Kerygmatic Project - By Sheer Chance (2013)
The third album from this Italian band.
This band does not play Italian prog rock. Not at least on their two latest albums. I don't know what they did on their first album, though.
What we get here is an uptempo version of what Genesis did under Phil Collins. Mostly on the final four albums under Phil Collins version of Genesis. Add his mega selling solo albums from the 1980s and 1990s too and you get this album.
The vocalist sings like Phil Collins with a voice which sometimes break into soul too. The music is pretty commercial and filled with the worst excesses from the 1990s. That means woodwinds, synths, drums with a plastic sound, bass, guitars and vocals. It does not sound good to me.
There is no really good songs here either. They are decent enough, but not really nothing to feel chirpy about for those of us not into Phil Collins vision of Genesis. Fans of this vision should check out this album.
