ECLECTIC PROG

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre


From Progarchives.com, the ultimate progressive rock music website

Eclectic Prog definition

The term 'eclectic' in the context of progressive rock describes a summation of elements from various musical sources, and the influences and career paths of bands that take from a wide range of genres or styles. While progressive music can be, in a larger sense, eclectic, the 'Eclectic Prog' term is specially meant to reference bands that trespass the boundaries of established Progressive Rock genres or that blend many influences.

Eclectic Prog combines hybrids of style and diversity of theme, promoting many elements from different sources. The Eclectic category recognizes bands that evolved markedly over their career (in a progressive, evolutionary way), or have a plural style without a clear referential core.

The basic features lie within the music's variety, rich influences, art tendencies and classic prog rock elements. Among the representative bands are KING CRIMSON, VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR, and GENTLE GIANT.

Spices, Species and Poetry Petrol
Jeavestone Eclectic Prog

Review by maryes

4 stars I entirely agree with P A community which gives the best quotation to the second album from the Finish band JEAVESTONE "SPICES, SPECIES AND POETRY PETROL" between his 4 albums. The disk is a really eclectic-prog album and I take the risk of say, which is possibly one of more eclectic albums that I've heard. Track 1 " 'Quela Puente! " sounds to me like a HANDS inspired track.. Track 3 " The Power of Swankle(tm)" brings ZAPPA's strong influences . Track 4 "I'd be your Weakness" is very close to CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG, mainly in the acoustic guitar and vocal parts. Track 6 "Rapist's Tango" in certain moments recall BIRTHCONTROL ... even in vocals and riff parts. Only for cite some tracks. So becomes unnecessary make any considerations about the quality of musicians... All of them enough qualified . My rate is 4 Stars !!!

5 stars In every serious prog collection, there are always a few albums that have achieved 'reverential' status even though that epithet seemed only to be shared by very few, if any. I remember purchasing the vinyl copy of this album in 1977 when it was released in Canada on Warner Brothers, motivated by the cool spectral cover and a line-up of a few talented musicians such as Tai Phong's Jean-Alain Gardet and the legendary Francois Breant on keys and Jean- Jacques Goldman (well before becoming a pop superstar), as well as drummer Emmanuel Lacordaire (Nemo, Breant). Rounded out by Malicorne's Claude Alvarez-Pereyre, Michel Mareska on lead guitar, Charlie Charriras on bass. I loved the album from the very first spin, especially inspired by the opener "Synergie" which I consider a rather unique track of iconic proportions. The remaining, mostly all-instrumental tracks have a naďve preciousness that defies description, yes dated but utterly charming. The entire set-list is very well-balanced and exudes unending inspiration. I have patiently waited for nearly 40 years for a CD version and finally, that day has come, as Paisley Press has dedicated its time and resources to release this on CD.

The affair kicks off with the spectacular "Synergie", an immediate winner built around a zig-zagging fuzzed guitar phrasing that evokes determination and originality, not overtly complex but extremely gratifying. Wistful, syncopated, forceful and resolute, the layered mood exudes a sizzling charm that sets the table for a perfect musical experience. This track has been a perennial fave since the day it was spawned and I have used it many times on various playlists (audio cassettes, remember those?) as introduction.

The three part "Nova" keeps the pace ablaze with some lavish choir work (A Tai Phong trait), followed by some zippy synths and a dynamic rhythmic pulse, furthered by a galloping bass and complex drums, with Breant's exuberant piano work and Mareska shooting off some gritty solos. Then a more country styled finger-picking break (guest Claude Samard) that evolves into a blitzing axe solo, as well as a superb and unique double synth foray on the Arp Odyssey.

The brief "Syrtis Major" reverts to a gentle space lullaby, heavily dependent on the Elka string synthesizer, a rather mythical French instrument that is comparable to the mellotron in original sound. This is of course, a perfect segue into the 'piece de resistance', the aptly titled "Genese", an epic 8 minute plus symphonic ride that owns some serious references to the Genesis model, with delicate string guitar weavings, extroverted percussion patterns, looping bass and primo keyboard work, typically on piano. The highly distorted electric guitar (Samard) certainly hints at the Hackett sound, perhaps in a bluesier vein, so the comparisons to fellow countrymen Pulsar are quite warranted, offering up some lovely and intricate melodies and skilled soloing. The marimba effects are equally applause worthy.

