5 stars I don't remember any Jadis album I dislike, and this case is not the exception.

After 6 years of hiatus, Jadis is back!

Gary Chandler and Steve Christey (a very good drummer if you ask me) returns now with two new cohorts: Arman Vardanyan on keyboards and Andy Marlow on a bass. The addition of these two fellows indeed contribute to a good soundwall for Gary´s always melodic and strong riffs. Vardanyanhas moments in which his protagonism leads the songs with a very original trademark that makes clear he is not limited only to ambiance sounds

What it is a surprise for me is that this work is a sort of "back to the basis"; in terms of style and tempo. I was waiting for a continuance in the way Fanatic and Photoplay were made (a sort of straightforward tunes; with of course, great neo prog elements), but the outcome here are mild long tracks with the Jadis distinctiveness´ lee way in the developing of their compositions with a more modern approach that recap so far, the evolution of the band through aprox three decades.

So, if you are a Jadis fan go ahead and get it ! and enjoy once again the Jadis magic !!

Hope this review helped you
