No, not that one or that one or that one. This is the newest installment of Museaprog, an almost indigenous sub-genre of progressive rock's most successful label. J'aime le Minimum Vital et Oui! Monsieur JP Boffo joue le guitare tres bien! Le claviers digitale et L'Edhels — incroyable!!! (Yes my French is poor, but not as bad as neo-prog "English"!) Take a bit of that mid period Camel / Steve Hackett / Rousseau melodic rock vein, update it to the 90s with band-saw digital keyboard tones and whip out some pristine guitar / keyboard led melodies and you're somewhere in the area of Drama's succinct instrumental rock. Definitely one that most will like, with further albums they're sure to improve and develop their own personality.
