Osiris-Beyond Control - Live -WAV


Ai putada, siguinte
Muitas pessoas não pensariam que uma cena de rock prog existiria no país do Bahrein, mas, graças à banda Osíris é certamente nos livros de recordes. Osiris gravou três álbuns no início dos anos 80 (que viria a ser re-lançado em Musea) antes de tomar um pouco de uma pausa. Em 1991 a banda voltou em conjunto, eo resultado é este documento bem ao vivo, finalmente está sendo lançado hoje, mais uma vez por o pessoal da Musea.

Se você não estiver familiarizado com Osiris (e há uma boa chance de que você não é), a banda toca um estilo muito melódico e lírico, bem como Camel ou médio período de Gênesis, que apresenta o trabalho de guitarra apaixonado de Mohamed Alsadeqi, teclados exuberantes de dois jogadores, e vocais fortes de Sabah Alsadeqi. Do CD de oito faixas, metade são inéditas, enquanto os outros são retirados dos três álbuns de estúdio. Aqui, em um formato ao vivo, as músicas têm mais energia, e, definitivamente, assumiram um estilo mais sinfônico. O "Medley de" maravilhoso Tales dos mergulhadores "é uma peça de dez minutos que os ofícios cativantes licks de guitarra e sintetizadores diversos, enquanto a faixa" Fantasy "parece ser uma homenagem a Camel, e características de jogar Mohamed Alsadeqi de guitarra lírica, tanto no estilo de Andrew Latimer. algumas das bandas mais fortes faixas de seus álbuns de estúdio fazer uma aparição, como "Reflexões" e "Lost and Found", e ambos são espirituosos e polidos versões ao vivo que respira uma nova energia na visão original que poderia foram destinados a eles.

De acordo com as notas do encarte, Osiris tem duas novas gravações nas obras, que serão ambos álbuns conceituais. Este deve ser um verdadeiro deleite para os amantes do rock progressivo, como a julgar por essa gravação ao vivo, esta é uma banda que cresceu aos trancos e barrancos, e está pronto para fazer o salto em águas prog mais reconhecidos.

Hey your Freaks

Not many people would think that a prog rock scene would exist in the country of Bahrain, but thanks to the band Osiris one is certainly in the record books. Osiris recorded three albums in the early 80's (later to be re-released on Musea) before taking a bit of a break. In 1991 the band got back together, and the result is this fine live document, finally being released today, once again by the good folks at Musea.

If you are not familiar with Osiris (and there's a good chance that you are not), the band plays a very melodic and lyrical style, much like Camel or mid period Genesis, that features the passionate guitar work of Mohamed Alsadeqi, lush keyboards from two players, and strong vocals from Sabah Alsadeqi. Of the CD's eight tracks, half are previously unreleased, while the others are taken from the three studio albums. Here, in a live format, the songs have more energy, and definitely have taken on a more symphonic style. The wonderful "Medley from "Tales of the Divers" is a ten-minute piece that crafts catchy guitar licks and various synths, while the track "Fantasy" seems like a homage to Camel, and features Mohamed Alsadeqi's lyrical guitar playing, much in the style of Andrew Latimer. A few of the bands stronger tracks from their studio albums make an appearance, such as "Reflections" and "Lost and Found", and both are spirited and polished live versions that breathe new energy into the original vision that might have been intended for them.

According to the liner notes, Osiris has two new recordings in the works, both to be concept albums. This should be a real treat for progressive rock lovers, as judging by this live recording, this is a band that has grown leaps and bounds, and is ready to make the jump into more recognized prog waters.

Conqueroo - From The Vulcan Gas Co. (1967-68, US, Psychrock, 5 Hours Back vinyl rip, flac, cue, log, DR, artwork)


If any Austin group of the late '60s could be called the Vulcan Gas Company's de facto house band, it would have to be the Conqueroo. That, despite the fact that the Vulcan was self-billed as a psychedelic concert hall and the Conqueroo was hardly psychedelic although certainly a hippie favorite. If any musical genre could have been attached to the eclectic Conqueroo, it would have been not one but a fusion of many: folk, rock, jazz, and blues. Nonetheless, the Conqueroo was a regular at the Vulcan -- featured prominently on many Vulcan handbills and posters -- from the hall's opening in October 1967 until its closing in mid 1970. Sonobeat owners Bill Josey Sr. and Rim Kelley (Bill Jr.) first heard the Conqueroo perform with the 13th Floor Elevators at Austin's Doris Miller Auditorium in January 1967. But ultimately it was the Conqueroo's regular performances at the Vulcan that convinced the Joseys they had to record the group.

