3 stars Hyacintus was an Argentine project run by the multi-instrumentalist Jacinto Corral. He released three albums under this name and Elydian is the first album in this trilogy.

Elydian is a rather heavy orchestrated album which is leaning far more towards classical music than progressive rock. But there is also some acoustic guitar driven melodies inbetween. But most of the music is very complex with a lot of bombastic melody lines and themes.

This album most of all sounds like a movie soundtrack. For all I know, this is where Jacinto Corral moved to after the three Hyacintus albums. Elydian most certainly showcases his abilities to write film scores.

In it's own right, this is a good classical music/symphonic prog crossover album. There is not really any great music here though. But it is a good piece of music and that is all.

3 stars
