Staff review by
Frank Bossert is a multi-instrumentalist from Germany but he is also the leader of Eureka, his progressive Rock combo. His fourth album, called "Shackleton's Voyage", talks about Sir Schackelton's expedition which occurred at the beginning of the 20th century. This man wanted to cross the whole Antarctica, it probably was one of the last real scientific expedition ever realized on Earth… And this is also a perfect story for a concept album, especially for something progressive and atmospheric…

A really cute release.
