The Cosmic Remedy biography
THE COSMIC REMEDY formed in 2012, when Bogáti-Bokor ÁKOS was taking a break from his band, YESTERDAYS, and took some time to revisit some unfinished demos he had collected. To complete the group, he enlisted Finnish drummer Kimmo PORSTI (THE SAMURAI OF PROG, PAIDARION, MIST SEASON), and searched the Internet to find bassist Francesco FAIULO and singer Tico DE MORALES.

In 2013, using the Internet again to record their tracks separately, and enlisting a number of guest musicians, they completed their first, self-titled album. Their music evokes the sophisticated pop stylings of THE BEATLES, as well as the more progressive influences of YES, GENESIS, EMERSON LAKE & PALMER, and QUEEN.

Review by StDavis

4 stars THE COSMIC REMEDY is a great project with members from THE SAMURAI OF PROG, YESTERDAYS, YACOBS and TABULA SMARAGDINA. Somehow, the fact that the members haven't met yet in person, it makes the whole thing very interesting to me. According to their website, everything had been recorded at home in Finland, Romania, Germany, Hungary, Italy and Brazil. But there must be something important in common to tie the album and the musicians together: the love of THE BEATLES and early progressive rock. This album has all the sweet melodies and song structures from the sixties, well written multiple vocal harmonies, both male and female voices and this makes this album very colorful. All the songs were written with good taste. The first part of the record feels like symphonic prog to me, YES and GENESIS comes to mind. The second part is much more like THE BEATLES but there's vintage stuff like SERGIO MENDES and THE BYRDS too (even a little bit of jazz too maybe). The third Suite is the female part of the album, RENAISSANCE and Hungarian band YOU AND I comes to mind, but I feel a strong SUPERTRAMP and YES influence here. You may find that structurally this has nothing to do with progressive rock, but there are nice MOOG sounds and MELLOTRON passages, FLUTE and instrumental tricks that make these songs very enjoyable for fans of melodic progressive rock music. The last part of the album shows THE BEATLES influence again (ABBEY ROAD era). All in all this album has much to offer to those who like the bands mentioned above. No long solos, no big epics here, but nicely crafted intelligent songs, beautiful lyrics (all in English) and amazing clear sound. Someone mentioned before that this album sounds very good, very dynamic. I agree, and I'd say that it may be intentional, their website shows that the dynamic sound is very important to these guys. A refreshing but vintage sounding debut from THE COSMIC REMEDY. I am looking forward to hear more about this project in the future, but with a better looking CD cover.... Four and a half stars.

4 stars Audiophile as I am I think it is worth mentioning that this album sounds simply amazing. Got THE COSMIC REMEDY debut CD as a gift from a sound engineer who is interested in mixing and mastering in a very dynamic way. It may seem a bit quiet at the beginning, but rememeber: the volume knob is in your hands, turn it up and that is when the magic happens: this CD sounds very dynamic and clear. Fourteen songs in a very colorful variety in style: pop, powerpop, symphonic progressive rock. When talking about infulences, I think the strongest is their hommage to THE BEATLES and GENESIS, and not only in the heavy use of vintage (-sounding) instruments like MELLOTRON, MOOG and authentic vintage guitars, but it is very clear that the mixing and the mastering has been done in similar ways, preserving all the extra space you need in retro/vintage music compositions. Great songwriting skills and four fine lead voices. There are songs that aren't progressive at all, but thanks to the presence of wurlitzer piano (SUPERTRAMP influence!) or MELLOTRON, eveything falls into place. I think more progressive rock albums should sound like this one, and this one goes for pop albums too. I am looking forward to THE COSMIC REMEDY's future releases. Highly recommended to audiophile music fans!

Review by Ovidiu

4 stars This a very nice and enjoyable album,which proves that prog music still has many beautiful days ahead!THE COSMIC REMEDY is what we can call a multinational band,and shows the fact that music is an international,universal language!If we must find a category for this album,I would like to call it vintage prog rock with some folk and world music touches!The most remarcable fact about this debut album is the impressively mature song writing!Definitelly,AKOS BOGATI BOKOR is a great composer and knows perfectly well how to build a strong structure of a song!The vocal parts are impressive and fit perfectly well with the music-Tico is trully a revelation!!The girl voice reminds me about TORI AMOS a little,but the overall and general impression is that THE COSMIC REMEDY is a proud follower to giant prog giants like GENESIS,GENTLE GIANT and even the pop icons THE BEATLES!Yes,and this superbe vintage prog perfume is what makes this album so enjyable and easily to be digged!It's music that comes from the soul,without any other intention-only to please the listener and to bring him into another dimension!The musicians on the album are excellent-a special note for the very diverse and catchy drumming work provided by Kimmo Porsty from THE SAMURAI OF PROG ,among other projects-and the tasty and clean flute interventions played by Gabor -wonderful indeed!Musically speaking,the album is structured into 4 different chapters,quite different one to the other-there's definitelly a diversity and a strong musical identity of each composition!Midtempo songs,sometimes a jazzy vibe and the feeling of listening something well done and beautiful!Strong 4 stars for an impressive album,great crystal clear production too and a quite weak cover unfortunatelly-that's the only minor minus of this superbe album!

