5 stars SEVEN STEPS TO THE GREEN DOOR is a group I met in 2008 with "Step in my world 2" surfing on a singular fusion related productions Mr Bungle it is true! The following "The Book" was more seduced me by incorporating a mixture of phrasing, trumpet, jazz, death metal, clarinet, rap staccato words in level, vocal harmonies to a tote better organized. At references or genres, one hand on very disparate groups from THE TANGENT to DAMANEK, TOXIC SMILE, of FLAMING ROW, TIGER MOTH TALES, CAMEL, of RESISTOR (remember his eye on 'underground' ) and PROJECT PATCHWORK. Personally I will add the AYREON, the Haken, of FAITH NO MORE, JOE JACKSON and SYLVAN'S. We are thus at first sight in the crossover-fusion to fusion definition. In pure musical level, it is a concept album like the good old days when the various titles are linked to as and more or less logical and Dante with growth for the last 3! The texts themselves relate religious fanaticism, their constraints and their impact on our society (in this case, the impact on an illegitimate child and consequences). At level musicians and singers, not less than 11 and 8 of the above groups and others for a singular work. Well, dive in! their constraints and their impact on our society (in this case, the impact on an illegitimate child and consequences).

" AT? I "opens the way with phrasing and a battery as the introduction of the story sung and played," Salvation "continued Clarinet and more and greater orchestration," A price to pay-I "follows with the first real title sound AYREON with synthesizers and guitar riff fat, voice ensuring the transition from more song provided with different voices. a rock sensation was vintage hard limit with an energetic guitar solo on a good battery present. "A Dream That I strayed" adds sax on guitar and clarinet for a developing trend in 2019 as these often reserved for jazz instruments make their big splash here; is singular but not hurt. "A price to pray-II" denotes literally from the start with a rhythm to DREAM THEATER, Song approaching by the energy released from TESSERACT or HAKEN; a death metal voice and limit an aside with an air "Russian Gypsy" and a chopped violin, somewhat surprising more. "A dream - II" brings a gently coolest development, almost clear, almost classical music with a female voice to male associated to the Marco SYLVAN'S; a guitar solo leads back to more rock style. "A? -II" prolongs the effect with a return voice phrased leaving "Heaven" from a prog atmosphere to see NEAL MORSE THE TANGENT about 1'30 '', almost a temporal aberration for these two groups mentioned !. The plus is that these titles chained with different musical well drawers pleasantly pass from one to another. Let us come to the last 3 titles that are for me the best of the album:

"Hear my voice tonight," follows a neo-prog sound accentuated, then a digression jazzy sax and guitar with alternating smooth and fast paced, all with piano tunes JOE JACKSON; it's beautiful, looking, innovative to find a new melody from old rhythms at the base; the effect of the atmosphere of the disc takes guts and gives a clear soundtrack over the tracks, while the principle of progressive rock actually. "Come to your father" comes as the climax to 10 'without interruption; was the AYREON rather one of "The theater equation" coincidentally with guitars and synths chopped was of THE GATHERING, the STREAM OF PASSION in the preamble with a voice to Allen. The guitar is strong, fruity, quick on a metal-prog crescendo enjoyable; Note to 2'35 '' pure acoustic air, light guitar and a drawn development of an album MIKE OLDFIELD, it's almost disturbing because we do not expect it at all, then it's an air of ALAN PARSONS PROJECT happens; to 7 'was downright right to a general recovery in fireworks and a quieter final limit room bringing a form of serenity and these are not the final seconds with nervous riff that will change anything, except to put the CD on the way!

Melting pot of sounds, a prog crucible melting, the voice worked on pulling the rock opera, instruments jazzy at times, a rise of unique styles but belonging to the progressive sphere, group names that suggest to ... but what a purely unique sound SEVEN STEPS tO tHE GREEN DOOR! An album to decipher but which is relatively easily cut through securities. An album by disturbing fusion of different genres, a remarkable album ultimately to integrate what is currently best in the musical movement PROFILE PROG prog metal section.
