3 stars A moderatly known band from neo prog zone coming from Canada with 5 albums in thier pockets so far. Emergence from 1994 is a good album whwre the arrangements a la Marillion, specially in guitar parts melt very well with their own twists resulting a fairly decent album to my ears. The voice is ok, nothing groundbreaking but fits more then good in the music sound and some very intresting instrumental passages are present. A more guitar oriented album then previous two but aswell the keybords are present more or less on each piece giving a more eleborated sound. The opening track is for me the best Sweet perdition, nearly 15 min of pure bliss, the instrumental parts are killer in the first 9 min when enter the voice, excellent musicianship and atmosphere. The guitar is superb on this track giving a Floydian influencewith spacey solos, the keyboards aswell are killer here, what a damn solid tune in the end. The rest of the pieces are ok, nothing is bad but nothing is really impressive like the opening track. Visible Wind remind me in places with germans High Wheel in manner of aproaching the neo prog zone. So, good towards great in places but definetly not as solid and inventive as their ext opus Narcissus who is their best work for sure.
