Fairy Tale: That Is The Question

The seed for Fairy Tale came from the bands creator Peter Kravec (Guitars, sound design, and anything else) during his college days, and although they never crossed my radar, the band has been making music in one form or another since 1995. The band has touches of neo-prog, pop, ambient, and vocalist bass guitarist Barbora Kolarikova often has a punk like approach in her delivery. The songs contain a variety of the elements I mentioned, but compositionally, they don’t mesh. My favorite track is the instrumental “Wise Men Keep Silent” as it seems to be the most cohesive song. “Sophie” is an 11+ minute track that gets messy as the stops and changes are choppy. This is Frankenstein songwriting to my ears. You can’t just put this piece here, and that piece there and expect it to work.

Kolarikova has an excellent voice, but I don’t care for the way she uses it. The production takes the life out of the performances, and although the music is well played, it often feels stiff. There are interesting musical moments, but the overall structures are convoluted, there is little in terms of “songs” here to my ears.
