About this release

Noise #N 0218-2

There are two different "Parallel Minds" versions: the vocal sessions are different on "Water Confines" and "Silent Crying" is a little longer on one of the releases. Both include the lyrics to the Japanese bonus track "Black on Black".

Thanks to colt, diamondblack for the updates

'Parallel Minds', Conceptions second album, vastly improves upon its predecessor. The songwriting seems more confident, with more interesting guitar riffs, a good use of keyboards and vocal melodies that seems more in sync with the music.

Sadly however, despite a few highlights, it's still a rather forgettable record.

Song's like 'Roll the Fire', 'And I Close My Eyes', 'Water Confines' and the title track are all decent enough, but the truth is, this is nothing more than generic progressive/power metal. There's countless other things out there that are so much better and memorable, that I never find myself coming back to this.

It's not a terrible release, and it does have its moments, but ultimately, let's face it, the only reason worth buying this today is if you're a fan of Roy Khan, who's post-Conception career would see him garner worldwide fame with the band Kamelot.

This is CONCEPTION's second album released the same year as the debut in 1993. Same lineup except but they have added a keyboardist. I really like the cover art and when i compare the music here to the debut this one is much more dynamic and powerful. There doesn't seem to be a lot of love for this one i suppose because it is straight-up Prog-Metal but i'm a big fan of this style of music so it works. In fact this one doesn't stray far from the early Prog-Metal albums of the eighties. This is my favourite CONCEPTION album just over "In Your Multitude" but i haven't heard their final album "Flow" yet.
