4 stars 3 years after the "Big Face" album, the band fronted by Stephane Desbiens is back with another list of musicians including Sean Filkins (guitar), Claude Leonetti that plays this unique instrument; the Leode, a combination of guitar and synth. The Nemo's keyboardist Guillaume Fontaine plays some keyboards, Isabelle Cormier (violin) and the Jazz musician Giovanni Ortega plays a lot of saxophone throughout this album. The album name "Making Sense" is a concept that turns back to his former band Sense and he decided to bring back the song "Out of Range"/"Out of Line" from those days. From the first song "Rear-View Mirror" that shows a King Crimson influence with his dark sound and heavy guitars to the next one "Making Sense" that display his usual Pink Floyd influence, Desbiens and his band show his love for different style of music of the past in the progressive world. There are also some Jazz sections with a lot of saxophone and an exotic song "Spanish Castle" were Desbiens show his talent on guitars. In fact, the guitars have always been the dominant instrument on D-Project, acoustic or electric, the keyboards are in the background, but have their moments at times. Some songs have many breaks and unusual structures even an avant-garde passage in the song "Nothing Here is Innocent". All this has been directed by the recording engineer Andy Jackson of Pink Floyd. So you get the idea of the quality of that album that could be the best album of the band right now.
