4 stars Eidolon is a young French trio from Reims (North East of France) born in 2004, featuring a keyboards/guitar player, a violin/bass player and a drummer, all singing. "Dreamland" is in fact the musical version of a complete show with dancers, lightshows, shadow plays... This adaptation of a poem by Edgar Allan Poe has been divided here into seven parts. Eidolon often sounds like Pink Floyd and Pulsar. This is a mainly instrumental music full of atmospheres and effects, alternating contemplative or experimental moments with floating keyboards, with more progressive rock landscapes, where lyrical electric guitar parts bring a lot of emotion and sometimes wildness. The atmospheres are enhanced by a string quartet and soft melancholy vocals, sometimes a bit clumsy. This is the only drawback of this beautiful and intense music. If you liked "Halloween" or "The Strands of the Future", listen to the main track of this album, a 20' gorgeous epic ("La Neige des Lis Inclinés"), and you'll understand this record is for you
