4 stars From the beginning, I admit I knew almost nothing about Eddie Jobson, until I put my hands on this disc. Then, after some auditions, the music caught me very well. And I was very glad adding this album to my personal musical collection. The reasons are many, but in a few words I'd like to say that Theme of secrets is another atmospheric journey to the unknown. I was asking myself if Eddie Jobson did in fact play to various electronic instruments, or it was only one. If he had played to only one instrument (i.e. synclavier), he must have been a true master of this one. Generally speaking, the songs are very peaceful and enigmatic in the same time. From strange electronic sounds (Spheres of Influence) to splendid keyboards themes and harmonies(Inner Secrets, Memories of Vienna, Lakemist) and a brilliant intro (The Sojourn), the album reveals the word of SECRET. There's an inner, a theme and an outer secret and the music seems to be, indeed, full of secrets. However, the music from this album is not at all something very high and special in the field of progressive electronic music. It's simply enjoyable...That's why I won't rate this album on 10.I must say, I use to listen to this album on evenings before going to bed, and it's very relaxing to meditate on it.

Sachis | 4/5 |