The beautiful melody on "Rez" is sadly too short but the keyboard package is noteworthy, then abruptly exploding into a jazzy jam led by a busy bass rumble, fueled by stinging guitars, honky-tonk piano and surprise: a slithering violin volley that gets taken over by a distorted axe excursion from guest Jean de Antony that just hisses with passion. This is very jazz-fusion, sounding almost like classic JL Ponty (another Frenchman). Wow! "Magellan", named after the first circumnavigator of our planet, is another epic 7 minute slab of symphonic prowess featuring the indomitable style of Francois Breant, both on piano and ARP, providing a more experimental edge. The arrangement is armed with dissonance and intricacy, Charriras curling some nifty patterns on his bass guitar, paralleled by the suave keys and the mighty e-guitar. Shifting between hard and soft passages, this is truly a cinematic adventure that warrants repeated returns, in depth investigations that focus on all the subtleties woven into the piece. The laid-back moments are incredible and the insistent ones surge suddenly, showing again an affinity to Pulsar. Both De Antony and Mareska deliver simply stupendous solos here.

The delicate , very Moerlin-era Gong sound of "Lagune Ouest " is dominated by Alvarez-Pereyre on marimba and violin , firmly encamped in a more folk tradition , not shocking as Malicorne was his previous band. Finally the celestial "Hymn" closes out this fantastic jewel, a rare and unique one-shot wonder that is, IMHO' a must- have in any prog collection, not only for the music contained within, but its precious rarity in being further discovered. The heavenly voices and exalted violin create a sense of magical release that will soothe the soul and elicit the smiles.

This is probably a 4 star recording for most fans but my feelings as well as the seemingly eternal anticipation force me to elevate this to the loftiest heights. Desert island choice for sure.

A Song For Me
Family Eclectic Prog

Review by jamesbaldwin

4 stars Family is a great art rock and pioneeristic prog rock band. I think is the most underrated group here in progarchives and generally in forums of prog fans. The reasons why Family is underrated are: 1 Family's music is full of american roots-rock influences 2 The singer is too much cumbersome 3 The group is guitar-oriented and keyboards are not preminent 4 Family prefers more short art rock songs than suites or long and odd songs. In a word: Family's music is visceral art rock, not cerebral or classical prog rock. Family's music touch your lung. And it touch you in a surprising way, full of strength and intelligence.

Except their last album, Family's discography includes only great album or masterpiece. There are no falls.

Family Song for me is not a masterpiece but a very good album, It's hard rock and folk oriented, with an excellent mix of acoustic and electric guitar, plus violin and flute, and over all there is the Chapman' voice, wonderful, rough, or tender, ore amusing, or angry. Chapman is one of the greater singer in the whole rock history (not only in prog history). In this album Chapman sings without any inibition (in the firsts two album his vocal performancee sometimes are not at their best, if we consider his enormous capability)

The songs.

1 Drowned in wine. Great hard folk song. Electric and acoustic guitar, flute, voice: magic. 8,5 2 Some poor souls. Short acoustic folk song. Delicious. 7,5 3 Love is a sleeper. Great song of classic rock with vibes. 7,5/8 4 Stop for the traffic. Not bad but anonymous rock song. 6,5 5 Wheels. Another great hard folk song. Excellent work of guitarist Whytney. 8+ ---- 6 Song for sinking lovers. This song is more folk and violin oriented than others and in the beginning is lazy but before ending has got the climax in instrumental sequence. 7,5/8 7 and 8 are two closed short songs, the first with vibes, the second of classic rock. This moment is the easier of the album. 7+ 9 Instrumental, and very strange folk song, with optim melody and improvisations. 7+ 10 Song for me. Maybe the longer song of Family. It's a jam of hard rock, maybe too long and repetitive because the songs goes around the same musical chord. But there are good moment of power rock, the song give you power 7,5/8

The production is good, the sound is homogenic, the alternance between empty space, or calm melody, and pieces of hard rock and shouted voice makes a good effect.

Score: 8,5 Four stars and half. Listen to, and re-listen to Family music!

