The Colourless Sunrise is the debut full-length from U.K. Progressive Metal band Prospekt. Let me get the Dream Theater comparison out of the way right up front by saying Prospekt's instrumentation, which is heavy on the guitar but with a good dose of keyboards, clean, clear vocals and quick time changes are unmistakably influenced by the long-standing American band. In addition, I also hear some modern touches throughout The Colourless Sunrise that evoke names like Anubis Gate and Symphony X. For instance, the guitars have a much heavier feel and a deeper bite and Prospekt don't overdo the tempo changes or seek out obscure time signatures, so the songs have a smooth, powerful flow. The playing is well executed and Prospekt have a warm, almost "analog" sound as opposed to the clinical, precise and frankly cold sound of many Progressive bands. What The Colourless Sunrise lacks are vocal hooks or choruses that you can sing along with, something I hope the band will remedy for their next release. At the end of the day, The Colourless Sunrise is very good but with a few choruses to pull the songs together, Prospekt could be great.
