5 stars SINGLE CELLED ORGANISM is the project of multi-instrumentalist, producer Jens LUECK (SYRINX CALL) composing in the progressive universe ranging from ABBA, Pat METHENY, APP, ELOY, SUPERTRAMP, in particular the progressive rock / art-rock scene of the 70s like PINK FLOYD, GENESIS see CAMEL; in short, the world of dinos with an updated theme.

"She's Awake" prevailing atmosphere with introduction to the piano and her soft, crescendo female voice; tablecloths of synths, organ, drums and vocals then the electric guitar for a melodic prog. Delicate, floydian and light "The Final Door" with a folk feel. The melodic line is one of the best of the album with a delightful SYLVAN'S solo; the keyboards also take on GENESIS for a title all in subtlety. "Id Like To See" continues with a voice and a Floydian guitar on ethereal keyboards. A throbbing rhythm, invigorating Jens singing, a Harvestian atmosphere mixing synths-piano and guitars. "Ride On A Ray" for classic and modern prog-rock combining the rhythm and the sweetness of the ballad with the heavy atmosphere. "Doubts" continues on a more nervous and electric rhythm.

"Save Me From Dreaming" follows, Isgaard muffled with his voice and breaks associating strength and melody, a bit la AYREON. "I'm Not Human" always Isgaard singing, a sensitive ballad at the start, the gradual flight merges with a nervous and sustained rhythm, BASTIAN PER in a musical echo. "HeyYou" gives a great musical variety, softness at the start, synth-vocals rise for a progressive melody with a powerful chorus. "Humble" musical interlude, Isgaard's fairy voice, overwhelming and hypnotizing melody. "Entanglement Runs" epic nine-minute track; mounted with tablecloths synths then the instruments are stalled with the voice for the typical chorus; variation and progression make it an evolving centerpiece; final in two stages as if to better establish the time that has stopped. "In hale The Dark" intimate final with piano and vocal duo Isgaard and Jens; an emotional ballad a la 'The Wall'.

Jens released an album that baffles, a progressive Teutonic melodic sweetness. Singular titles whose musical background makes them follow one another like a concept album. Songs that do not lose you in long meanders as one could from time to time, a SINGLE CELLED ORGANISM which delights me after the release of the last SYRINX CALL at the beginning of the year.