A Shadow Of The Past
Foxtrot Eclectic Prog

Review by maryes

3 stars Taking in consideration the year of release from FOXTROT "A Shadow of the Past" 1984, the majority of progressive rock fans tendentially avoid this album and probably after to hear a few minutes of the track 1 "Here come the nuclear warheads" the rejections must have increased. Because if anyone thought to find a GENESIS remake (:specially of his "golden era" which belongs the album "Foxtrot" ), has a complete deception. The biography of the band in P A is perfect when says "reminiscent of CAMEL circa "Stationary Traveller" than the GENESIS song their name implies" and this is very clear. However, has a moment in whole disk where the sound of FOXTROT approaching of the greatest moments of GENESIS's sonority ; this moment is track 3 "A shadow of the past" a very beautiful piece of music with bass pedals and 12 string-guitar accompaniment, gentle keyboards melody and a lead guitar in Hackett's style, from far the best moment of the audience. But the track 5 "WarHero" and the last track "Monsoon" are also good ones. The worst moments are without trace of doubt : track 2 "Silhouette of the tiger" and track 4 "The Crowd". Only due the three tracks detached by me I give 3 stars !!!

Happy The Man Eclectic Prog

Review by siLLy puPPy
Collaborator PSIKE Team

4 stars The late 70s and 80s may have been the greatest test for progressive bands to weather out the storm with some, mostly neo-prog bands holding out and carrying the torch against hurricane force winds but the 90s saw a calm in the storm with bands like Anglagard and Dream Theater unapologetically reviving the complexities of 70s prog traditions and updating their sounds. The second generation of prog was born! and that coupled with digital technology making it infinitely less expensive to produce music and the popularity of the internet to by-pass record company whims was the perfect recipe for old school bands of the 70s to re- emerge from their slumber. HAPPY THE MAN was one of those bands who emerged just a little late in the game in the 70s to really garner a huge following. Their only two studio albums of the 70s came out in 1977 and 78 just when 'Saturday Night Fever' and the Sex Pistols were crashing the party and changing the musical soundscape. The band was, frankly, lucky to achieved what they did at that period but it is a testament to the outstanding musicianship that the band engaged in and it's no wonder they have kept a cult following after all the years that have passed.

Fast forward to the year of 2004 and HAPPY THE MAN finally, at long last, graces the world with a third full-length studio album. Forget all those demo and archival albums ('3rd - Better Late,' 'Death's Crown,' 'Beginnings') which are fine and dandy for collectors but not what i'd call real albums that you can just get lost in. THE MUSE AWAKENS is the real thing that stylistically fits somewhere between the band's 70s studio releases with an updated sound and production that suits the band sound, oh quite well! THE MUSE AWAKENS features only three original members, those being Stanley Whitaker (guitars and vocals), Frank Wyatt (saxes, keyboards and woodwinds) and Rick Kennell (bass). The newbies are David Rosenthal on keyboards and Joe Bergamini on drums and percussion. HTM had the Spinal Tap complex with all three studio albums having different drummers. As far as i know, there were no bizarre gardening accidents or spontaneous combustible moments! One of the first things i noticed is the use of much more prominent guitar making itself heard above the symphonic touches.

The album pretty much continues where the last two left off. The beginning track 'Contemporary Insanity' humorously lets the listeners know that HTM is quite aware of its current timeline and yet opts to anachronistically take us to that point in time in that imaginary universe where 'Crafty Hands' was a huge success and this was the much anticipated followup release. And yes, the energy, the jazz-fusion meets symphonic prog leanings, the syncopated rhythms and time sigs gone wild are all on board dictating to the world that true 70s prog is back and this is no joke. Is this album really good? Well, yes it is! However, it doesn't take long to prove that this album doesn't have a really good flow pattern to it. Starting with the second track which is the title track we get the first of some really slow 'soft' jazz-fusion tracks that as always bring The Weather Report to mind, however at least this one picks up the energy level after a bit. The track is redeemed by its intensity build-up. The one thing that keeps me from giving this album a higher rating are the smooth jazz moments that are counterproductive to the overall feel of the album.

The band can rock like nobody's business but there is a deliberate holdback as found on the mellower tracks like the title track, 'Maui Sunset,' 'Slipstream,' 'Adrift.' I should emphatically state that mellow doesn't mean boring. Tracks like 'Stepping Through Time' are mellow yet awesomely effective in carrying out a successful progressive rock inspired fusion that blows the mind utilizing all the members on boards to create an addictive atmosphere. Tracks like 'Psychedelicatesson' are magical and i truly wish the album was stuffed with these kinds of tracks and my absolute favorite HTM track of all time 'Barking Spiders' which takes their jazz- fusion approach and REALLY marries the rock really make this album worth the price of admission alone including the most guitar oriented track of the band's existence.

