4 stars "Clearlight Symphony" is one of the finest progressively electronic instrumental albums to emerge from the '70's. The genius of CLEARLIGHT's music rests in the hands of Cyrille Verdeaux who plays Grand Piano, Mellotron, organ and synths galore. "Clearlight Symphony" is one of the richest sounding space patrols you will ever encounter. Verdeaux's cleverly injects classical structures and instrumentation (piano) with fusion-like inspired parts (aka GONG) and occasional psychedelic guitar flare-ups. The sound is rich and full of color and texture with some superb melodies and atmospheres. Verdeaux is helped by well known guests such as Steve Hillage (guitars), Didier Malherbe (sax) and Tim Blake (synths) who add some great depth to the music. "Clearlight Symphony" is essentially 2 long (over mins) movements which both are killer and would make the perfect dinner music piece. An essential recording and thanks to Clearlight Music (See my link section) you too can own a re-mastered copy which puts a whole new spin on this French progressive gem.
