Numen - Samsara (1998)



The debut album and so far only album from this Spanish band.

Numen's music is in the Pendragon/IQ/Marillion back alley. Neo prog, some call it. The vocals are in English. Their sound is very far from the folk rock dominated Spanish scene. The music is delivered by tangents, guitars, bass, drums and vocals. The songs are medium lenght.

The vocals are pretty thin and not good. Ditto for the sound too. The songs are not particular good either. They are pleasing in a non-offensive way, but not good. This is just one of many bands trying their luck with neo prog and failing in this quest. It is a decent album, but just that. And that does not cut it for me.
