts that characterize this CD. As is the case with many bands of this ilk (ie, Watchtower), they need to learn to calm down in places and give the singer some room to work. That's not to say that this isn't a good album--just that the vocals suffer because the band is so hellbent on being extremely complex all the time. The musicianship is top notch, and the singer is really good--he's just in a tight spot. If you're into Fates or Rush, or even to a lesser extent the Police, this album should interest you.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! February 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Sieges Even 'A Sense of Change' is an absolute progressive Tour de Force of a recording. In what ranks in one of my top 5 favorite progressive metal CDs I've ever heard, this mid-period recording from the German quartet will take you from the highly complex to the extremely melodic and everything else in between. The song writing is superb, the musicians are top-notch and the production is absolutely crystal clear. Those looking to whet their "metal" roots will not find that characteristic here. Instead, this recording contains more of a fusion or lighter-mood approach, mainly led by the ala'-Alex-Lifeson (Rush) sound & brilliant arpeggio guitar work of axeman, Markus Steffen. And as a fellow drummer, I can't think of a better musical and "part-oriented" drummer as Alex Holzswarth (outside of Mark Zonder from Fates Warning). Jogi Kaiser, vocalist, creates plentiful melodies that still causes the "chill machine" to kick in when I listen to the CD (which makes me wonder why he wasn't used on any other future Sieges Even recordings). For those looking for the complex arrangements (with great melodic structure as well), try tracks such as "The Waking Hours," "Behind Closed Doors," and "Prime." And for a journey through the light orchestral quartet sounds, try the poignant "Change of Seasons" (wow, those lyrics KILL me!).

But, what would a review be without some warning shots fired, right!? I must admit, when I first listened to this CD, I was a bit irritated by the little extra musical "tags" put at the end of every phrase. The songs are very busy and loaded with constant changes, but what completely outweighs those would-be-negative characteristics is the presence of great SONG underneath all the "fluff" in every track.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected from the reviews October 6, 2006
By Brian
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD based on the numerous 5 star reviews I read here. All I can say is, it didn't strike me the way it struck those other reviewers. I enjoy Rush, Fates Warning and Queensryche - as so many reviewers drew parallels to these bands. Are there similarities - yes, but I'll take the originals over Sieges Even pretty much any day.

There's talent here - no question about the musicianship of the members of this band, but for the song construction - it wanders and is littered with 'noodling' and constant tempo and key changes that after a while, just flat out became irritating. It seemed that just when a song began to coalesce, some needless key change, or irritating noodle would mess the composition up. I got sick of it. It seemed that there were constant changes just for that reason - no intrinsic value at all.

Quite frankly, if you want to buy this CD, I'll be selling mine on Amazon Marketplace pretty soon - cheap -.

This CD was just plain irritating.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the true gems in progressive music August 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Back in 1991, Sieges Even, a Progrock/metal band from Germany, made a perfect album. If you're a fan of progressive bands such as Fates Warning or Rush, you should get this album, it's really an essential album. The musicianship is executed perfectly and the singer fits to this kind of music just nicely. Jogi Kaiser (The Singer) really has THE voice, the range to impress you with every listening. He also does some amazing tricks with his voice. The drummer also shines here, his style is HIGHLY progressive and insane at times. I haven't heard this complex yet acceptable drumming ever. 'A Sense Of Change' is one of those albums which gives you something new everytime you listen to it. Highly recommended.
