4 stars Stunning Canadian progressive rock band who play a highly unique and powerful style of music. NATHAN MAHL deliver a true and highly professional sound with an abundance of mood and theme shifts. Their music is both dark and light, complex and symphonic, loud and quiet, yet always stretching way beyond. When these guys get going they are unstoppable and produce some real sweet progressive sounds which will keep you amazed. Original band member Guy LeBlanc plays some grand and deep sounding keyboards in a classic vein (ie. Not neo-prog'ish). The rest of the band members are also highly skilled musicians: Jose Bergeron adds some great acoustic and electric guitar riffs, Calude Prince slaps in his deep 4 & 5 string bass frets and Alain Bergeron effortlessly handles the drums and percussion department. Songs are generally nice and long (10 min range) and are given lots of room to stretch out and explore "prog land". "The Clever Use Of Shadows" was very well recorded and offers some great musical separation on your speakers with some nice deep tones throughout. NATHAN MAHL are simply one of the best bands I have heard in a long time and I would heartily endorse their music to all good lovers of true mind music.
