Review by erik neuteboom
3 stars This is the debutalbum from the Brasilian band Tisaris. It contains 13 tracks that in general sound bombastic, evoking early Marillion (keyboards) and Pink Floyd (Gilmourian guitarwork), featuring lots of shifting moods, breaks and soli. The violin solo in the opener "Animee" is very moving and showcases the variety that Tisaris offers. I agree with fellow reviewer Geezer that this album suffers from a bad production. Nonetheless, Tisaris has made a promising debut-CD that sounds very pleasant and entertaining but there is not an inch Brasilian in Tisaris, they could have been a British or USA band.

3 stars Tisaris is one of the better examples of symphonic prog acts from Brazil in the early '90s. Offering 3 albums in that period Tisaris manage to recive aplauses from listners and respectable reviews specialy for their second album Once Humaninty. Issued in 1994 their second album is considered by fans their best from all 3. The debute album see the light in 1992 and is named What's beyond. This is a fairly good symphonic prog album with lots of instrumental sections and bombastic arrangements, all are pleasent and well played. There are some complex instrumental sections that are really awesome, specially the guitar chops are intresting for sure. The sound is not among the best I've heared on a prog band, but hey what the heck the music really matters after all, at least to me. So, a very decent and fair work by this unknown brazilian band, is clear that they worked hard on this release, but I can't say is something really excellent and inovative. Fans of symphonic prog can take some spins I think Tisaris worth to be discovered by many listners as possible. Similar maybe at some point with High Wheel, and bands who incorporated in their symphonic prog arranagements spacey long instrumental parts. 3 stars for sure.

4 stars You will liket it if you like piano driven symphonic prog. It is a very nice, promising, debut for the band. It clearly borrows to Pink Floyd (Chorus and drums in the last track are straight out of The Wall), mixed with a tint of Supertramp / Roger Hogdson (A sinner), and some neo-prog influences, ...

3 stars TISARIS ? Whats Beyond First album of a very interesting brazilian band. They come from Lavras, a small town with a fine university and crowded with students, which leads to a good environment for musical creation. I was presented to them in the first half of the nineties in the city of Belo ... (read more)

3 stars **1/2 An average album by this interesting Brazilian band. The name Tisaris means "the bridge to quintessence". This is their debut album. It's a concept album with many tracks extracted from the rock opera "The Story of Blaze and Darkman", a tale about two ordinary but opposite characters in th ... (read more)
