Stutter'Zibe Magazine about The Great Prophecy.
MODEST MIDGET is a Dutch band with a sound that is clearly influenced by the 1970s. One can hear Progrock and Psychedelic Rock influences in MODEST MIDGET’s music as well as some 1960s British Beatmusic (especially vocally), ending up sounding like a mix between MOODY BLUES, PROCOL HARUM, very early PINK FLOYD, THE HOLLIES (“Troubles in heaven”) and 1960s FLEETWOOD MAC (“Coffee from yesterday”), with some KAYAKish guitarwork (such as in the songs “Back from my trip” and “Jorge knows how difficult…”). The band rocks uptempo during the album’s highlight “Buy me!”, which is a rather catchy tune. THE BEATLES influences are also all over the place, just listen to the calm epic semi-ballad “Home seek”. All together a nice very diverse album that combines a big of everything, but is most of the time a tribute to the classic later 1960s and early 70s British way of Pop/Rock, yet with a touch of light 1970s progrock of the YES kind here and there (especially during the lovely calm “The last straw” that features some nice synths/keys). MODEST MIDGET is a very innovative band and perhaps they will be big in 10 years time, because they truly offer something unique and different than any other band out there!
