3 stars A variety of Canadian beats and sounds.

Mystery has heavy but beautiful melodies. This is, I guess, a characteristic of Canadian bands. Their heavyness is a bit different from the great Canadian band Rush. Namely, streaming heavyness rather than strict one (like Rush), and beautiful tune is almost always coming front of heavyness. The first album- titled track Theatre Of The Mind is typical Mystery and awesome. Suppose it's an enough pleasure for us to listen to only the first and the third (Peace Of Mind) tracks. From 4th track, songs are named The Dream suite. Indeed there are full of Mystery's identity and individuality, but with a little regret, I feel a lack of unity in the songs. Exactly, each song is not bad...

After all, this album is not a good progressive rock album but a good rock one.

3 stars Mystery is a canadian band formed in late '80's releasing so far 5 albums, this is their second one named Theater of mind from 1996. For the first time I was struck by the voice of Gary Savoie who is absolutly one on one with the guy from Journey Steve Perry, same tone and same attitude, not a bad thing after all. Gary Savoie did a great job here manageing to cover a wide area of his vocal style. The music to my ears is not neo prog, at least on this album, is more like a cross between AOR not far from Journey albums or Asia with some progressive passages here and there. A good album, specially the vocalist Gary Savoie is a great choice for this kind of music, is a pitty that Mystery will get rid of him later. The album beggins very strong with the title track Theatre Of The Mind where each musician shines, very good piece showing that Mystery know to handle the instruments very well, another worthy trucks are Peace Of Mind and the instrumental one Rythmizomena, excellent arrangements on this one, the only thing unpleasent is that the piece last inly 2 min. So, a good album that deserve 3 stars from me for sure, nothing really impressive but a good one in every way.

3 stars The inner Journey

What immediately strikes the listener while hearing this full length debut by the Canadian band Mystery is just how similar it is to Journey. The lead vocals of Gary Savoie are uncannily similar to those of Steve Perry of said band, but the similarities do not end with the vocals. Mystery's music is perhaps slightly more progressive than that of classic Journey, but if the latter had taken a more progressive turn in the late 70's and early 80's, they actually could have sounded precisely like this. Indeed, if I didn't know better, I could easily have thought that this is Journey! If you like the idea of a more progressive version of Journey, this (and especially the next) album by Mystery is for you. Personally, I enjoy classic Journey, especially the Infinity album, and this appreciation does extend to Mystery's Theatre Of The Mind.

But even if this is high-quality music, it is not particularly original or unique, nor is it purely progressive. If this was the sole album by Mystery, some Prog-fans would perhaps wonder what this band even does on this site. But there are in fact several progressive elements already here (that would become even more pronounced on the band's next album Destiny?). The progressive elements are mostly concentrated to the longer tracks like Black Roses and the title track. There is an appealing mix here between ballads and rockers, and between electric and acoustic instruments (including some lovely flutes). It is well written, well performed, and well recorded. There are some nice brief instrumental interludes between the vocal numbers. I enjoy this!

Recommended, but not essential
