Review by Martien Koolen

Long Distance Calling is a German prog post rock band from Munster and The Flood Inisde is their fourth album. The previous three albums were instrumental albums, but on this new CD you can enjoy Martin Fischer on eight songs and furthemore you hear the voices of Petter Xarlsen and no one less than Vincent Cavanagh of super band Anathema. The album opens with an instrumental song called Nucleus and the first song with vocals is the title track. It kicks off rather heavy, but halfway throught the song becomes more melodic and it ends with a great guitar solo. Tell The End is the leadsingle and it is a rather catchy, or should I say addictive song; maybe the highlight of the album? However Waves and Ductus are also brilliant tracks, mostly due to the amazing melodies in those songs. Cavanagh's voice can be heard in Wecome Change and LDC prove here that they are in for a change. The entire album is rather diverse and the music is awesome and I can really recommend this CD to fans of progressive rock music. Listen and be amazed!
