Jack Yello – Xeric (2009)

JackYello_Xeric4.5 out of 5 Stars!

On Xeric, its second and (unfortunately) final album, Germany’s Jack Yello successfully replicates the original Marillion sound, only with an updated/heavier style when it comes to the guitar and rhythm section.

Be that as it may, lead vocalist Dirk “Bovie” Bovensiepen is often strikingly similar to Fish when it comes to his tone, delivery, and accent, so fans of early Marillion platters will likely enjoy this high-quality collection of Neo-Prog tracks as much as I do.

Sadly, Jack Yello seems to have fallen off the radar, but if the band is still indeed an active entity, I sincerely hope this talented lot creates more material of this nature for future release.
