4 stars JADIS fourth studio album "Understand" is rather straightforward and could be labelled as a symphonic, neo-progressive pop album. The music is a mix between ARENA, IQ, PENDRAGON, RUSH, The URBANE and YES. I have heard a few tracks from their previous "Somersault" album and I liked the musical direction on that album a lot more. The songs have strong choruses, sweeping keyboards and great guitar playing. The vocals are very good and so are the backing vocals. The highlights are the opening "Where In The World", "Alive Inside", the instrumental "Between Here & There", "Giraffe Chariot" and the closing "Counting All The Seconds". The cover artwork is magnificent and it's really appealing to me. Overall it's a great album, but personally I would've wanted a little bit more "progressiveness" and originality, but I believe that it will be a much-appreciated album in a historical JADIS perspective.
