Eric Kampman is a polyinstrumentalist who played in the [American] prog band called Now.

His music is very particular, but it has some different influences, like electronic prog or melodic prog or neoprog.

We can find some interesting themes along the whole album, in the vein of some Genesis music, or some Rick Wakeman influences in his soloing ability.

However, a good album for prog fans.
