Taï Phong - Windows

Look at all those rainbows in the cover art, trespassing even the shameless samurai. That's a reflection of the multiple keys work on this dreamy little album. The guitar helps to create a rainbow of soundscapes. This second album from the french symphonic katana managers stabilished a lot of melodic lines that would became the definitive 80s symphonic rock style. Funny, they are from the 70s, so there are trippy psychedelic dreamclouds surrounding Windows (the fantasy electronic work is the highlight of the album), lenghty suite format tracks and stuff, but even so, the painful pre-80s melodic lyrical type made them underrated. In fact, I can disarm a few of the 80s bands that clearly stolen Taï Phong's Windows melodies in a way or another. So, give them a try. It's just like Supertramp keyboardists lovesick crying after a mushroom tea party eating seagull's meat as vegetarians who don't want to follow rules anymore. Specially for Pink Floyd/Yes fans suffering from a psychological trauma because can't stand living with the parent's at 42.
