4 stars SPACED OUT is the Canadian answer to PLANET X!From this statement it has to begin this review to an album that marks,definitelly, a step ahead to a band composed by some unbelieveble talented musicians!The instigator of this project,the band leader is the monster bass player ANTOINE FAFARD,one of the most spectacular and impressive musicians in today's world,surrpunded y the excellent drummes MARTIN MAHEUX and the atomig guitarero MARK TREMBLAY!A "killer trio,partners in crime "helped this time by ALEX ARGENTO ,a great keyboard player from Italy. !Each SPACED OUT album was a brick to the foundation to build a very solid band,which has a little problem concening the compositions!Sometimes isn't enough to be a monster of technique ,to compose a real song ,with personality and identity seems more difficult than to brilliantly perform at instruments!The prog fusion delivered is in the vein of PLANET X,the Canadian band SPACED OUT propose us some outstanding moments of pure musical wizzardry.BIOMECHANIC,the opening song is like a HELLO!WE'RE BACK with a vengeance!Sometimes we feel that the agressivity of the SPACED OUT compositions is made this way for bringing humiliation to other bands or artists in this style.Of course,to get here needs many hours of practice ,but also a gift from God called native talent.What really miss is the human touch,the feeling of some emitional coomposition and the flood of notes that are invading us ,gives the feeling tahat maybee IT'S TOO MUCH!All songs are very complex musical structures and the technical aspect prevails,hardly we find the componistic basic idea.I feel that some tracks are based on jams and the momentary inspirational mood of each musician!Honestly,in today's music only PLANET X seem to have the technical qualities to be considered rivals of SPACED OUT! SPACED OUT is jazz rock prog fusion on steroids!!! 4 STARS for technique!
