With their 2011 comeback after 23 years of not broadcasting, Comedy Of Errors had already achieved a respectable success. Now they're going to go for it. "Fanfare & Fantasy" is of course again at home in the symphonic Neoprog and delights the fan with melodic, rocky, dynamic songs, which have it in themselves and make mood. Interesting song structures, large keyboard sounds, successful solos and the expressive vocals of Joe Cairney - all this distinguishes the band, which seems to have gained maturity once again. The Scots around mastermind and keyboarder Jim Johnston were already a household name in the scene 25 years ago. Quite a few saw them on a par with bands like Pallas or Pendragon. The fact that it wasn't enough at that time to rise into the very first squad of Neoprogbands was primarily due to the poor quality of the recordings. But it's all gone now. Top produced, this record now shows the true potential of the band, which would have deserved a bigger audience. Even if they don't reinvent progressive rock: It's worth listening!
