4 stars When music is this good all you can do is say wow ! Right from the opening bars this album really takes the listener into another world... in fact slightly resembling for me a film score. This 2 CD dual concept album plays out two different stories with side one creating a 75+ mins musical score intended to accompany philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre's novel "nausea" . The second CD is an 18 min epic prog-suite aply titled "Welcome To My Rock N Roll" based on a symphony by French composer Louis Vierne. German prog fans might be interested to note that 2 of the members of this band were once ex members of TRESPASS. Although accompanied by narration, it is clearly in their instrumental work that shines thru with some fantastic keyboard, drum , bass and guitar interplay. Musically these guys are amazing and blend 70's progressive rock sensitivities (aka GENESIS and ELP) with a modern complex yet interwoven and tight fusion vibes (TUNNELS, BRAND X, ARENA) Also key to note that this album is exceptionally well recorded and sounds nice and lively over the ol' speakers.
