5 stars Hypnos 69 is one of the most underrated bands ever, they have released five albums from 2001 to 2010 and the last two in my opinion are prog masterpieces.

Besides heavy organ sound and fantastic guitar work you have clarinet, mellotron, Moog, saxophone, and theramin to widen the sound of this amazing band, a well-paced approach with the energy makes The Eclectic Measure from 2007 one of the underrated jewels of prog rock.

Progrock, jazz rock and their own interpretation of psychedelia goes throughout this masterpiece, you can tell they really brought a new meaning to space rock in general.

I and You and Me is an intro to this album and it's an entrance to The Eclectic Measure and Forgotten Souls, two tracks that yust take you to a magical world of Hypnos 96 filled with heaviness, great melodies. They just get hold of the listener and launch to a place of amazing musicianship, vocals and lyrics. The Antagonist is a real heavy prog rocker, the fantastic uptempo song led by splendid guitar, organ and rhythm section.

This album, for me, really delivers all the ellements that a masterpiece should have.