Yes, this sounds like a collection of tracks composed through the track of a couple decades and yes, this doesn't flow as nicely as a 'true' organic album should and yes, this may have more mellow tracks than it should, but i am quite enthralled with not only the diversity of the album but by the compositional skills involved and the fact that a 70s band created a really beautiful album that still resonates into the 21st century. Given all the obstacles placed in their way and the fact that this is not the most perfect album that could ever exist, i'm still very pleased with its achievement. When all is said and done, this album has more than enough to deliver to the hardcore HTM fans who were craving the top notch musical deliveries with a pleasing retro feel and musical repertoire that could transport the listener to the classic days of prog albeit the latter tracings. Perhaps a worked for 4 star appreciative effort but after many listens, one that i have found it to be

Happy The Man Eclectic Prog

Review by siLLy puPPy
Collaborator PSIKE Team

5 stars HAPPY THE MAN had a series of serendipity by impressing an exec at Arista Records and then impressing Peter Gabriel after auditioning for his solo band, who helped them secure a music contract. The band was also fortunate to support their debut album as an opening act for various popular bands such as Foreigner, Renaissance and Hot Tuna, but the live touring thing was too much for drummer Mike Beck and he was replaced by Ron Riddle who was in an early lineup of The Cars and would appear on their second album CRAFTY HANDS. While still quite progressive and in some ways even more challenging than the debut, there are signs that the record company was stifling the creative process and lobbying for more commercial music at points molding the band to take on a Styx type of sound such as on the one and only vocal track 'Wind Up Doll Day Wind.' Well the rhythmic drive has a Styx feel to it in the keyboards. Vocally Whitaker sounds more akin to Colin Goldring of Gnidrolog at times. Even though the band wanted to make this sophomore release all instrumental, the bigwig at Arista demanded that they include at least one vocal track in hopes of increasing marketability and creating a wider mass appeal. The track is the one and only vocal track on here and while they complied to the boss' desires, they still managed to jazz it up enshrouded with sophistication and an 11/8 time signature!

CRAFTY HANDS takes all the elements of symphonic prog and jazz-fusion (and the occasional Gryphon-esque folk sounds such as the flute and oboe on 'Open Book') that appeared on the eponymous debut album and tamed them down a bit. The fact that there are less vocal tracks is a plus for me and for the one that does appear, Stanley Whitaker sounds much more accomplished here. The one aspect that is missing from CRAFTY HANDS that the debut flaunted is the sense of recklessness and bold progressive workouts that would appear suddenly in the midst of the dreamy polyphonic synthesized dreamscapes that the band effortlessly conjured up. This album seems a lot more polished and even-keeled, however don't think for a second that the progressiveness has diminished in any way. These guys still deliver some of the most delicious musical calisthenics that were to be heard in the late 70s. It's just that they are melded together in a more seamless manner and there are no fast tempo Keith Emerson keyboard moments to be found. This one is much more relaxing, much like the most sedated music of Camel and could possibly qualify as elevator prog if such a thing were to exist!

This album is is very impressive. All the compositions are exquisitely done. The musicianship is impeccable and the atmosphere and mood of the entire works show the band named itself well as the music is cheerful and upbeat even when tamed down to dreamland. Perhaps a few listens may be required for these complex rhythms and polyphonic assaults to sink in, but once they do, they find a firm foundation in your soul. Unbeknownst to the band, this was a make or break album and when the album failed to result in even the slightest commercial interest Arista records dropped the band like a hot potato on a restaurant floor and the band was forced to seek out a new label, but in the late 70s, none came to the rescue. HAPPY THE MAN sallied forth determined to continue and recorded material for a third album, but the pressures of a prog fish swimming upstream in the currents of a punk and disco torrent proved to be too much and the band ultimately called it a day. CRAFTY HANDS, and the debut, for that matter gained many fans as time went on for the clever use of polyphony, brilliant integrative musical styles and highly complex musical runs that still managed to remain somewhat catchy and have even been cited as the influence of many bands like Dream Theater and beyond. Personally i love this album as much as the first although i miss the spontaneity and reckless abandon of the debut. CRAFTY HANDS is a more calculated beast that has lost its youthful innocence but gained in sheer sophistication and remains a steadfast cornerstone of American symphonic prog. 4.5 but rounded up. These guys deserve it

