Review by Rivertree
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions
3 stars Chris Fournier knows how to do it. Here we have a one man show which can convince, at least partially. 'Upper Level Open Space' is from 1999, his fifth effort what I can see. Multi-instrumentalist Fournier offers a blend of relaxed and grooving sounds, clearly with the focus on contemporary keyboard/electronic stuff. Sometimes reminiscent to Pink Floyd, decorated with acoustic and psych guitar plus sweet melodies. I would say this is a blend of fusion, space and symphonic ingredients. Although coming from the computer the drums are well placed, nearly as performed live.

The opener Stardaze at the Summit is the album's menu card, comprising at once what follows. Quite impressing - speaking of the compositional aspect as well as concerning the implementation. A mini epic so to say, provided with alternating moods. Balladesque, chilled-out, grooving rocking. Guitar work is excellent - well done really. Infinite Visions is ambient spacey arranged - a nice flow - decorated with accentuated piano where Guadalupe from Sierra Diablo comes in a more symphonic outfit.

With Acadia a slight Ozric Tentacles feeling is present and finally Mountain of God closes as another mini epic once again similar to the opening song. The other tracks are okay, but not that spectacular. (Open) space on the upper level? Not really matching if you take it literally and expect classic space rock as such. The main reason is the high proportion of keyboard stuff which appears too modern respectively symphonic. However - this is an interesting atmospheric album containing some enjoyable songs. Solid three stars.
