4 stars Canadian superb trio,who's history dates back in 1993 when they were found by multi-instrumentalist Donald Fleurent.After a couple of demo tapes TALISMA broke up to be re-formed at the dawn of the millenium.They were signed by Unicorn Records and released their official debut ''Corpus'' in art rock album of high-quality heading straight to demanding listeners.Many and varied are the influences of the band.From KING CRIMSON-like complex guitar work and atmosphere to classical keyboard interludes,from the professional ethnic instrumental parts to cosmic soundtrack-like passages (DJAM KARET come to mind),from heavy fusion-esque guitars surrounded by groovy bass lines (reminding of LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT) to ethereal female vocals and jazzy/ethnic orientations.Not a boring minute in here,''Corpus'' is a release for fans of trully sophisticated music with a variety of sounds,styles and instruments.A stunning debut!
