4 stars Although the first album from North-American band RELAYER "Grander Vision" has the lower quotation between his discography in P A, I consider their more consistent work ! This consideration is intimately linked to the fact of more easy interaction of various musical parts that compounds each track from this album ( fact that I don't feel so easily in their next works). The music is filled by countless influences, as for instance YES, GENESIS, RUSH and some others in small scale. The first track "Anyone" is a theme mainly influenced by RUSH and their more heavy counterpart TILES, the guitar clearly influenced by Alex Lifesson' ( is enough listen RUSH's track "Subdivisions" guitar solo). the track 2 "Grander Vision" is a beautiful symphonic prog tune in YES/GENESIS musical construction and maybe the best track of the album. The Track 3 is a "nervous" ballad , where keyboards mixing Wakeman/Banks and Styx's keyboardist Dennis de Young style with detach. The last track " Wire Mill Scars " is very close by GENESIS, due some vocal parts, but , the guitars sounds again like Lifesson's style. My rate is 4 stars !!!
