4 stars This is an intriguing album by Stephane Desbien's D Project. While primarily rooted in modern symphonic prog, like Spock's Beard or The Flower Kings, there are very strong references to Pink Floyd (and Roger Waters' solo albums). I also get wisps of Genesis, and even some Supertramp.

Closer To My Soul / Closer To Heaven begins with Floydish keyboards with a Gilmour-toned guitar, and stays there until the song builds up to more technical prog, and some truly excellent playing.

The Supertramp sound comes in with The Red Mountain, which sounds like a classic Rick Davies piece.

More Floyd influence can be heard on the final two track, where Desbien begins to sound like Waters' on vocals.

Despite the obvious influences, this is a unique and original band, that deserves much more notice from the prog world.

Evolver | 4/5 |
