Je oller, je doller? On Supernal Endgame, this Ü50-Prog troupe from Dallas, this saying certainly applies, because on their second CD "Touch The Sky: Volume II" the Texans present themselves as a formation washed with all waters, which arranges their songs in a varied way and lyrically likes to convey their Christian faith without being missionary. Since the first album, the former trio has been restructured again, so that the core line-up now consists of five musicians, whereby the band founders John Eargle (voc, g) and Rob Price (voc, dr), who have been playing together since the seventies, once again prove to be true multi-instrumentalists. Guest musicians who have been engaged as guest musicians include guitarists Dave Bainbridge (Iona) and Carl Baldassarre (Syzygy), who further enhance the nearly eighty-minute work. The synthesizer sounds are too prominent and sometimes too "cheesy" in the overall context. Supernal Endgame, on the other hand, approach their songs with a harmonic and melodic ingenuity that lets this CD loosely stand out from the crowd.
