    COMEDY OF ERRORS made quite an impact with their bold 2011 album ‘Disobey’. And I had reason to wonder how this Scottish quintet would cope with the follow-up. But great moments in life are worth waiting for…What’s to be found on ‘Fanfare And Fantasy’ are nine compositions which take the magnificent neo-progressive blue print with fluid keyboard figures, incredible guitar playing, polished rhythm textures and remarkable vocals. Each track can impress with creative flourish and is lengthy in its own rite, making a fabulous release that’s over 66 minutes long. Wonderful melodies and intricate passages swim in this ocean of invention. There are grace and passion, power and wide range of dynamics. All members prove their talents. Undoubtedly, Jim Johnston, Mark Spalding and Bruce Levick are superb masters of instrumental flight within a song context. Joe Cairney makes up his splendid performance to help drive the music forward. It’s also pleasant to hear that John Fitzgerald (a new COE bassist) has added extra flavour with some backing vocals. In sum, ‘Fanfare And Fantasy’ is a collection of satisfyingly impressive and compelling tracks. Just spin the album once. And by the second go around you will catch yourself thinking that you’re listening to a future prog classic. It gets my highest recommendation of an essential release for 2013.

    Prog Head! I'm only of Scottish descent, a dual ancestry of untold generations,
    with a lot of generating on the side,
    so when I saw your write-up and saw "it leaves us flabbergasted",
    then I'm satisfied there must be enough bluster and blather for both of us.
    Poor Scots musicians, too late to be the Average White Band,
    even if when the winds blow high the kilts still...

    Comedy Of Errors new work update: It is almost 2 1/2 years since the release of 'Fanfare And Fantasy' which was phenomenally received by fans all over the world. The new album should be called "Spirit". Rob Aubrey has done a fantastic job with the final mix and mastering. The band will soon be sending the master discs off to get sorted and the CD will be released at the same time as the vinyl. The new CD has three tracks:
    1: Spirit (which is split into 10 parts for the sole purpose of iTunes etc but will be a continuous track if purchased as an album) approx 45 minutes
    2: Epilogue approx 6 minutes
    3: Spirit (single edit) approx 4 minutes.

    Hey Prog Head! You got me into it with another band,
    so I had to check this one out, especially because I'm of Scottish descent.
    After listening for a while, I'm surprised you didn't mention King Crimson as an influence.
    I was hoping for a little Average White Band influence, maybe even Paul Young,
    with Pino Palladino on bass, something like that.

    But, not to just be critical, I'm hearing something that's out there far too often.
    My professional band experiences come from a time when you were playing six nights a week,
    to be full time, or playing three or two-nighters to be part-time, with weddings and functions.
    That meant the lead singer developed his voice, as much from singing different styles,
    than just singing every night, working every dance floor and audience.
    This lead singer sounds like a nice young guy, obviously good at self-recording,
    but not having the vocal experience to have that character.
    Even Greg Lake, in King Crimson and then Emerson, Lake and Palmer,
    had a louder, more resonant voice, with more dynamics.

    But then, even as an older player,
    I'm still not changing horses in the middle of the stream.

    Hey John. Maybe, you should try one more Scottish group that sounds like PF with a bluesy tinge. I mean this one..
