Gerard (King Records KICS 2837) and Empty Lie, Empty Dream (King Records KICS 2838) are the quintessential Gerard albums: still connected to Novela's fusion of melodic hard rock and heavy symphonic sound, but heavier on keyboards and slanted far more towards classically-influenced instrumental work than Novela's vocal-driven, extended pop song structures.
Gerard is a bit less consistent, suffering from a muffled and hollow sound and somewhat unassertive rhythm section; Empty Lie, Empty Dream is better in all areas, and perhaps their strongest overall studio work.
Gerard seem to be in their element onstage, where admittedly the nuances tend to wither and the music's essential reliance on pyrotechnics over development comes more apparent.
