Review by Warthur
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Book of Horizons is an important album in the Secret Chiefs 3 discography because it was the first one to overtly set out the idea of the "satellite bands" - the concept that Secret Chiefs 3 was actually a collective of bands who happen to all be led by Trey Spruance, and that explains the very different musical styles involved. Whether that was really the concept from the start or something Trey cooked up on the spot is another question, but either way Book of Horizons is another dazzlingly diverse album from this avant-garde powerhouse running the full range from rock reinterpretations of traditional Middle Eastern music to pounding death metal to progressive passages reminiscent of Goblin's classic horror soundtracks.

5 stars Welllllllllllllll

This is, essentially, my absolute most favorite SC3 album- and that's saying something. SC3, for those who don't know, are project of weirdo/bearded Californian genius Trey Spruance. They have a bizarre combination of oriental music and instrumentation, with electronica, surf rock, death metal, and anything else really.

This album here, "Book Of Horizons", in my opinion, really has Secret Chiefs 3 taking a bit from here and a bit from there, and meshing it in ultimate way. No album, can produce beautiful, epic compositions like "The Exile", and at the same time, have two of the greatest death metal songs I have ever heard, particularly with "Hypostasis of the Archons". The band don't only display variety, but also near-perfect song-writing. Additionally, no album does ambient and thick instrumental compositions like SC3 did on this album.

So yeah. Best album of the 21st century and one of the greatest ever? Hmmm. Yeah pretty much.

This is the first album Spruance has done with the idea of the "satellite bands"- seven different bands all under one banner. All different and interesting- yet strongly unified by Spruance's unforgettable songwriting. This man is such a genius it makes me pissy. The dude just knows how to write tunes! Strange tunes, beautiful tunes, epic tunes, dissonant tunes, he can just do it, and he has the right musicians to do it. Guys like Ches Smith (drummer awesome), and Eyvind Kang (one of my favorite composers), along with a million billion absolutely brilliant musicians who pretty much play every note as right as humanly possible. I honestly wouldn't change a thing about the musicians- they just deliver the tunes the way they should be.

May I just add, again, that "Hypostasis of the Archons", is the greatest metal song I've heard in my life. Jumping over from manic guitars and screams and godly drums over and over and over. I just want to nuke Antarctica when I listen to this cutie pie.

I'm sorry, not much more to add. Listen to this album.

All hail SC3

5 stars This album is AMAZING! I have a hard time wrapping my head around how SC3 manage too cram so many diverse musical genre mish mashes together, and still sound cohesive. And then manage throughout this genre craziness, maintain Indian flavor to all of those genres.

Now, lets see, theres grandoise orchestral pieces, which turn into something that sounds like it came from a wild wild west movie where theres about to be a quickdraw, then theres death metal and grindcore parts, indian tinged surf songs, with orchestral backings, one part where it sounds like it came from the sixth Star Wars movie, during the Endor scenes, parts where your walking through a haunted house or watcing someone get abducted by a UFO, Indian belly dancing music, Black Sabbath style riffing moments, hard rock with electric sitars, and on and on. It's really quite impossible to describe this insane grab bag of musical styles, which are always pulled off with a flair that other genre mashing bands can't seem to pull off.

SC3 really know how to put on a good show, with high quality muscianship, and amazing understanding of musical styles. An album that should be in every Prog fans collection.

5 stars Only 44 ratings and 8 reviews??? The book of Horizons by Secret Chiefs 3 is a great example of a forgotten album in PROGARCHIVES!

5 stars True masterpiece. I had shivering while listening this album for a first time. It's extremaly eclectic and complex. SC3 shows how open-ended is a prog genre. The band put surf rock, movie music, extreme metal and techno in one album but it's still coherent. Sometime it is bueautyful (Gold's Exodu ... (read more)

4 stars A polarized album.

5 stars I will be the first to say that I don't feel this is a progressive album in the sense of the actualy sound. Secret Chiefs 3 doesn't sound like Yes, Marillion, or Dream Theater; however, Trey Spruance's music does progress as you listen to it. So in that sense, this is indeed, a progressive albu ...