Recording sessions at the Vulcan Gas Company -- initially in December 1967 and again in March '68 -- yielded Sonobeat's fifth release and third rock single, a pairing of Conqueroo Ed Guinn's I've Got Time (featuring an enigmatically dramatic, yet strangely reserved, duet) and 1 to 3 (featuring an equally dramatic but uninhibited vocal by its composer, Bob Brown). No fancy recording techniques were used; the single is nothing short of two great songs performed passionately by great musicians, captured just a little raw at one of Sonobeat's favorite venues. It remains the only commercial single release by the original incarnation of the Conqueroo, who often shared the Vulcan stage with the Elevators, Johnny Winter, or Shiva's Headband.

Sonobeat issued the Conqueroo's single with a two-sided black and white picture sleeve designed by legendary Austin illustrator Gilbert Shelton (who lived with the Conqueroo and half a dozen other assorted characters in a large house just off the University of Texas campus).

A stunning image by celebrated Austin photographer Belmer Wright (not to be confused with another great Austin photographer, Burton Wilson) completed the sleeve, which has a bit of the look and feel of one of those famous Vulcan Gas Company handbills of the '60s. Both sides of the sleeve are identical, except for the song titles, hand lettered by Shelton. A banner flowing through the OOs in "Conqueroo" proclaims "Recorded Live at the Vulcan Gas Co.", but the single was not actually recorded before a live audience. Shelton's sleeve art refers to "The Conqueroo", but the group was later known as just "Conqueroo".

Originally scheduled as Rs-104 (which collectors will note is etched in the single's dead wax), the Conqueroo release moved up a notch on Sonobeat's schedule after Shiva's Headband had second thoughts about the release of their single, also recorded at the Vulcan and originally scheduled for release ahead of the Conqueroo's. Bill Josey Sr.'s handwritten notes on the Conqueroo master tape box indicate both songs were recorded using two 2-track Ampex recorders. The second recorder was used for vocal overdubs that were recorded immediately after the band laid down the instrumental tracks. There is an ethereal "other worldness" to these recordings, imparted by the band itself but enhanced by the vast acoustics of the Vulcan Gas Company.

While cataloging the Sonobeat master tapes in 2008, we discovered two instrumental tracks that the Conqueroo recorded during the March '68 session. Both are instrumental tracks that probably were supposed to have vocals but were never completed. One song may be titled None of Your Business, Waitress. Unfortunately, there's no additional information about these tracks in the Sonobeat archives, so we're uncertain why they were never completed and released.

Genre: Symphonic Progressive/Psychedelic/Space Rock

PORTUGUÊS:
Mais outra gravação ao vivo do Grobschnitt feita por Eroc - o baterista da banda - dentre tantas outras que foram digitalizadas, restauradas e lançadas pela primeira vez. Vale constar que a grande maioria dessas gravações eram feitas com microfones posicionados no palco ao invés de serem diretamente gravadas da mesa de som. Felizmente a fita master deste show foi bem conservada e por isso a gravação está numa qualidade numa boa. Nesse show, o Grobschnitt incluía algumas músicas do 'Jumbo', o álbum mais recente até então da banda, fora a parte teatral que sempre esteve presente também.

ENGLISH:
Another Grobschnitt live recording made by Eroc - their drummer - amongst many other ones which were digitised, restored and released for the first time ever. It's important to mention that most of these recordings were made using microphones placed on the stage instead of being captured straight from the mixing desk. Fortunatly, this concert master tape was well preserved and consequently the sound quality is very good. In this concert, Grobschnitt included some songs from 'Jumbo' - their then most recent released album - besides the theatrical approach that had been always present on stage as well.

