Sven B. Schreiber (sbs) "Yes", "Karmakanic", "The Flower Kings"... those are the bands that provide inspiration to John Demarkis' music. And the stellar and unique Chris "Fish" Squire, of course. May he rest in peace, in a place where great music like his rules. I'm moved to tears while listening to the homage "Song For Chris Squire - To Fish". All in all, a splendid album for prog rock nostalgics - not revolutionary, but far from being a mere rehash of the music known from the big prog idols mentioned above. Favorite track: Song for Chris Squire - To Fish { Pt I - Heart & Soul.
