5 stars BRIGHTEYE BRISON is a Swedish group that was high on PROG foundations origins as GENESIS, ELP, YES, GENTLE GIANT (which I always read as much harm to their base despite his musical energy) and later Magellan or THE FLOWER KINGS. He also took more northern groups as influences ANEKDOTEN, Landberk and was able to introduce himself themes for WOBBLER more recently. In his titles often drawers, one can if one tends a little ears hear reminiscences of TOTO, ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, YOSO and even some basic agreements in the eternal touches everything JOE JACKSON. Do not forget that one of the musicians worked in ANGLAGARD too. Suffice to say that hand on complex sounds of epic symphonic structures with wagons, musical jolts, vocal harmonies and stellar arrangements, while keeping a cool frame by his willing breaks returns. In short, Brighteye BRISON released his 5th album entitled "V"; it is with "stories" in 2006 that I became acquainted with their music being inveterate fan of GENESIS, but that we do not care, let's get to what this latest installment in the belly and do not tell "it is my understanding it is a revival of GENESIS YES, it's good I see where it will take me if I listen to" listen, not read! (Please !!!) let's get to what this latest installment in the belly and do not say 'that's it I realized it is a revival of GENESIS YES, it's good I see where it will take me if I' listening, "listen, not read! (Please !!!) let's get to what this latest installment in the belly and do not say 'that's it I realized it is a revival of GENESIS YES, it's good I see where it will take me if I' listening, "listen, not read!

3 titles, 3 titles for more than 66 minutes of music, then you install: 3, 2, 1: 'The Crest of Quarrel "starts thus with the shortest title, the one with the newest sound in my opinion; Here the sounds remind me MAGELLAN and last time of the great GENESIS with the tunes of "Duke" for example YES and often maligned, one after 76, shorter but more technical in my opinion. Otherwise, we are dealing with an anthology of notes taking to a prog universe by combining convolutions times phrasing, musical then both at the same time; it's beautiful, intense, almost epic and the end of melody 11'35 '' will remind you a little dinosaur which bit them in their cradles! "V" and 17 minutes Air intro flirts on the YES time "Owner of a Lonely Heart" and then start up to 1'35 '' makes you surrender; sound mix, it's even a riff hard limit, but very quickly to 4 a break with synth organ and accordion support from a guitar arpeggio attracts the ear; it put the voice to melt the most recalcitrant to guitar solo enjoyable, the organ always in the background putting pressure on the memories; then a return with this bass to the "Steppin 'Out" JOE JACKSON even CHRIS SQUIRE done from that title to the austere territories prone to daydreaming. Back with part phrased almost too conventional and a tour guitar then climb to synth-piano solos. A little further, it is to the organ T. BANKS one is brought with digressions almost jazzy at times, to bring even further in the time of proto-prog? Personally, it reminds me the rhythm breaks on "90125" thereby avoiding long trademark titles ... YES !! Yessien

"The Magician II Chronicles share" or following the penultimate album for just 36 minutes musical maze, for the most gross way, the most archaic, the most violent too; to digress notes bringing the neophyte to fall naked before so much innovation, for one who follows and knows just a wonder to see the dial and associate sounds with melody tunes of large groups mentioned above! ... at 3'15 '' I thought they were going to sing "yes" as on one of the albums of their master out. Well, what if it is that this title is as a letter in the mail with a succession of rhythms, tunes quite different from each other and a voice repeating the common thread to avoid too disperse. There are plenty of sounds more or less heard by my ear which adds nicely to being seduced and conquered. Note also that snub to 9'30 '' to YES symphonic and air 12 'necessarily somewhat reminiscent of "The Gates of Delirium" Roine STOLT even at that time, so reprocessed BRIGHEYE BRISON and break dreamlike; there is even the "Supper's Ready" a little further is that the ears are for their anvils and hammers other! There is also bombastic tunes, festive, a little medieval who would go so well for Soundtrack Film! Around 25 minutes another tense at the organ that melts again, once we remained unmoved. And to drive the point (and not the anvil if you have followed) a little further I will let you wait for the piano 24'50 '' which leads you to the referral of the organ of 25'10 "for a moment ambience Cathedral spleen. The voice again and again a little gypsy tunes and good jazz guitars association from shoving the place given to the organ. Hop! And about 32 minutes still air "Steppin 'Out" (yes I fell in small and yes I like it !!) to recalibrate the title and starting toward a final rock with his guitar before and powerful choruses. That's it, it's over! yet the tune of "Steppin 'Out" (yes I fell in small and yes I like it !!) to recalibrate the title and starting toward a final rock with his guitar in front and powerful choruses. That's it, it's over! yet the tune of "Steppin 'Out" (yes I fell in small and yes I like it !!) to recalibrate the title and starting toward a final rock with his guitar in front and powerful choruses. That's it, it's over!

Well, what about that huge CD? Oh, great for descaling pregnant; to make a small regression too long on the 70s version of Hammond organ, spleen, joyful sadness, go an oxymoron by one !! For the rest, focus, sound there is very good but I'm missing a little more personal to bring this group at the highest level. In fact I find this very good album, incorporating the best original groups without repetition either, but I lack a bit of pure creation.
