5 stars Leap Day is around in this weird corner of the music business since 2008 and they have delivered some remarkable albums. Remarkable because of the outstanding music they keep on delivering. But not only remarkable in a positive way. What to think of all those strange titles they came up with? I mean, 'Awaking the muse', what do they mean by that! And who in the world is Skylge??

Anyway, now we have to deal with Deucalion. And at least now I do understand who we're talking about. I also understand the concept they've been working with. It is all explained in the booklets of Chapter 1 and now Chapter 2. I wasn't familiar with the work of mister Velikovsky but after some research on the www I found out he was a close friend to Einstein himself, but he also has made a lot of enemies with his written theories . I think he never could expect that 65 years later a few Dutch musicians would create two albums based on his ideas.

Back to the music. Because that's what we're here for. 'From the days of Deucalion, Chapter 2' is by far the best symphonic record I've heard in a long time! Nine outstanding songs, connected with each other in such a clever way, that's what this cd is about. Very vulnerable moments are followed by harsh and cruel motives. This album is like a musical rollercoaster. Bombastic orchestral moments are followed by funky passages. You can find Chinese music here, but also a true hymn. It's like a free ride in a candy store for my ears! Everywhere you can find tight playing crafty hands delivering the finest rock music you can ask for. Outstanding songwriting and very well played. Especially the voice of Jos Harteveld I like a lot! But great guitar melodies and superb keyboards are also ruling everywhere on this disc. Leap Day find themselves on top of the Dutch progressive rock scene, no doubt about that. Bravo guys! And a huge Thank You for this (again!) wonderful album!