Osiris - Osiris - Great Prog Rock From Emirate of Bahrain - A Gift to my Grandfather OldrockerBR - WAV














E ai, putada, tudo legal, espero que sim
O Osiris vem de onde menos se podia imaginar em matéria de Rock.
Nós estamos acostumados a ouvir que lá (mundo arabe) tudo é proibido,com o choque das culturas cristã e muçulmano,mas de repente eu topei com o Osiris,e acho que com isso a gente deve ter mais cuidado com o que diz a nossa "Querida Imprensa Manipuladora da Opinião Pública"
Quando topei, resolvi escutar apenas por mera curiosidade, mas quando ouvi, aí fudeu de vez
Um progressivo de Primeira linha, de lascar , de ficar batendo punheta enquanto se escuta, ou fazendo um tipo charuto cubano e viajar com ele
Comprei no ato, assim como todos os outros da banda que estão à caminho do Brasil
Formada pelos Irmãos Mohammed e Nabil Al-Sadequi que vem de uma família de músicos.
As músicas tem grande influência da música arabe, com suas escalas pentatônicas
Bom, é isso ai, se voces quizerem mais informações, o site da banda é este aqui
http://www.dvdzak.com/osiris/
Então senhores passageiros:tomem os seus lugares, e ouçam as instruções
"Bom dia: Do seu lado direito voce vai encontrar uns papeizinhos brancos junto com 1 kilo de marofa da boa, do lado esquerdo um caixa de fósforo, e nesta viagem tudo é permitido, intão vamo que vamo.........."
Beijos, e até a próxima parada

Hey your Freaks
The Osiris comes from the least imaginable in the field of Rock.
We're used to hearing that there (Arab world) everything is forbidden, with the clash of Christian and Muslim cultures, but suddenly I came across the Osiris, and I think with this we should be more careful what you say our "Honey Press Handler Public Opinion"
When I ran, I decided to just listen out of curiosity, but when I heard, there once fucked
A progressive front line, chipping, to be masturbating while listening, or doing a kind Cuban cigar and travel with him
I bought the act, just like everyone else in the band who are on the way to Brazil
Formed by brothers Mohammed and Nabil Al-Sadequi that comes from a family of musicians.
The songs have great influence of Arabic music, with its pentatonic scales
Well, that's oh, if you guys would like more information, the band's website is this one
http://www.dvdzak.com/osiris/
So gentlemen passengers, take their seats and listen to the instructions
"Good day: On your right you will find a white slips along with a kilo of marijuana good, the left side of a matchbox, and everything is permitted on this trip; so let's let's you ........ .. "

Black Pearl - Live! (1970, US, bluesy soulpsych, Prophesy vinyl rip,single wav + cue, log, DR13, artwork)

Live Fillmore West October, 1968


*** Reviewed by great fellow Adamus67 ***

“Black Pearl appeared with a promising first album – no real experiments, but a distinct Yardbirds echo in the metallic clanging cacophony of precisely distorted guitars. Their second LP fizzled out in bad soul music.”

Yardbirds echo? Metallic clanging cacophony? Precisely distorted guitars? Oooh, yum. Time for a little online research and, hopefully, discovery…Turns out Black Pearl was a Boston band. Well, ultimately San Francisco-based, but originally from Boston (and coming from that area myself, there’s always a place in my heart for a Boston band). And their backstory is one of those classic gems you love to uncover when doing music-archeology.

Black Pearl was Bernie “B.B” Fieldings (vocals), Oak O’Connor (drums), Tom Mulcahy (guitar), Geoffrey Morris (bass), and Jerry Causi (guitar) and Bruce Benson (guitar). Morris, Causi and Benson had been members of the Barbarians, a mid-‘60s garage band from Cape Cod noted for a couple of reasons. They had longer hair than most bands at the time (which was still a big deal in the mid-‘60s), and their drummer, Victor “Moulty” Moulton, played with prosthetic hook, having lost his left arm in an explosion at the age of 14. He actually held one of his drumsticks with the hook! And, not only that, the Barbarians wrote and performed a rather melodramatic (albeit slightly humorous) song chronicling the drummer’s life and loss, “Moulty.” But the Barbarians were perhaps best known for their appearance in one of the first rock concert movies, The T.A.M.I. Show, with such big-timers as James Brown, Chuck Berry and the Rolling Stones, as well as their chart hit “Are You a Boy or Are You a Girl?”

