3 stars Oh, some albums are really hard to rate! Iīve been listening to Above The Storm for quite some time and still it does not click me. In theory it has just about everything I like in prog music: the instrumental is strong and creative, the musicians are excellent and the arrangements and performances are tasteful. The only part I really didnīt like was the vocal department. Not that Daniel Guathier is a bad singer, no! Itīs just the case his vocal style is not my cup of tea. I think he should get a real good singer and then things would improve a lot.

Well, at least thatīs what I can pont my finger at. The rest is just alright, I really liked Guathiers instrumental side. He plays great bass, good acoustic guitar and real fine synphonic keyboards. Gaston Gagnon is a terrific guitarrist and his solos are one of the CDīs highlights. The music is an interesting mixture of prog folk, symphonic rock plus some blues and jazz bits here and there. I donīt know why he is labeled as neo prog, but then it is hard to define his music anyway. Itīs quite varied and I can say there is no bad moments. Nothing really excited me, but still the music is good. It just does not fit my current taste, I guess. So 3 stars will do it for me.
