Solar Project picture
Solar Project biography
The music has a small amount of neo mixed with some elements of symphonic and melodic. The result is nice vocals (male, female and choir) melodic prog style and heavy rhythms. "World Games" and "The House Of S. Phrenia" albums are marked by PINK FLOYD's influence. SOLAR PROJECT successfully adds a new facet to Nineties neo progressive. GREAT PRODUCTION AND GREAT MELODIES!

Review by gesse

5 stars I'll give 4,71 stars the beginning of the album didn't please me at all, But when I was going to turn the cd off the music started to get better and better (after 4 minutes of the 1st track), and I just loved the album

1. Time Part I (7:34) The beginning is quite borring, the bass sound too much elctronic, but at the 4:00 the hammond comes and makes the rest of the music very good

(3/5)

2. About time (4:43) The acoustic/electric guitar intro is just amazing, and I liked a lot of the people talking, very good track and a philosofical reflexion about what is time (5/5)

3. Crime Time (5:55) Perfect lyrics, awesome acoustic guitar intro, cool variations, a really remarkable music (5/5)

4. Time Out (7:12) Excelent music and lyrics (5/5)

5. Zeitgeist (6:01) Man, it reminds me focus and deep purple, with a kind of elp organ parts. It's not sooo prog, but is excelent, anyway (5/5)

6. to 11. Time To Die (27:08) I think it's better to listen to that, it's an excelent epic track wich deserves 5 stars (5/5)

12. Time Part II (8:15) Good ending for the album, finishing the idea of the first track, 5 stars too (5/5)

Review by erik neuteboom

3 stars This is a German band , their debut CD The Final Solution was released in 1989 so you can conclude that Solar Project is making prog for almost twenty years!

This new CD (their sixth studio album) contains 7 compostions that sound simply structured but very tasteful coloured by guitar and especially keyboards, the Hammond organ work often evokes Manfred Wieczorke his work in early Eloy. The guitarplay has obvious hints of David Gilmour, especially in the opener Gray (also delicate saxophone solo and omnipresent organ sound) and Black (alternating with very compelling organ work). My highlight is the long track Green (more than 15 minutes) featuring lots of shifting moods and very pleasant work on guitar (from heavy riffs and sensitive play to a captivating psychedelic solo and a fine duet with the organ) and kebyoards (from soaring synthesizers and compelling Hammond sounds to frequent eruptions on the choir-Mellotron. Halfway the climate turns into psychedelic like Pink Floyd At Pompeii. The final part delivers fat guitar riffs and fiery guitar runs. The vocals are often duo, a combination of male and female, it sound pleasant but the lyrics are very simple. At some moments the music reminds me of the first Epidaurus album, also from Germany but rooted in the Seventies.

This is not music with refinement, tension, inventive ideas or awesome skills but if you like early Eloy or more psychedelic pInk Floyd, this is a CD to discover.

Review by Greger
Prog Reviewer

3 stars SOLAR PROJECT is a German Symphonic Rock band, which was formed in 1988 out of the ashes from a band called SOLAR SYSTEM. Their first album "The Final Solution" was released in 1990 and since then they have recorded three more albums and "Five" is, like the name says, their fifth album. This is the first album I have heard from the band. "Five" is a complex concept album about the four elements and the fifth one. The music is very 70's and 80's sounding with some reminiscences to DJAM KARET and PINK FLOYD. There's a lot of variation, from slowly progressing, dreamy psychedelic, to powerful complex progressive outbursts. I get a somewhat shattered impression, maybe because of the many different musicians and vocalists who contribute to this album. Some of the keyboard sounds feels a little bit dated too. Especially the typical 80's sounding ones! But all in all this is a nice album with many exciting moments.
