4 stars To sumarise this album in one word: captivating

Silver Lining is the project of Thierry Sportouche ex Anoxie, the editor and critic of magazin Acid Dragon, formed in 1998. The release so far a single album in 2004 through Musea records and is a winner in every aspect. Symphonic prog is the main musical style to be found here, but aswell combined with some spare passages of folk and even celtic momements. I have this album for a couple of years now and every time I"m siting down and heare it is a total delightful journey. For me two piece stands as simply killer, Opaline with some magnificent violin parts and guitar aswell, realy fantstic piece, I reraly like the epic fell of the piece, and The Morning Dew again tot notch, the rest are in same manner, elegant full of intristing arrangements. Instrumental passages are sheer briliancy, the violin has a very proeminent role here, for that reason insome places remind me of Kansas, only vague but similarities are. Pieces like Inner dragon or Opaline makes to feel proud that bands with such talent exists and keeps the flag high in prog world. The album as far as I understand is a concept developed by Thierry Sportouche himself with spoken words section and all the ingredients an album must have in this case. So, a highly recommended album with captivating moments that makes a real enjoyble album from start to finish, The inner dragon makes proud the prog rock genre and must be praised as much as possible because desearve it. 4 stars easy, one of the most pleasent albums I've heared in lat years.
