Kaj?s final words:If you?re a fan of song oriented and keyboard based progrock,then Oliver Wakeman?s latest effort is the perfect choice for you.
Oliver doesn?t walk in his father?s footsteps musicwise,well they?re both into progressive music but Oliver doesn?t compose with the same style and instead focuses on more rock oriented songs on "Mother?s Ruin".
Oliver loves to put layers of keyboards on these songs and I can?t say no to the mighty "In the movies" which is my personal fave,I?m no fan of Kinnaird?s voice and believes this album could be a lot better with a more suitable singer.
Still, it?s a solid piece of work!
