Review by SouthSideoftheSky
4 stars Nobody foresaw this!

Solaris can do nothing wrong, every one of their studio albums are excellent. They are however few and far between, and this album came out of nowhere last year without warning. 20 years after Nostradamus - Book Of Prophecies comes Nostradamus 2.0 - Returnity (Unborn Visions). If you are familiar with the former 1999 album, you will have a pretty good idea of what to find here, and both albums are equally great.

The album holds only four songs, but one of them is over half an hour long. The vocals are (as far as I can tell) sung in Latin, and there are both male and female voices to be heard. The focus does however lie on the instrumental attack of flutes, keyboards, guitars, bass and drums.

Personally, I like the band's two Martian Chronicles albums even more, but I am very happy to see that Solaris are still active and releasing new material in their inimitable style. I am less happy though to see that they are not getting the attention they deserve. If you enjoyed past Solaris releases, this one will not disappoint.

Highly recommended!

5 stars If you already know the masterpiece (yes, masterpiece) Nostradamus Book of Secrets you will find here the same melodies, the same compositional vein, the same listening pleasure. How many times do we find boring prog albums? Here virtuosity is at home, the exaltation passes from song to song, an ... (read more)

5 stars Hungarian prog band Solaris are back with their 5th studio album. What we have here is transcendant musicianship with all instruments working very well with eachother and having their time to shine. Their music is still filled with the beautiful melodies and occasional latin vocals (maybe a bit more ... (read more)
