The good news about this early Lanfear release is that the production is fairly good, the music is decent but certainly not extraordinary. The bad news is that this incarnation of Lanfear has a different lineup from their phenomenal albums "The Art Effect" and "Another Golden Rage" and frequently sounds like a completely different band than what they would become. The primary difference in this regard is the singer who also doubles as the keyboard player. His name is Stefan Zoerner and he is nowhere near the level of his replacement, Tobias Althammer, who is in another league vocally speaking. Stefan's singing varies from average to just plain horrible, particularly when he tries to sing in a high and whiny tone. It becomes nearly impossible to care about the lyrics during these times. The guitarist, bassist, and drummer are the same talented men whose presence on their following albums is often incredible to hear, but here they are kept in check for most of this release by simplistic, sappy balladesque passages with Stefan's mediocre vocals ruining what already sounds pretty bad. It becomes painfully clear why the lead singer was replaced. Even the new keyboard player, Richie Seibel, is light years ahead of Stefan in talent and creativity. I don't want to take away from a few decent moments on this album, but if I had known the lineup was different from their following releases, both true Progressive Power Metal masterworks in every regard, I would have seriously thought twice about buying this CD. Either "The Art Effect" or "Another Golden Rage" make better first purchases for the uninitiated, while completists might actually want to think twice before buying this one at all. I was so enamored of the aforementioned excellent albums that "Zero Poems" seemed to be a no-brainer.Read more ›

Lanfear has really come into their own with this release. It's got enough similarity among the tracks to sound like it's all by the same band, but each song is distinctly itself - the band does not fall into the "formula" trap and write the same song over and over (which is why we love prog in the first place, right?). Chops are ever-present, but the songs remain listenable to non-musician ears. Vocals are great - all in all, this release is wholeheartedly recommended.
