4 stars I don't recall been disappointed with an instrumental progressive rock album. Or maybe it's because I have good taste to pick the best ones? Dean Watson plays all the instruments on this album and with plenty of talents. But I have to say that the technique here is not as important as the atmosphere. There is nice harmony between mood and textures. In fact, it's those different keyboards and guitars textures that seduce me at first listening to this album. Some songs like the title track "Fantasizer", "At Odds" and "Caged Creator" have some infectious grooves. It's really a nice jazz rock fusion release with progressive rock elements sometimes with some heavy guitars in the line of Tony Macalpine. The piano, the keyboards and some of the music are reminiscent of Chick Corea and the other Canadian Nathan Mahl. You can never get bored with the music here, because of the complex arrangements and the rhythm changes. Another nice addition, it's the use of the beautiful vibraphone throughout this release. I just hope that this unknown artist get more recognition in the future with his third album.
