3 stars A few weeks ago , reading and posting in a thread of the forum section of our beloved site, someone pulled a list in which contained A Triggering Myth (being for a while at the back of my want list), so I headed down to the library and ordered the only album available. This group was almost unknown to me before.

I am always a bit careful of solo or duo works like this one. Only two musicians (two keyboardists on top of it) handling a small palette of instruments with some guests for the others. Although most of the music is quite pleasant (sometimes enthralling) evolving close to Canterbury style but also towards more symphonic moments, I find myself all too often asking this question: what is the point of making this kind of stuff, heard hundreds of times before and elsewhere? Aside from the obvious answers such as the need for the musicians to free themselves and expresses their needs , their joys and pleasure (all very good answers) I am wondering if they could not dare be a bit more personal. The real problem I found is that the writers are playing and composing on the same instruments therefore not taking advantage of composing on guitars or wind instruments (the palettes are very different) and the fact that all tracks are instrumental (non-vocals) make for serious weaknesses in an otherwise good debut. I do not know what their later albums are like , but this album gives good ideas on how to develop a group and makes me want to listen to another abum of theirs.

A very imperfect but promising debut.
