    This review is excerpted from Clayton's October 5, 2003 The Prog Life column found here -ed.

    Heartscore is a two-man "virtual band" (to use the group's own terminology) from Germany. A 10-song disk in the style of 70's so-called art rock, this album presents a lot to love. Vocalist Oliver Hartstack reminds me a little of Peter Hammill from Van Der Graaf Generator, while Dirk Radloff's vocals sound a lot like Ric Ocasek from The Cars crossed with Roger Waters from Pink Floyd. The music is complex from the viewpoint of rock and roll -- that is, this is by no means conventional rock music, but not symphonic either. Expect interesting performances, despite its basic guitar-drums-bass core -- with simple, yet sharp, production. Guitarist Dirk Radloff can roast the score when he lets loose, while the core rhythm engine of Dirk Radloff on bass and -- you guessed it -- Dirk Radloff on drums keeps the proceedings on an even keel. This is one cool album.
