3 stars Debut album from Spleen Arcana, a one-man project by French Julien Gaullier, is a good one, but it lacks a certain unity.

All in all The Field Where She Died (2008) is an album that shows great skills of Julien as he managed to composed, play, record and produce everything by himself (with exception of the drums). The problem here is that he often sounds too much as his influences like Porcupine Tree, Opeth and 70's bands like Pink Floyd. In general the sound is very good and his compositions are strong, but he often miss the point with some instrumentation parts.

It was a great starting point but that don't show Julien's strenghts and we can see it clearly listening to his new album The Light Beyond The Shadows.
