4 stars New Mysteries are going on. Well, what about longing for the dawn now, just to bring some light into the darkness? This album respectively project sees two musicians responsible in the first front, speaking of Daniel Biro (keyboards, programming) and BB Davis (drums, flute). They are not new to the scene, fourteen years ago MYSTERIES OF THE REVOLUTION already could release their critically acclaimed eponymous debut album. Also aboard at that time has been Mark Smith with his bass guitar, but unfortunately he died some time ago. Hence, supported by some additional musicians, you might say that this is also full of longing in reminiscence to him. Nine new songs are offered. They really turn me on, jazz fusion infected stuff featuring a proper spacey respectively ambient component.

As one would expect from a modern contemporary production a lot of electronics are available too here. Also, when listening, you may immediately emphasize the fantastic guitar work that is present throughout, this all provided by Italian born Vincenzo Lamagna. The album initiates with some Pink Floyd feeling, but soon a Tony Williams Lifetime incarnation or so will take the lead. Very nice start! Then the charming downbeat lounge tinged One Whisper follows. Actually, not a surprise really, the title track definitely delivers some grief, sadness. An irresistible beat, upright bass, mysterious voices, and swirling flutes are making Babylon Everything to something special. Finally the groovy extended Pharoah's Scribbled Phantasms puts the cherry on the cake. Headed by Daniel Biro's free-spirited Herbie Hancock inspired keyboards this production is a real listening pleasure.
