Review by Greger
4 stars I don't understand that much of the text in the CD booklet as it's entirely written in French. What I can find out from the booklet is that this Swiss band was formed in the seventies. They released their debut album "At King" in 1985 on the French Musea label (FGBG 4017 AR). Two years later, in 1987, Musea released their follow up album "Vision in the dark". The music on this album though was recorded live during spring 1979. Unfortunately the recording isn't very good so I think that if you haven't heard the band before, it might be hard to decide whether this is really good or not. What you hear though is typical 70's instrumental progressive rock in the same vein as CAMEL, EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER, GENESIS, PINK FLOYD and YES with many extended soloing, rhythm changes and skilled musicians. The music is very good and I really would've wanted to hear a proper studio album with these tracks. I think that DEYSS will have a new album out later this year. I have a feeling that it will be something really great.

1 stars This is looked upon by many reviewers as a good neo prog album, but I must say it turns me completely of. The music is bad and and the sound quality disasterous. This is not worth my or your time. This is absolutely only for the all eating neo prog fan. I cannot recommend this at all. 1 star is fair here.

1 stars Thick cd jewel case includes one disc and 52 (yes 52!) pages booklet with many rare photos and written in French detailed early days history. Looks great. A pity music isn't great. It's early days rough demo or live material. Young teenagers plays on weak instruments with weak skills. Album on ... (read more)
