3 stars Such a talented guy, this Stéphan Desbiens is! I just wish he would decide which style of music he prefers cuz I find myself feeling a little disappointed when he does one great song but then it's followed by another that's in a completely different style--which I often don't like. (E.g. "They" and "So LOw" and then "Big Face" and "Anger, Part 3") I mean, I can be in love with one song, absolutely hate the next, back and forth. (I own both "Shimmering Lights" and "The Sagarmatha Dilemma") Though I do love both "Conspiracy" and "Poussière and lumière." So there we have it: four great songs two mediocre ones and three that I do not like at all. So, give the album a 3.5 stars rated down for inconsistency and multiple personality disorder.

3 stars The difficult trade-off between diversity and cohesion. The D Project is the brainchild of Stephane Desbiens, Canadian singer, guitarist and keyboard player. The music on Big Face can perhaps be described as dark symphonic prog rock (King Crimson, Pink Floyd) entwined with some 'deviant' prog m ... (read more)

4 stars Big Face is the third release from the neo-prog band The D-Project. The D-Project plays a form of classic neo-prog that is showcased by bright uplifting riffs that mark the sign of a great understanding of musicality within the group. Also, there is always a slight hint of Pink Floyd without thei ... (read more)

5 stars I love this album, even if it took me several listens, because it offers several styles of music.The first song "They" offer a strange mix of Pink Floyd and King Crimson with M.Tony Levin himself. "So low " is the pop song of the album. "Anger Part 1 & 2 "offers a very great mix of Pink Floyd and G ... (read more)

5 stars It's a good one! We have several styles on this cd. The first song "They " with Tony Levin is great and the chorus with female vocals reminds me of Pink Floyd, My favorite song is Anger Part 1 and 2 with his gentle acoustic guitar parts, the violins, cellos and his guitar solo. The title track ... (read more)
