3 stars SOLAR PROJECT is a German Symphonic Rock band, which was formed in 1988 out of the ashes from a band called SOLAR SYSTEM. Their first album "The Final Solution" was released in 1990 and since then they have recorded three more albums and "Five" is, like the name says, their fifth album. This is the first album I have heard from the band. "Five" is a complex concept album about the four elements and the fifth one. The music is very 70's and 80's sounding with some reminiscences to DJAM KARET and PINK FLOYD. There's a lot of variation, from slowly progressing, dreamy psychedelic, to powerful complex progressive outbursts. I get a somewhat shattered impression, maybe because of the many different musicians and vocalists who contribute to this album. Some of the keyboard sounds feels a little bit dated too. Especially the typical 80's sounding ones! But all in all this is a nice album with many exciting moments.