Happy The Man Eclectic Prog

Review by siLLy puPPy

4 stars Of all the progressive rock bands from the USA that made the grade in the prog rich decade of the 70s, none were so eclectic and far reaching as HAPPY THE MAN which began its days as far back as 1973 in Harrisonburg, Virgina when guitarist Stanley Whitaker and bassist Rick Kennell met in Germany and once they returned back to the US decided to share their passion for progressive rock and form a band. The band actually took their odd name from a quote from Goethe's "Faust." ("Oh happy the man who can still hope") After several lineups along the way, the band spent some years as a cover band glorifying the bigwigs of the day such as Genesis, King Crimson and Van Der Graaf Generator. On one fortuitous day playing in Washington DC, the band caught the attention of an exec from Arista records who was so impressed that he showed interest in signing the band which was quite surprising considering the year of 1976 was seeing the major decline of prog and more interest building towards punk and arena rock. In that very same year, none other than Peter Gabriel was scouting out musicians for his solo career and although after hearing them play decided their sound wasn't compatible with his, did manage to help secure a contract with Arista for a 5 year multi-album deal but would actually end after only two releases.

HAPPY THE MAN the band released their eponymous debut album in 1977 and as you would might have guessed, failed to make any type of commercial impact at all but did manage to create a unique eclectic symphonic prog meets jazz-fusion type of sound. The album begins innocently enough sounding like something that wouldn't sound out of place on a Weather Report album as the suave jazzy passages slink around like a smooth syncopated caterpillar walk but soon displays the band's tendencies to erupt into serious prog frenzies with keyboards as spastic as Keith Emerson accompanied by extreme musical travails with complex arrangements and instrumental gymnastics. While most tracks on the album are instrumental there are some such as "Upon The Rainbow" that are slowed down and focus on the lyrics. These make me think of what a much more adventurous Steely Dan might sound like if they turned the prog and jazz-fusion up a few notches. I would however say that the vocal parts are my least favorite parts even though they aren't bad or anything. The band just shines so much more brightly when they let loose and erupt into prog outbursts.

This is a symphonic prog lover's dream come true with lush Hammond organs, rhodes pianos, minimoogs and clavinets dishing out dreamy synthesized jazzed up melodies often overlapping and creating complex polyphony accompanied by rocking bass and percussion and frequent slick solos that crank it up and run wild. While guitar is included in both six and twelve string form, it is more subdued and is more than drowned out by the heavy dominance of the symphonic elements swirling around like a wild tornado that can calm to a gentle ocean breeze in the blink of an eye. While the tempo shifts can be abrupt, the music is always allowed to breathe and carry out its intended effect. On the jazz side of things the band includes a sax in various sections and also on board is the use of flute and marimba for the occasional folk and ethnic influences, however for the majority of the album's running time we are simply treated to an all assault on the senses with polyphonic keyboard runs overlapping and creating interesting dynamics. HAPPY THE MAN is one of those band's that reminds you of many others (Genesis, Camel, Weather Report, ELP) but always keeps their sound unique and truly their own. This band is one of my favorites of the 70s to emerge from the US where prog bands were always several steps behind the European scene. Along with Kansas, Zappa, Santana, Yezda Urfa and The Muffins, HAPPY THE MAN were in the upper tier of United Statesian prog.

War and Peace
Pandora Snail Eclectic Prog

Review by Neu!mann
Prog Reviewer

3 stars In this increasingly fragmented digital world we share, it's reassuring to see how the Web has allowed Progressive Rock to rediscover its original grass-roots appeal, with small bands from unlikely corners of the globe now promoting their music over the world-wide aether, often (though not in this case) without even a physical CD to vend. A case in point is Pandora Snail: a (relatively) new group from northwest Russia aggressively marketing its debut album in these Archives: not a bad strategy with music that doesn't sit comfortably in a pre-fab cubbyhole.

Eclectic is the perfect word to describe their style: a relaxed but dynamic blend of instrumental, quasi-symphonic rock combining light fusion ŕ la JEAN-LUC PONTY with moments of heavy guitar machismo and rhythmic GENTLE GIANT counterpoint. Listen closely and you might also detect a strain of native folk music, buried deep within the mix of other influences.

