4 stars Narcissus goes to the moon from 1996 is their best album to me, here almost all went perfect from the voice, intelligent instrumental passages and solid sound.. The influences now are less evident as before , the band sounding really tight and original. I was really impressed by the great amount of keybords here, and how Stephen Geysens manage to come with so many diffrent layers and ides with this instrument, really great. The guitar sound solid then ever before and is perfect examples every pieces of the album. Opening with a short but effective instrumental tune A Succulent Anachronic Pastiche whwre the syths sound very solid, nice runs up and doun on the instrument, great opener, Fuzzy concept is another highlight here with great flute and guitar parts. Intravenous, not the intro with same name , but the real piece clocking around 11 min is a marvelous neo prog tune, much more elastic in arrangements then on many neo prog bands, where the instrumental sections are simply said killer, the keyboards and guitar are amazing and how eneters nicely in the atmosphere. The ending track clocking around 21 min is a tour de force, Visible Wind here shines in the best way possible, all the great ideas they gathered across the years is present here. Nice moods, twists from more mellow parts to more uptempo, here the band is in the best form ever. excellent track. So to me their best album for sure and one of the most unnoticed nep prog albums from the '90's and better then many well nown albums of that period. 4 stars easy and recommended, funny cover art front and back.
