HASH(0x985223bc) out of 5 stars Hard to get ahold of, easy to digest!! (4.5 stars) 15 Sept. 2011
By wadrad - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Wow...who would have thought that one of the nicest little folky prog pieces released last year would come out of Greece?? Which is a country not much linked to prog since Aphrodite's Child. Aphrodite's Child was a prog band with Vangelis on keys formed back in 1968...and a not-so-popular fact (outside of prog circles anyway), Vangelis actually "tried out" with Yes after keyboard player Wakeman left in the early 70s...interesting to think how that might have shaped the band had it worked out.

And I had a HECK of a time even trying to track this disk down. To avoid the insane import price, I had a friend try to find it in Greece. She had no luck, and hardly anybody had even heard of it. The friend ended up buying the MP3s through some Greek web site for me (my Greek skills consist of about a 100 word vocabulary!) and I burned it to an audio CD. On a second trip to Greece, we discovered it hasn't even been released there. But my wife did meet a guy in the Athens airport music store who knows the bass player from the band, and he promised to send us a copy of the CD COD. There seems to be only about 2 or 3 degrees of separation for knowing anybody in that whole country...

First impression? Very nicely recorded work, and I mean the production and recording quality. That's the wonderful thing about digital-based recording nowadays...if you can find the musical talent, for not much money and a computer, you can make a decent recording.

Second impression? Wow...comes across like an enjoyable fusion of Jethro Tull, Renaissance (because of the female vox), and uh...maybe a splash of Gentle Giant and Steve Hackett's "Voyage of the Acolyte".

Third impression? "Clarinet in prog?? Hmm..." I thought and ultimately decided I like it. There's some interesting interplay between clarinet, flute, keyboards, bass, guitar (electric and acoustic), and vocalist. Might have been cool if they worked in some bouzouki (Greek stringed instrument), but they really didn't add much Greco-flavor to the whole dish. It very much sounds like a Britishy folk prog rock effort.

All the songs with vocals are sung in English except two. The female vocalist has a light touch and delivery like Annie Haslam (from Renaissance) and Sally Oldfield (Mike's sister), and when she sings in English, there's NO hint of a Greek accent (which I'm pretty familiar with) fact, she sounds like she's from the UK. For a taste of what I'm talking about, check out the ample clips on YouTube.

All in all, a great piece of work. Mostly folky, but it does dive into some chunky electric guitar and Hammond organ work in a few places, and even a touch of jazz (in the "Ena Pedi" track) just enough to spice the whole thing up. Nothing really original in the way of style on here, but it is a very invigorating revisiting of a type of music not heard much since the 70s. If you dig Tull, Hackett's "Voyage of the Acolyte", or Mike Oldfield's work with sister Sally, then you'll probably find something to like on here as well.