Black Pearl’s live album was recorded at the Fillmore West in San Francisco in 1968. The record starts off with a soulful song called Uptown before hitting the Blues with I Get The Blues Most Every Night. The flipside is what you really need to listen to however. First there’s a cover of James Brown’s Cold Sweat. The tune is played a little more laid back with a much loser arrangement than the original, and it’s strung out to around 11 minutes. The drummer also drops a nice and long drum break in the middle. The album ends with another extended rendition of People Get Ready.

As you’ve probably guessed by now, if you’re a fan of the MC5, it would certainly be worth it to hunt down a copy of Black Pearl.
Thank you so much Adam for that effort

Black Pearl was composed of Bernie "B.B" Fieldings (vocals), Bruce Benson (guitar), Oak O'Connor (drums), Geoffrey Morris (guitar), Tom Mulcahy (guitar) and Jerry Causi (bass). Morris, Causi and Benson had been members of the Barbarians, a 60s garage band noted for their extreme long hair for the times and their single, " Are You a Boy or Are You A Girl". The Barbarians were also noted for the band's drummer, Moulty, who had lost one hand in a childhood accident and consequently played drums with a hook. The band was formed after Barbarians' singer and drummer Moulty refused to travel to Boulder, Colorado for a two week engagement. A new drummer, Oak O'Connor, plus Mulcahy and Fieldings, joined with ex-Barbarians Morris, Causi and Benson, all initially based in Boston, to form Black Pearl in 1967. The band relocated from Boston to San Francisco, after a period of time in Colorado. Fieldings, who was white, was a wild showman who modeled his stage presence on that of James Brown. His admiration for James Brown was evident on the group's live album, which contains a twelve minute version of James Brown's "Cold Sweat". As noted by one reviewer, "Black Pearl crank out some hard rockin' psych-rock music with the most ferocious drumbeats you've heard in a while." The band's three guitar lineup was considered to be both unique and powerful, being a format also found in contemporaries Moby Grape and Buffalo Springfield. Black Pearl released two albums, Black Pearl (1969) and Black Pearl - Live! (1970), with the second being less well-received than the first.
(~wikipedia)















Might revise this tomorrow, but wanted to get something up tonight before my radio show at KCRW. Best I can gather, Black Pearl was a Los Angeles based group, who put out a couple of records in the rock’n'soul vein (the other being a self-titled record on Atlantic with some really great artwork). They were led by B.B. Fieldings and featured not one, or two but three…count ‘em up, three guitarists (or four if you include the bass player).
Recorded live at the Fillmore West in Frisco in 1968, this record is fairly highly prized because of a pretty solid breakdown in “Cold Sweat.” Overall the record is a solid showcase for the group and for Fieldings’ sincere appreciation of black music. “Cold Sweat” shows off the best parts of the group, solid groove, nice and funky, mostly based off the James Brown original, but with other bits thrown in, particularly at the breakdown as B.B. calls out each member of the band “Memphis Soul Stew” style beginning with the drummer who he implores to do it “dirty” and “nasty”. “Uptown” is similar in style and feeling to “Cold Sweat,” though with some “mildly” racist essentialism associated with white folks going to the “darker” side of town to let it all hang out, though I think B.B.’s sincerity makes it seem more endearing (especially when he’s talking about soul food) than totally ignorant (A fine line admittedly, and maybe it’s just me, but since I’ve been doing cultural studies research on race and representation, I feel like I hear this trope a lot in the 50s and 60s). B.B. certainly was attempting to do his part to bridge the Soul / Hippie divide, this especially comes out during his version of “People Get Ready” which contains these pearls of wisdom towards the end.

