5 stars One of the very best!

I never heard of Mystery, a Canadian band, before. I read some good reviews here on PA, and decided to buy this album... And what a discovery! Thanks to previous really turned me into a Mystery adept. This is exacly the kind of music I love the most. Stong, melodic, well played neo prog. Since I got this album I can't stop playing it. The album is 69 minutes, and there is no filler, all 69 minutes are great. What I want to emphasise is the vocal quality though...This album stands out with great vocals, the voice of Benoid David is superb, and the chorusses are very well done. I'm not going to repeat that Benoid is a Jon Anderson clone, since I think the vocals here are much more AOR then Yes ever was, and remind me of Styx or Yourney.. Clean male vocals of the highest quality. The music is Neo Prog in the best sence...IQ/Arena/Marillion (H-era!) all come to mind sometimes. But above all it's a unique album, with very good composition and superb melodies, and hooks that will haunt you for days. Best tracks....are there something like that on perfect albums? Well...let's see... Wolf (5*), Till The Truth Comes Out (5*), Through Different Eyes III: So Far Away (5*), One Among The Living (5*), Sailing On A Wing (5*), the rest of the album is 4 or 4.5 stars. Masterpiece? F'sure!

Soul Dreamer | 5/5 |
