US – The Young and Restless (2006)

US_YoungRestless3.5 out of 5 Stars!

From the Netherlands, this Symphonic Prog outfit has supposedly gone through a ton of turmoil, losing personnel along the way and finding difficulty in maintaining any sort of steady “full band” line-up. Nevertheless, the contributing individuals have released some decent material along the way, with the music sometimes seeming a cross between perhaps The Moody Blues and Genesis with a bit of Yes, Camel, and IQ inspirations included.

Although the vocals are not the strongest in rock history, they are at least tolerable, therefore, US is definitely worth investigation from Prog-Rock fans, especially the band’s earlier albums released from 2002 through 2006’s The Young and Restless, the fourth studio collection overall (and not the famous, long-running soap opera in America). ūüôā