Amon Düül II: Vive La Trance (1973) {2007 Remaster + Bonus Tracks} [FLAC]




Artist: Amon Düül II
Album: Vive La Trance
Genre: Psychedelic Rock, Krautrock
Year: 1973
Country: Germany
Label/Catalog: Revisited Records/REV 081 (2007 Remaster)
Format: FLAC (image+cue+log)



PORTUGUÊS:
Fazia tempo que eu não postava coisas do Amon Düül II, mas aqui vai o Vive La Trance, o sexto álbum de estúdio e um dos mais subestimados da banda. Ele foi feito nos moldes do Carnival In Babylon e Wolf City, e apesar de manter a mesma qualidade, ele parece não ter agradado a muitos fãs - natural de uma banda cuja discografia é bastante eclética e marcada por diversas fases. À essa altura, a banda se viu pressionada a criar músicas mais curtas e mais acessíveis, mas sem perder sua identidade sonora. Destaque também para as faixas bônus incluídas nessa remaster até então nunca lançadas.

ENGLISH:
It had been a long time I didn't post Amon Düül II stuff, but here we go with Vive La Trance, their sexth studio album and one of their most underrated as well. It was produced in the vein of Carnival In Babylon and Wolf City, and in despite of keeping their high quality, it probably haven't pleased many fans - very common in a band whose discography is quite ecletic and splitted into many phases. At that rate, the band saw themselves pressed to create more shorter and accessible songs, although not losing their sound identity. Enjoy also the previously unreleased bonus tracks included on this remaster.

So that's there, who want low, who does not want, fuck

Adamus67 Raw Material

Highway - Highway (1975) - Private Pressing

The history of the band began in 1965 when two Fairmont bands, The Pacers and The Corvairs, formed The Epicureans who evolved into Highway. Today, The Murphy Brothers Band has become the latest formation of Highway. Check out a great visual HISTORY OF THE BAND , and consider buying a Murphy Brothers Band album. The s/t Highway album is a great example of American mid seventies heavy guitar based blues rock, by a talented guitar orientated trio. Music as good as this is a rarity nowadays.
This limited CD reissue of the only album by HIGHWAY was made by the band in 1990. The original album privately released 1975 in Minnesota was an edition of 500 copies and became a very sought record for heavy, psycho & blues collectors. The music by this guitar orientated trio is blues influenced heavy rock with outstanding and variative guitar work that touches the "extended stoned westcoast-jam feeling". The mostly long compositions with melodic vocals - sometimes remind to a mix of 70´s Westcoast Rock and straight hardrock as the 70´s Ufo stuff, Jeff Liberman, Copperhead, B.Ö.C. 

This is a very good album made in 1975 though it sound in parts as if it could have been released earlier. Good psych rock with plenty of drum rolesresembling 'the who' at times with lots of chord changes and dancing bass.
Genuinely very good, privately published in 1975 (with very good sound and as good, if somewhat crude production) album of the American trio playing in a European-sounding, heavy guitar rock in a climate very early Wishbone Ash and Thin Lizzy (but without two guitarists playing in unison ...) - there is no exaggeration in these bands and fans will be delighted. The compositions are very good, tasty and vinyl  unfortunately veeeeery expensive!
This all original album was recorded in 1975 at Westminster Studio, outside Fort Dodge, Iowa. Only 500 copies were issued and released. In 1985, Highway guitarist Steve Murphy got a call from a collector in the Chicago area, who showed genuine interest in this rare album. In fact, Steve Murphy has received worldwide queries about the album. The album has received legendary status, as it has been "bootlegged" in a limited edition of 300. The bootleg very much like the original private pressing, but it was not made using any master tapes, and the song writing and musician credits do not appear on the album sleeve. Eventually the album was re-released officially on CD with four bonus tracks. This is the edition posted here. 
CD release was in 2005 when Murphy to be sought after by many fans of Hard Rock. 
This album is incredible, fantastic long songs and melodies, is the kind of sound that leaves the first hearing since the guy that ties in the sound 70's slack jaw. The sound is raw and the impression of having been recorded in one take. The guys who enjoyed the "Josephus", "Grand Funk" and "Led Zeppelin" will certainly enjoy this band much. This is another super daquelsa bands that unfortunately not revenge, today Steve leads the The Murphy Brothers Band in 2005 and was nominated for the prestigious Minnesota Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. You can download that is one more that carries our quality seal. I really like this firecracker, I hope you enjoy it too.

