3 stars From Lokeren, Belgium, comes this interesting Space Rock band, started in 2002 as an offshoot project of three members from Ghiribizzi, ending up being the main vehicle of the two of them, more specifically keyboardist Pete Mush and guitarist Dario Frodo.The third member was drummer Gino Bartolini, while the line-up included also bassist Jaro and flutist Charles Sla.Actually the name of the band was the result of a type error of ''Quantum Fantasy''.The first album of Quantum Fantay ''Agapanthusterra'' was recorded between 2004 and 2005 at Pete Mush'es studio (called the Mushroomland) and released as a private work in 2005.

Many compare Quantum Fantay to OZRIC TENTACLES, which is partly true, but the sound of the Belgians seems to go through plenty of variations, always under a Space Rock concept.The main force of this all instrumental debut are Pete Mush'es spacey and cosmic synthesizers, not surprisingly he is also the composer of all the music in here.His work passes from sharp, intense and cosmic synths to extreme Electronic soundscapes, producing sonic textures of another world.He is accompanied by a great supporting group, which has its own room to develop the sound.From the groovy and heavy guitar rhythms of Frodo to the beautiful, psych-flavored flute drives of Sla, the spacey atmosphere of Mush obtains another dimension, trully attractive and imaginery.The rhythm section is very consistent with a pretty pounding performance all the way and the sound of the group is certainly among the most original of the scene.''Agapanthusterra'' contains among others lots of impressive and powerful rhythmic parts to satisfy listeners even outside the genre.

Personal mix of Psychedlic Rock, Space Rock, Prog Rock and Electronic Music in a promising package.Strongly recommended to all lovers of cosmic soundscapes and powerful musicianship...3.5 stars.