Review by Katusnya

4 stars I have this album for some weeks now and it surprises me every time. When we are talking about THE BEATLES' influence in a sentence that mentions GENESIS and SUPERTRAMP or YES than this music has not only progressive roots, but pop music too. It balances between vintage pop, powerpop and symphonic prog. And when we are talking about pop music, it has that vintage quality to it like in the sixties or in the seventies. The first part of the disk has the most progressive side, GENESIS and YES comes to mind. The first suite has the voice of ULF YACOBS who has a vocal tone very close to PETER GABRIEL. The second suite is a deep dive into sixties vibes, not only with the BEATLES influences, but the heavy use of mellotron, vintage pianos, Minimoog sounds like JEAN-JAQUES PERRAIS in his early Moog craziness. The third suite called "Lost Marbles Suite" is a collection of catchy songs, sung by three female singers, VERA KLIMA is a pop singer from Germany, and she shines like ANNIE HASLAM. Daylight Dreaming is probably my favorite track from this record. But the mood is not this upright during this suite. Blue Sea and Song Without a Home are both melancholic songs filled with mellotrons and vintage multiple backing vocals extravaganza, thanks to ÁKOS BOGÁTI-BOKOR. The last suite is closer to the sixties in style. The intro is something like THE BEACH BOYS would sing with only one acoustic guitar and a bass + 4-6 part harmonies from the BRIAN WILSON's early works. Train to Nowhere starts off like a ROLLING STONES song, climaxes like a KING CRIMSON tune and finishes as THE BEATLES, while the last track, Hiding from the Sun calms things down at the end with catchy melodies, slide guitar solo, multiple vocal harmonies, mellotrons and distorted bass at the end. The album's last guitar solo is tricky, it plays in reverse, ROBERT FRIPP and ADRIAN BELEW are using this technique very often. All in all this album is not for die-hard progrock fans, but for those who are into the sixties both in sound and music. I'd call this light prog and indeed it is very enjoyable album. Four stars from me.

Review by Stargirl79

4 stars A very pleasant surprise, a new international project got together thanks to the internet and a new album has born under the name of The Cosmic Remedy. Even the name suggests that we have to deal with vintage instrumentation. The love of The Beatles is obvious, but there are heavy Genesis, Yes and Supertramp influences too.

It is wort mentioning that the members couldn't meet yet, since the lead singer is from Brazil, the guitarist is Hungarian, the drummer is from Finland, the bass player from Italy and there are lots of special guests, members from The Samurai Of Prog, Argos, Yesterdays, Yacobs, Tabula Smaragdina and Klima.

The album has 14 songs gathered into 4 big suites.

The album starts with a dynamic symphonic prog instrumental Overture. Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman comes to mind, clear Yes influences. The next track, Blue Skies is more like Genesis, thanks to Ulf Yacobs' Gabriel-like voice. Acoustic guitars, moogs, Zappaesque electric solo guitar passages, heavy flute and mellotrons all over.

The second suite is very sixties-like both in structure and instrumentation. It starts off with a pretty instrumental with harpsichord and flute. Susie and Me must be a hommage to The Beatles, Tico de Moraes (BR) sounds just like the young Paul McCartney and this helps the next two songs to sound more like the Fab Four. My personal favorite is I'll Be Your Friend, it has everything: nice acoustic guitars, Wurlitzer piano, bells, amazing backing vocals and a string quartet too.

The Lost Marbles Suite is the "girly" suite, featuring three women. Vera Klima comes from Germany and Daylight Dreaming starts with her amazing shiny vocals. It reminded me of Renaissance and the Hungarian band You And I too. Story of a Prince is more like a pop song and the lead singer this time is Iulia Pardau from Romania (lead singer of a Led Zeppelin tribute band). Her voice reminds me of Sia Furler. Strong pop material here. The next song Blue Sea is simply a prog gem, like Wondrous Stories (by Yes). Acoustic guitar intro, mellotron strings and a fine crescendo till the only one chorus of the song where a Moog Taurus steps in with more mellotrons and rich backing vocals. Breathe-taking! Song Without a Home continues this melancholic mood, but it is more calming, giving a nice ending to the female block.

The last Suite is again very Beatlesque. The Pepperland Lounge celarly shows this and also, the acoustic guitar solo quotes Eleonor Rigby too. Train To Nowhere is more like a dark pop song, where the bridge part reminded me to Tim Christensen's work. Hiding From The Sun is the last piece on the album, it builds up slowly and melodically, guitarist Ákos Bogåti-Bokor (Yesterdays) plays a nice George Harrison-like slide solo in the middle and a psichedelic reversed guitar solo ends the album.

The editors of PA decided to list TCR as Crossover Prog, it was a good decision, this album has many things to offer to open minded vintage prog lovers, who appreciate not only the symphonic prog side, but the melodic, harmonic pop structures played by amazing musicians on vintage instruments. The instrumentation brings back memories... A nice album to enjoy in your car, easy prog listening. Highly Recommended!

Four solid stars. Very enjoyable album!