Plus - The Seven Deadly Sins (1969, UK, concept psychprog, Free Rec. CDrip, single flac + cue, log, vinyl + cd artworks)


One look at the cover and it should be clear that producers Simon Napier Bell and Ray Singer (who also penned about six of the tracks here) were trying to capitalize on the look and feel of Jesus Christ Superstar with this concept album that is laid out like a Catholic mass. The only musicians credited are Tony Newman (g), Max Simms (bass), and Mike Newman (d); there’s also vocalists (an entire choir on a couple tracks), piano, organ, violins, cellos and much more – which naturally leads one to believe this is more an album by the two producers, than that of the “band”, although the Newman brothers are credited with writing the remaining five songs. So what’s it all about? Imagine an eclectic mix of sixties styled rock and pop songs (early Who or pre-psychedelic Beatles might be a fair comparison) separated by short dissonant string quartet interludes, short spoken introductions, with some classical rips (the “Toccata” with the choir singing the names of the sins over and over is quite ridiculous, as is the silly doo-wop meets Elvis “Dismissal”, but the bombastic “Devil’s Hymn” for choir and band is quite cool, with its jazzy center section). The meat of the album is in the songs though, all of which sound a little dated (even by 1969 standards) but are still quite good. From the poppy “Envy: I’m Talking as a Friend” and “Pride”, to the out-and-out rockers “Sloth: Open Up Your Eyes” and “Gluttony: Something is Threatening Your Family”, the song-craftsmanship and arrangements throughout are at a very high level. Probably not for everyone, but those into sixties styled eclecticism might do well to check it out.

As Plus, brothers Mike (drums) and Tony (guitar) Newman and bassist Max Simms found an impressive mentor in the form of ex-Yardbirds bassist/producer Simon Napier-Bell. Napier-Bell was apparently instrumental in getting the trio a recording deal with ABC's short-lived Probe subsidiary.

In addition to co-producing 1969's "The Seven Deadly Sings", Napier-Bell and Ray Singer were credited with co-writing roughly half the album. A goofy concept piece (any guesses on the plotline), the set seemed to be a clumsy effort to cash in on the public's renewed interest in religion (aka "Jesus Christ Superstar", or "Mass In F Minor" Electric Prunes). Thematically and lyrically the album was clearly linked via brief spoken intros and instrumental interludes, which makes it even funnier to discover that musically the set's all over the spectrum. Material such as the instrumental "Gloria In Excelsis: Toccata" and "The Secrets: Devil's Hymn" mixed classical moves with chuch choirs and progressive moves. Elsewhere "Pride: Pride" and "Envy: I'm Talking As a Friend" offered up a startling pair of Badfinger-styled pop jewels, while "Avarice: Daddy's Thing" was surprisingly funky and "Wrath: Gemegemera" was standard hard rock. Needless to say, sales were far and few. (The album was originally released with an embossed, gatefold cover.)

Walflower Complextion - same + When I`m Far From You (66-67, US, Garage, 4 Little Indians doublevinyl rip, single flac + cue, DR, artwork)


US garage psych only released in Columbia in the '60s!
(~freakemporium)

These guys were recording in Bogota, Colombia, where equipment and practice areas were hard to come by. They were in high school and played events at the school, around the city (battle-of-the-bands) and private parties for embassy & oil company staff. I agree that some of their cuts are just OK -- but others are fantastic and unique. Example: Santa Marta. -- And I have their 2 original records.

Played parties, discos, once had a battle of the bands with a group called the "Super Beatles" (after their Vox amplifiers. Got a recording contract with a recording company in Bogota in 1966. Mark & Rich graduated from Colegio Nueava Granada in 67 and that was the end of the band. Rich was quite a good artist. Fred went on to be a studio musician and Mark is a university professor. Don't know about Pat or Chris.

