3 stars Second album with canadian Robin G. Suchy on vocals. All the music of Gerard is composed by the master of keys Toshio Egawa who's music and manner of playing is rooted in ELP music but also some influences from UK here and there. Anyway this is another good album, the voice of Robin G. Suchy is good to listen the example Analysis of Life is an awesome track, with great key pasages and nice drums. Chaos is another key madness track where Toshio Egawa shows us that is among the best in his genre. The rest of the tracks are good but non essential. Gerard is one of the most important bands from Japan, but they can very well became something more than that in the future, so enjoy Gerard after all a band to remember if you wont bombastic arangements in your music. 3 stars

3 stars This album is released by second incarnation of Gerard. Keyboardist Toshio Egawa is leading figure there as well, but comparing with band's first two bombastic albums, this one is really serious step ahead.

First of all, there are great fusion influenced rhythm section presented, and all music sounds much more modern and complex. If there were mostly kind of ELP -parody heavily keyboards based music, recorded on band's earlier albums, on Pandora's box you can hear quite modern (ok, still heavy keyboards based) fusion influenced progressive rock. UK (band's) influence is obvious, but keyboards sound is much modern, and all music is much better balanced. Even vocals (non-Japanese vocalist this time) are quite pleasant, even if not very original.

In fact, weakest point of this album is composition - if at the beginning it sounds quite melodic, very soon you hear one never ending song. Complex, with competent instrumentation, not very original, but one long song. And your interest to this album decrease very soon.

Much better work then few first albums, this album is still not original enough to become attractive for every prog lover. But for fans of bombastic fusion influenced symphonic prog this music will sound interesting enough I believe.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars It would be some kind of a lie to tell you that this album features some great and new items of music...

What you will discover while listening to this "Pandora's Box" is the usual suspect from the band?

Achieved music, skilled musicians: but what about the song writing or about moving musical parts?

These are alien to my ears. Fortunately, there are a few seconds of nice mellotron available during the long opening and title track.

But that might not be enough, right?

The first time I have rated this album, the score was pretty high (some three years ago: 2007). I guess that I have "grown" up in the meantime and that after having listened to a couple of thousand albums, this changed my mind about this "box".

Even if not great, I would be unfair to tell you that vocals are better under this release (but it was not difficult to tell the truth). As usual, ELP fans might be enthusiast about such a release. Under the same circumstances, I do prefer a band like "Ars Nova" who is playing in the same department but with more skills.

Nonetheless, this is a good album if you are ready to listen to some stuff that you have already listened to. For about a hundred times in my case. Still, there a wonderful moment of music available: the splendid and instrumental "Siren in the Mysterious Sea". Fully emotional: it is a superb musical part which is definitively raising the score of this album.

This is really the only track that "diverges" from the rest which is just average IMHHO. Thanks to "Siren", I rate this album with three stars. Gorgeous keyboards: yes. But, what else?

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Neo Prog Team
3 stars With the arrival of Robin Suchy there seemed to be a breeze of fresh air in Gerard's history.Among the many lives the group was performing around mid-90's Gerard found time to enter the studio at the fall of 96' in order to record another bombastic work.This was meant to be ''Pandora's box'', finally released in March 97' on Musea Records.

From the opening self-titled number things are getting really serious.Toshio Egawa is in an absolute orgasm, performing an over-10-min. powerful Symphonic Rock suite with angualr synthesizers, bombastic Hammond organ and loads of Mellotron in a KING CRIMSON vein around the middle.The remaing three out of five tracks follow the same if not heavier lines.Very dense, keyboard-based Symphonic/Hard Rock with tons of virtuosic synth moves, dynamic pyrotechnics and a huge amount of tehnique in a bit abstract but very enegetic arrangements.''Siren in the Mysterious Sea'' is a different story.Based on sampled flutes, Mellotron and harsichord, this instrumental piece is closer to New Age/Symphonic Rock in a much needed interruption between the heavier ideas of Egawa.The closing ''Freedom'' is again on the softer side.It sounds like an AOR ballad with Suchy's vocal in the forefront with a more aggressive section clodsing it in a synth-drenched enviroment.

Mostly instrumental and tremendously bombastic Symphonic Rock is the perfect style for Gerard and the band's leader Toshio Egawa knew this better than anyone else.Good album, maybe some more melodies could be included.Nevertheless, recommended.
