BunChakeze "Whose Dream?" is a strange release. Debut album,released 25 years after it was recorded. Release of the band which never had any other releases during all these 25 years. Sounds crazy? Well, this is exactly what happened with BunChakeze album Whose Dream?. The former three founded the band, helped build a studio in exchange for recording time and then hired the Lugassy to fill in the role of the until then missing vocalist.
It's safe to say that this is definitely a progressive band and a virtuosic one at that. Bun Chakeze have the ability to write biting, fast, aggressive pieces of music (see the track "Bun Chakeze ") and quickly shift into serene and highly melodic phases (see "Whose Dream").

BunChakeze – Whose Dream? By Conor Fynes on November 10, 2012. Pin It. Here is an album with quite a unique story behind it. From the ashes of an early ’80s rock group Odin of London, a handful of aspiring Brits decided to take their music in a new direction, akin to that of the classic prog rock scene that had since died down years before. Through ample determination and perseverance, the band that would call themselves BunChakeze finally started making sense of their ideas and music, finally finding an American singer by the name of Joey Lugassy to sing for them

NotesReview From Prog Archives Sept 2010 -
Bun Chakeze show a lot of skill and strength with this particular album, Whose Dream.
It's safe to say that this is definitely a progressive band and a virtuosic one at that. Bun Chakeze have the ability to write biting, fast, aggressive pieces of music (see the track "Bun Chakeze [Instrumental]") and quickly shift into serene and highly melodic phases (see "Whose Dream"). A note is never wasted with guitarist and backing vocalist Colin Tench, who is always on top of his game, filling in spaces with his rich guitar sounds, somewhat reminiscent of David Gilmour in Pink Floyd's heyday. Not mentioning vocalist Joey Lugassy would be in bad taste, as he has a very dreamy, ethereal voice that blends in well with the rest of the band, especially on their softer pieces. His vocals can also become a bit aggressive, which fits in extremely well when this is utilized to mesh with the music. Gary Derrick and Cliff Deighton add a very solid rhythm section on bass guitar and drums, respectively.
Regarding influences, it's somewhat hard to say who Bun Chakeze's are. A significant amount of Pink Floyd perhaps, maybe some Rush, and a helping of 80's pop a la Kansas is probably the best way to describe the sound, though that still doesn't serve them justice. Regarding their at-times intense instrumentation, Yes has probably been an influence more-or-less. I also hear a bit of Peter Hammill, and to a lesser extent Van der Graaf Generator.
But the real fact here is that Bun Chakeze have made an original sound of their own, and a quite eclectic and enjoyable album with 'Whose Dream.' The album gets better with each listen and is a grower rather than being super-accessible on the first few listens.