Adamus67 Raw Material

Aquaplanage group derived from a fairly popular in the British Isles Fragile cover band devoted to the work of Yes. And though the band's debut disc, you can catch here and there, a la Anderson atmosphere and the company is definitely a Aquaplanage say that they play like Yes, it would be too great a simplification.
Aquaplanage group composed of a six-game: Robert Illesh (g, k, fl), Steve Carney (v), John Bastable (bg),, Tom Dawe (g), Max Hunt (k), Mitch Harwood (drums) From what I remember, the latter is also a member of another, very popular British prog rock group named Tantalus. The album the band in a few songs ("The Sands Of Time", "Aquaplanage", "Ode To Grey Mornings") are accompanied by string trio: Deborah Peake, Ruth and Sophie McGibben Hurra.

The band with their music, which presents on this album ranks among the teams who play melodic progressive rock, whose inspirations are running in the direction of the characteristic "soft" sound typical of the American bands the likes of Styx, Boston and REO Speedwagon. But Aquaplanage can put it more strongly, and type in an epic variety of species. Evidence of this album even opens the song "Ode To Grey Mornings." This five-part, to last quarter suite is a real possibility of considerable review team. From the acoustic mood of cheerful folk music played on flute melodies (something like Jethro Tull) by sharp broken rock sound (bowing to King Crimson), through the scented atmosphere of the old epic of Genesis, to the neoprogresywne atmosphere in the vein of early Marillion. This composition is slightly suffers from neuter the final, but the poignant highlights of there are at least several times during its duration. The second track on the album, "The Sands Of Time" is an unexpected Middle Eastern influences. Certainly they are far from zeppelinowskiego "Kashmiru," but the many ethnic Turkish solution can certainly intriguing. The eight-minute recording of "Nature's Sunday" is a song full of contrasts and it starts from the soft guitar, piano, in his second hit of the full power loud hard rock guitar parts. Immediately after the disc is the instrumental track "Solara". This is based on piano sounds on a huge nod to Rick Wakemana solo career. On board are two other instrumental pieces: the title "Aquaplanage" and placed at the end of the album "Theme". Both are among the most melodic fragments of the album with a fast memorable melodic themes.

Ongoing program of this album supplement equal to the time three more songs, of which "One Star" is an attempt to address a group of Christmas carol, "A Song To Stand Above Them All" is a rather typical, making a little to the whole rock number, but it ' Heaven's Gate ', due to the unusually warm ears romantic melody and strong chorus, instantly became my favorite for the title of best song on the album.
Quite a successful album. I do not think it is true to his debut hit Aquaplanage conquered the world stage with prog rock, but we turn attention to this album. It is a fairly strong position, and - to allow for the fact that in the composition of the team has been operating for almost 10 years - as the first release in the acquis group, it sounds very mature and seems to be a very well crafted album and refined in every respect (for confirmation of my words I will add that the cover was designed by Ed Unitsky). You can hear clearly that Aquaplanage group knows what it's all progressive playing it. So, for me, this year's Aquaplanage candidate to a "progressive discovery of the year."

I caught up recently in the fact that listening to a new record automatically composes sentences in his mind of any review. That is especially the case of albums that have actually received for review. I conclude that it distorts a little bit, unfortunately, receipt of material, but it is somewhat inevitable. On the other hand, we should really try to be as objective a desire to not be an automatic przypochlebienia the band or label, on which boards receive.
With such a fresh approach and an open mind, put the player in question here puck. All indications are that the team Aquaplanage is not very well known in Poland, so let me write a few words about him. Actually, I think the best and highly original group will present the same: "We are born and die. It is immutable and absolute certainties of human existence. But between these events, we set off on a journey, intricate, winding path of experience and expertise. This path is not simple or equal to requires us to skilfully navigate through the storms of our individual experience and history. It's like sets the course for our personal landscape determines our individual beings. This is Aquaplanage
Note that Aquaplanage emerged from a Yes tribute band, Fragile. The album "Ode to Grey Mornings" is the debut of the group, but what would debut! Although the recordings were created already in 2002, but were only released late last year.
Aquaplanage: 

