Zen Carnival - Inheritance (1999)

The debut album from this US five piece band who so far has released two albums.

We are deep into progressive rock again. Melodic progressive rock with a mix of neo-prog, AOR, indie rock, symph prog and some Canterbury prog too. Genesis and Marillion meets US stadium rock.

The music is performed with keyboards, guitars, bass, drums and some good vocals.

The music is melodic prog the whole way with some subtle jazz influences too. The musicians does a good enough job here. The vocals is good too. There is a lot to be happy about here. An overall good prog album in the US and neo prog tradition which does not really stand out in any way. In the law of averages, this is an average album. It is a good album too.
