5 stars How is surprising theworld of progressive music!!! When you find a lost pearl practically unknown by the majority of the prog maniacs (only one review in Progarchives) you start to think " How many trerasures like this remains in forgetfulness?" Tjis is the case for DEJÁ-Vu "Between the Leaves". The music is a involving merge of hard-rock and symphonic prog. The mainly influences is DEEP PURPLE, MOUNTAIN, something from THE JIMMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE by the hard-rock stream and YES, GENTLE GIANT, ELOY AND PINK FLOYD by the symphonic and space/psychedelic stream. Another very strong characteristic is the use of mellotrons and synths like musical "landscapes" in order to give a pompous atmosphere in some hard moments ( such in a certain Eloy passages) and the harpiscord for make a counterpoint with bass and drums for refine the rhythmic section( which reminds me Gentle Giant) . Highlights for the tracks "Burning Bridges", "Between the Leaves" and "Somebody Cares", this last in my opinion a complete exercise of creation blending with matery this opposite influences. My rate is obviously 5 stars !!!
