The Luxembourg Neoprogger No Name was an institution, popular and well-known everywhere. Three years after their dissolution, ex-no-name singer Patrick Kiefer and ex-no-name keyboardist Alex Rukavina founded TNNE. Their debut "The Clock That Went Backwards" is characterized by keyboard passages reminiscent of Genesis. The opener "My Inner Clock" already covers the auditory canal with lilac-coloured feather cushions and embeds keyboard sounds of heavenly beauty on them. However, their Neo-Prog can only call itself progressive in terms of track length. Although it is quite elaborately constructed overall and also designed quite impressively in terms of sound. But the monster track "Circles Of Life" is followed by a rather insignificant interlude with "Welcome To My New World". TNNE provide us with an overall routine service. But their songs in the middle of the album are too conservative. Nevertheless, "The Clock That Went Backwards" is a very intimate work of a band that dares a new beginning and from which one can expect a lot in the future.
