4 stars The second CD from SPACED OUT is even better then their first album. Their brilliant instrumental progressive jazz-fusion is mix between strictly structured compositions and freely improvised passages. I think that I was expecting something else with the debut CD (Unicorn Records hadn't released anything like this before) and that it limited my way of thinking when I listened to it. It wasn't until the release of "Eponymus II" that I really recognized what a great band this is. This album is however a big improvement compared to SPACED OUT's debut album. - The musicians are absolutely outstanding. Especially the bass player Antoine Fafard is a real maestro picker a la Stanley Clarke and Jaco Pastorious. I can also hear reminiscences to some of my favourite bands The BRECKER BROTHERS, MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA, RETURN TO FANTASY AND WEATHER REPORT. SPACED OUT is a band that really deserves a wider recognition. - Don't be scared away by the extremely ugly cover artwork. This album can be appreciated both by fans of jazz-fusion and progressive rock, but perhaps most of all by other musicians who can understand the technical brilliance performed here.
