4 stars Under this bizarre title we have a very talented Canadian band VISIBLE WIND which offers to the good prog music lovers something of a very high quality!An album of a musical richness thet is making the listeners to have an attitude of respect and admiration for such an ambitious musical project!The production is excellent and all the instrumentists are top class.Musically speaking it goes from Marillion influences,sometimes a little SAGA ,but also metallic influences a la DREAM THEATER but overall the personal touch of the Canadioand which have a precise and well defined msuical direction!!The lyrics are both in French and English and that doesn't bother ,because everything is well done and attractive!The diversity of the songs makes the album more interesting and we dig it easily ,because behind the themes presented we have a fluent musical message,and that's the clue of this album!Complex,but accessible in the same time!The most present instrument on this album is the keyboard, and that gives a touch of fantasy music,full of samplers sometimes,but never loosing the sene of melody!It's also original sometimes,bringing some ELP nostalgy in the mind of a pretentious listener,but overall a very,very interesting album that is made with intelligence and masterful instrumental and componistic skills!Definitelly,a musical challenge that provoque any prog listener,but in the end it'll be plenty satisfied by a great musical discovery! Excellent! 4,5 STARS for something fresh and challenging!
