Tsunami — Anthem of the Great Wave
(Music Is Intelligence WMMS 020, 1992, CD)
by Peter Thelen, Published 1994-02-01Tsunami are a Dutch five piece of guitar, keys, bass and drums and a very obnoxious lead vocalist who doubles on guitar. This guy is your typical quasi-emotional overbearing neo-clone nasal-whining self-indulgent singer that spent his entire life listening to Saga and Marillion, but doesn't quite make the cut for the impersonators list. When backing the singer, the band cranks out the very derivative sounding stuff that his voice is so well suited for, but when he shuts up they get busy, stretching out into some very nice instrumental interludes that can be very enjoyable... but unfortunately he always comes back! On the 20 minute title track they rip off the opening to Rush's "La Villa Strangiato," but without any of the fast guitar flash mind you, just the chords. All things weighed in, this is a major stinker, and I think few would enjoy this.
