I have yet to hear the band's often detested previous album Somersault, but judging from the present album Jadis did not change anything in their sound and approach since their first two albums. Still, Understand is a fine release and a good album in the typical Jadis style. It is not as good as the delightful Across The Water which is my personal Jadis favourite, but it sits well in their discography.

Like their previous albums, this one too follows a very similar formula. Jadis makes pleasant and enjoyable music without the edge and dramatic twists and turns of some other Neo-Prog bands. As such it risks coming across as rather understated and tame in the ears in many visitors to these parts, but it will certainly please some. The individual tracks don't differ from each other enough to deserve specific comments. The whole album is enjoyable and very well produced music.

One of Jadis' better albums, recommended to those that liked their previous albums
