4 stars "FIND YOUR SUN" is the 5th CD released with hard rock, jazzy, classical accents on a timeless PROG base.

8 tracks for 3/4 hour of music, quite short... let's "The end" as an entry with a melting pot sound of great beauty, we have everything, from the gripping intro with the soft voice to the guitar sequences, violent violin, flute and guitar with a good riff at the end; It's off to a good start! "Crude reality" strange with a slightly aggressive voice and chorus, a very heavy bass then a sound in the vein of a KING CRIMSON from the "Red" era with a breathtaking sax. The jewel of the album in my opinion is to come with two captivating consecutive titles with "Tell Me" melancholic synth intro, Parsons-Nian sound (yes, I like to invent to try to capture the sound impression!) then floydienne and crimson-nienne to finish with a violin solo to make you pale. "The Sting" follows, taking a yes-sien detour from the opening of the following title with acoustic guitar, still dark atmosphere, we approach the atmospheres of "The wall" at this precise moment, then lightening with a horn coming from beyond the grave (thank you Romain!)!

"Life to spare" the pop-FM title with a frantic rhythm, a bass still omnipresent, then synth sounds flirting with N.MORSE or TRANSATLANTIC to slowly fall back. "Be kind" the ballad of the album sung here by Peter FALCONER (Drifting Sun) with an acoustic guitar gradually rising towards an explosive electric opening, a riff that H. HADJI (for my Quebecois friends Hassan is the guitarist of the group ANGE! ) would affection with power and emotion (at 3'20'' to be precise!!), then return to the chorus and the symphonic violins, here again a little APP for me, in short the 2nd slap of the album! "Find your sun" follows, broken down into three parts, with clear piano and intro synth for a typically prog extension with T. LEVIN-style bass firmly in place, a voice that becomes almost violent, the riff of the voice combined to that of the guitar, then suddenly the CRICHTON-style solo, then the violin which tempers the high notes and which will seek out sounds flirting with spleen, then again the guitar and the voice in a hard register, always confusing, not the time to finally get bored! It is at this moment that we can realize the convolutions that S. DESBIENS brings to his songs by passing from one musical tune to another, from one musical state to another. The last song "Be free" with a soft, simple acoustic intro will allow us to bring a DESBIENS-style guitar solo, a twirling solo it is, the voice then resuming on the same register, it's beautiful, energetic, it's is mostly a clean sound.
