4 stars 4,5 stars really !!! I quote BRIGHTEYE BRISON like one of the best and more originals bands which emerges in progressive rock scenery in 21st Century. Best because they are fantastic musicians and originals due to produce a excellent music in terms of arrangements including in their themes, a good dose of "filigrees"... ( as expected by a good prog artist) but, producing a sound very accessible even to non-prog fans ( how already said SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator apps79 in their review#193937, Posted Tuesday, December 16, 2008) and I make the same advice - in spite be "more accessible" isn't a pop music using prog elements !!! The album join together intricate vocals parts like in track 2 "Patterns" with a "nasal-choir" starting 1 min 08 sec in duet with electric guitar melody and again starting at 3 min 19 sec when appear a intermission with acoustic-piano/vocal/electric guitar ( this last seems to me very close to Steve Howe's use of Danelectro Coral Sitar guitar but, I'm not sure). In track 3 "Isolation" in a brief passage the electric guitar shows the same timbre as in the previous track , but the highlights comes by the keyboards variety types ( including hammond-organ, acoustic-piano, synthesizers etc... ) . The track 4 "The Battle of Brighteye Brison" mix symphonic/heavy prog (one of better moments in the album ). The track 6 "Late" is a almost dancing theme with remarkable guitar solo and hypnotic acoustic-piano ( other great moment ). In track 8 "All love" brings a nylon-guitar accompaniment with sax and trumpet parts ! In resume this album is very close to a masterpiece and my rate is 4 stars with a great applause !!!
