SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Heavy, RPI, Symph, JR/F Canterbury Teams
4 stars The leader, singer, guitarist and keyboard player St'phane Desbiens firstly known for his band Sense decided to move on his own because he wanted more freedom. Sense was becoming a band difficult to keep together with a singer living too far. Since then Stephane has continued to make the same kind of Retro-Prog in his modern way with some big guest musicians from the prog scene. This time he had the help of his son in the bass position and he has kept his longtime relationship with producer Andy Jackson who his an obvious choice for a band that makes music with a Pink Floyd influence. The result is still brilliant with some elaborate arrangements with piano, flute, sax, and violin. However, the music still has that guitar-oriented (acoustic and electric) sound going along this identifiable voice of Stephane. The compositions are never too complex, "Crude Reality" is a fine example with his Genesis intro, his simple chorus to sing along, that gets heavier in his second part. The music is built around strong melodies containing a perfect balance with some delicate, melancholic atmosphere, and heavy passage with a crunchy guitar sometimes reminiscent of King Crimson. This is another good addition to your D-Project collection or your whatever kind of prog you want to call this 50 minutes album that goes so fast.

2 stars The usual top-notch instrumental performances from Stéphane and guests trying to melt multiple styles and structures into the framework of single songs. The justifications for such odd, hodge-podge, patchork compositions are only, as always, in the mind of M. Désbains; as usual, they don't really make sense (or pleasure) to me. I'm surprised producer Andy Jackson (whose rendering of sound quality is great) allows these often disjointed and incongruous sections to end up in their final sections. Perhaps the Stéphane-Andy team have a vision that progressive rock should always be constituted from the gluing together of many separate songs into one. (Lord, what a precedent Peter Gabriel GENESIS created with "Supper's Ready"!) As always with Stéphane albums, there are great sections, great instrumental performances, cogent and relative lyrics, yet I have trouble liking any one song start to finish. The best song he's ever produced (and the only one that remains on constant rotation among my playlists) is the amazing title song from 2006's "Shimmering Lights."

3.5 Stars based upon the strength of "The End," "Find Your Sun," and "Be Free" and 12-string guitars. You be your own judge.

4 stars Canadian band THE D PROJECT have been around since 2006, and was formed by Stephane Desbiens just prior to his former band Sense appeared to call it quits. Five studio albums have appeared since then, and the most recent of these appeared in 2018. The album is called "Find Your Sun" and was released via Ozeta Productions.

The D Project as of 2018 comes across as a creative and innovative band. The music on "Find Your Sun" contains enough details, changes and alterations to feel fresh and new for an extended period of listening time. The core audience for such an album would most likely be those with a special interest in bands that have an eclectic approach to progressive rock, and who don't mind that subgenres as neo progressive rock and progressive metal are among the elements used in a rather well flavored stew.

4 stars "FIND YOUR SUN" is the 5th CD released with hard rock, jazzy, classical accents on a timeless PROG base. 8 tracks for 3/4 hour of music, quite short... let's "The end" as an entry with a melting pot sound of great beauty, we have everything, from the gripping intro with the soft voice to the ...

5 stars For this new album D Project asked for the help of Glass Hammer's Fred Schendel on keyboard, Romain Thorel of Lazuli and Peter Falconer of Driftting Sun on vocal. Also Andy Jackson the sound engineer bring that kind of Pink Floyd's sound . As on the previous releases, we hear a lot of influences ... (read more)