What you won't hear, to their credit, is the sort of self-conscious, retro-'70s artifice that defines so much of what passes for Progressive Rock these days. The band is simply playing what comes naturally to them, and making it sound easier than it actually is.

The group is a true ensemble too, with each member supporting the others and no single instrument hogging the spotlight. The electric violin of Artem Gareev is the obvious focal point, but Kirill Klyushin's nimble bass guitarmanship deserves a shout-out: check out his funky Chris Squire vs. Les Claypool break in 'To Catch the Wind'.

Other Archive reviewers, solicited as I was for an opinion but quicker on the uptake (the album was released over eight months ago, at this belated writing), have already described each track in detail. I would just add that the longest selection ('James Pont', at 16+ minutes) is also the album's weakest link, perhaps as a result of the quintet trying too hard and overreaching its grasp, always a worthwhile risk when attempting music of any real scope.

I applaud their ambition: the long suite gives the band an opportunity to show its collective chops. But the album works better when the band is indulging its natural melodic instincts (in the lovely 'By the Mountain River', and elsewhere), instead of straining toward the virtuoso complexity of RUSH or KING CRIMSON...laudable aims to be sure, but a difficult plateau to reach without a Neil Peart or Bill Bruford setting the tempo.

A nitpicker might, as a constructive criticism, also say the album was arguably too smoothly produced, to a point where even the noisy free-form coda ending 'After the War' sounds over-rehearsed. This is music calling out for a little raw energy, but the arrangements lean more toward the latter half of its Tolstoyan title: constructive peacekeeping over compelling warfare.

Excusable growing pains, maybe, for a debut recording. Otherwise, Pandora Snail (an unfortunate name by the way, possibly improved when rendered in Cyrillic hieroglyphs) is a band worth nurturing.

Review by Saxophone

5 stars The perfect mixture of peace and madness, these guys made it look so easy when they were literally creating a new music genre, or at least, a guide at how to do so, this is not only a cornerstone of our good ol' beloved prog, but also one of the most influential and memorable records ever done, heck, even the album art is burned in the memory of us all, not to mention the first track, that is, (at least for me) the first thing that comes to mind when prog rock is mentioned... In short: What is prog rock? This album is prog rock.

3 stars For anyone who, for reasons known only to them, still truly enjoys Fusion from the peak era ~ the real thing; that stuff that makes your friends force tight smiles and once caused your aunt to nod off after supper but you love dearly for its deft blend of two great forms and superb musicians who tended toward it ~ Visitor 2035's second issue hits the spot. As most fusionheads will tell you, the good stuff is not common and the bad stuff was aplenty between about '71 and '81, so when an ensemble of accomplished players throw together something that contains the strength and integrity of both jazzrock and prog rock at their best, it may be worth looking into. Like, say, UK was. Keyboardist John Mason and trumpeter Craig Pruess led a notably tight party of bass/drums/guitar and in 1978 laid down what shaped-up to be among the nicest sessions of the period. But that's coming from someone who still plays old DiMeola records and thinks Colosseum II were one of the best outfits ever. Like, ever.

Don't get me wrong-- you do have to sit through the rippling, undulating sounds of 1970s synth-porn with its leering reminders of pimpled butts thrusting in ratty motel rooms and unwelcome visions of overcoated middle-aged men in darkened theaters performing unnatural acts. But when you like jazzrock (the material is Eclectic to the extent that much art music was), you accept the fact that it influenced all sorts of music, some not so dignified, and that a cheesy synth was an accessible and affordable way to compose modern content. Nigel Robinson's mean paradiddles support 'Don Genardos Waltz', swift Latin jazz-fusion that ebbs & flows, a solid opener followed by slightly commercial 'At the Gates of Consciousness'. And then there's 'Toefunk', the kind of bit that requires the utmost tolerance when listening to JR/F; a white man's shame; a cringing, wide-eyed exercise in obligatory mulatto mediocrity. Go away, Toefunk, go away.

Tragically titled 'Celestial Dream Song' is not much more than a cool space jam but 'Centre of the Winds' better, getting into symphonic jazzrock a la Hiseman's C2, brandishing laser twin guitar/keyboard lines and spicy dual leads. Killer cut, unlike drowsy 'Cassiopeia' which will undoubtedly help you sleep, but 'Contemplation' rouses and closes on a reasonable note.
