Review by Conor Fynes
3 stars 'More Homeworks' - Sébastien Gramond (5/10)

Essentially a compilation of some musical ideas that French musician Sébastien Gramond came up with, but decided not to put on a final product, his 'More Homeworks' compilation would naturally show Gramond at some of his most unpolished and abrasive. However, while the compilation and the tracks here certainly feel like largely uncompleted works, the musical ideas that are represented here are- for the most part- quite strong when compared to the rest of Gramond's work, leading one to wonder how they would find their way into the apocrypha of the man's work. As it is, this is a highly eclectic collection of musical experiments from Gramond, and while it certainly cannot be passed off as an album in its own right, there is music here that ironically surpasses much of the music that had made its way onto Gramond's studio albums at this point in his career.

'More Homeworks' is quite a bit longer than the typical Gramond album, featuring two 'epic' tracks at the front and back, along with seven other more concise pieces. Of course, to the typical progressive rock fan, one is going to gravitate towards the longer compositions, which are generally where the best material on this compilation is. 'Happy To Be' is a varied piece that cycles through a great many different ideas and succeeds quite well on some of them, but overall feels very scattered as a piece, giving some reason at least as to why this was left as a demo. The second epic however 'Mourner Love' is quite a surprise to only see it here. A minimalistic epic generally revolving around one musical idea brought on by some remarkably improved vocals from Gramond, the piece gently grows and builds tension, at times risking boredom through repetition, but adding new things along the way to make it more interesting.

Apart from these two pieces which are generally very rooted in progressive hard rock, there are raga experiments, electronic dabblings and a handful of tracks that are quite basic, forgettable and understandable why they might have been left off. 'More Homeworks' may not be a great place to start with Gramond due to its rough, highly inconsistent and piecemeal nature, it features a few quirky experiments from the man that are ultimately quite enjoyable to listen to worth a couple of times.
