Derivative as hell, Mozart will never get big marks for originality, but like Valensia and Robby Valentine these California wannabe's trumped the pomp rock gap in the post - Freddie Mercury era. Attempting to fill the empty space left by Freddie's tragic death, Mozart wanted or tried hard to be Queen for the day bringing in legend Roy Thomas Baker for their debut and spending a king's ransom on an album that failed to ignite any attention brighter than the candelabra that mesmerizes the group on the CD booklet. Quirky and predictably over the top, the self titled debut turned up the volume with a likeable set of tunes that left many Queen fans downright giddy, but the majority of music buyers wrapping themselves in Seattle's flannel flag didn't want to know. The Japanese, god bless 'em lapped it up of course giving Mozart a second and third chance with two more albums 'Eve' and 'Paris Is Dying' respectively.

The Songs
With Roy Thomas Baker on board once again, 'Eve' is an improvement over the debut although perhaps less immediately appealing. Baker's production is impeccable and we expect nothing less, but the songs take a little longer to digest with the classic Queen sound still their bread and butter. At this stage of the game I know longer care if I've heard it all before and just hang on to Mozart's dizzying ride. 'Touche Amore', 'Wicked Heart' and 'An Apology' drip with delicious pomp heaviness although the guitars are a little dirtier in that typical 90's way-like it or not, but the surprise cut is their jazzy cover of Stevie Wonder's 'He's Misstra Know-It-All' which fits perfectly in the Mozart canon as odd as it is.

In Summary
Overall, an enjoyable album, arguably Mozart's best. How much you need it depends on how much you like Queen. If that's a negative, don't bother.