The album consists of 9 tracks that last a total of almost 59 minutes. Hovers over the whole aura of creativity Yes indeed, but Aquaplanage is by no means any clone nor a mere imitator, and the music will find much more precious accretions. That is at least in the opening disc, the most important and most advanced over a 15-minute composition "Ode To Grey Mornings." This multi-threaded, consisting of 5 parts of a song is like a quintessentially Aquaplanage. We can find all the characteristics of this team together in a truly impressive record. Stylistically it is associated with the achievements of Transatlantic, especially in the initial part, echoed in the background somewhere Jethro Tull from the early 70's. There is perhaps even such momentum, but it's an advantage, because the music sounds fresh and not tired as much. "Ode To Grey Mornings" is undoubtedly the most progressive song on the album, and another record is like a stylistic continuation of the individual parts of the suite.

"The Sands Of Time" is, in turn, the most original recording on the album. Original and unique because of the use of Orient music elements together with a strictly progressive primary motive. Due to these pollutants, and the title track, this recording reminds me irresistibly of the computer game 'Prince Of Persia ".

"Nature's Sunday" ends in a contractual sense, first, a more progressive part of the album that really shows the most impressive, though it will find even more things worth listening. Would put this song boldly next to "Ode To Grey Mornings," even though it is not recording as much comprehensive and of course shorter. Again, while listening to the music irresistibly think of Transatlantic. After a lazy and peaceful two-minute introduction followed by development with distinctive vocal harmonies. Very interesting as the use of the flute, which, moreover, appears very often on the album. In the end, the band finally decided to speed up and play more rock, using a strong guitar riff and raw solos. There will also be room for virtuoso performances by keyboardist who uses a whole range of sounds, from the very electronic by the Hammond piano ending. The whole ends with a gentle flute.

"Solara" as the first instrumental track on the album have been put on a miniature keyboard. Resonate with the echoes of Mike Oldfield's work, and Yes. This is such a light, very pleasant interlude, and how all three instrumental tracks, an ornament of this album.

"Aquaplanage" continues the instrumental part of the album. This song is one of the most beautiful moments of the album. Delicate use of cello, strings and flute provides the backdrop for an acoustic guitar in the style maintained by Steve Hackett. This remarkable, memorable melody, and we have a great example of a mini masterpiece.

"Heaven's Gate" is an obvious & hit. Yes, I'm not afraid to use the word, as in this song you will find all the characteristics of race, melodic hit, which of course never hit on any charts, but well you breathe and relax. Although the singer has a very original voice, but stylistically he sings here very much like Jon Anderson. Pleasant and cheerful song that perfectly fits the spring sunny climate.

"A Song to Stand Above Them All'' more rock, traditional piece that somehow does not convince me, unfortunately. Dominated by monotonous riff and slightly hidden hammondowskie keys is simply boring, expressionless. Only the middle, this little jazzy piece is worthy of attention . lot where an acoustic guitar and vocals in the style of Roger Daltrey. As a whole, this song is a huge disappointment.

But the next "Theme" rewarded all in two ways. This is the third and last longer instrumental. This time is kept in the style of Camel, and that to my ears the same sweetness. A wonderful, quiet, atmospheric and very moving moment on the album. For such moments should be familiar with this music. This track is unfortunately one drawback: it is simply too short.

The whole of the material ends very successful carol for me "One Star", banal and simple, but yet they must be Christmas carols. You could think to approach it more innovative. Well, too bad that the album did not end with "Theme".

I am very positively surprised Aquaplanage debut. Although the band has created quite uneven, sometimes secondary, but still generally quite fresh music that can really draw. Relying heavily on the style of the 70's and using the experience gained in a Yes tribute band, Fragile, musicians invited us to the rich land of progressive or maybe rock music art. Not ustrzegli the weaker moments, such songs as "One Star" or "A Song To Stand Above Them All" could even be on this record is not found, and not lose it on that, and even gained for me. On the other hand, the material on this album was created since 2002 and the band probably wanted him in the end the whole place on the debut. Really gained a surprisingly good result and I am glad that I could come into contact with the works. I do not know whether the group will release more albums, but I know that I will follow her fate, waiting for the continuation of "Aquaplanage".
