4 stars Now that we are left the theatre of the mind and accomplish our Destiny to walk Beneath the veil of winter's face, we can now be One among the living. This is exactly the title of the new album from Mystery, and what an album this is! Michel St-Père and his Mystery men have deliver a polish gem that every prog lover should listen. This is not the typical progressive album where the guy's try to impress you with fast line or technical prowess. Don't get me wrong here, the guy's know there things! But the main force of the album is the way that every notes and rhythm are in symbiosis to create a great tapestry of soundscapes and powerful harmonies. The maestro of Mystery, Michel play with passion and grace from the beginning to the end. He is one of the best composer out there. Just listen how he built the progression and how each notes have a meaning and a perfect place. For me, he is the Steve Rothery of my place. But you know, the guitar is only one piece of the big picture of One among the living. Steve Gagné on drum have done a terrific job as usual. And what can i say about Benoit David. Simply put, he is one of the best progressive singer out there! He deliver such a precise and emotionnal performance on the album(listen the first notes of the song Wolf and you will know what i'm talking about).

From the rocky Kameleon man to the bombastic, tragical and epic Through Different Eyes and pass by the uplifting Sailing on a Wing, One among the living is a emotionnal ride that the listener will want to take again and again! Don't let the name of the band be a Mystery for and enjoy!

4.5 maybe a 5!
