5.0 out of 5 stars SENSATIONAL DEBUT 31 Jan 2013
By AC
Format:Audio CD
Now here we have a bit of a treat for all lovers of progressive rock. Written and led by the keyboard dazzle of Douglas Docker, the cunningly named Docker's Guild sees a whole host of first class musicians involved in this, the first part of a series of albums. How do the following grab you? Vocalists John Payne (Asia), Goran Edman (ex Malmsteen, Karmakanic), Tony Mills (TNT) and Amanda Somerville (Avantasia, Epica), guitarists Guthrie Govan (Asia) and Jeff Watson (Night Ranger), bassist Tony Franklin (Blue Murder) and drummers Gregg Bissonette (David Lee Roth / Joe Satriani) and Magnus Jacobson (Miss Behavior). Not bad eh and fortunately the album sees good use of all amongst captivating compositions that have depth and soul.

The sound of The Mystic Technocracy results from the mixture of several music styles. Progressive rock is the main driving force with reference points in sound being Yes, ELP, Dream Theater and Genesis. Whilst the songwriting and vocal arrangements have an air of more traditional melodic rock and AOR acts, mostly Asia and Journey about them.

Couple this with more subtle and unusual influences from the likes of David Bowie (including a great cover of "Loving The Alien") and Jean-Michel Jarre and you will start to see how this is a big sounding record.

The Mystic Technocracy is perhaps, to be expected, a concept album (or first part of). It is the fictional outcome of a very simple observation: for 4000 years man has tortured, murdered, waged warfare and committed genocide in the name of the same God worshiped by Christians, Jews and Muslims, the three monotheistic religions. It is not a story against religion, but it is a story about the madness of man when he falls under the influence of fanatical dogmatic faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars The album of the decade. 8 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow, here is the successor to Greg Guiffria's crown. I love progressive rock but find that a lot of the modern stuff is lifeless. So imagine my joy to find something that takes the best of the 70s concept album and brings it right into my living room in a cyber punk re imagining of the world. If William Gibson and Ian M Banks could get together with Fish, early Genesis, Yes and early Asia they might have be able to write a thought provoking saga of human evolution seen from a different point of view. That of the Technocrats.
Enough about the story. Musically this is the strongest Progressive album I have heard in years. If you love your progressive rock to be British in the finest sense of the word. I remember when I first listened to Greenslade and was like where is the guitar? It was the King of those moments when you discover a musical experience so complete. Douglas Docker is joined by luminaries from the rock, aor and progressive fields. These musicians show that if you work hard enough you can create an album that sounds like they have been playing together forever.

Tony Mills of TNT is the stand out vocalist on this album. Also what I love is that it starts amazing and ends up as a revelation. I cannot recommend this album enough. I cannot wait for the next part.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CD For the Future! 16 Nov 2012
By Rock Yours - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Beautiful and emotional rock opera we have here with the great keyboards up front, spacey sounds and great compositions with no weak tracks. It's rare that a cd will keep my attention all the way through, but this one does. Remind me a bit of Haken's material with the overall sound and songwriting style, that will please those who enjoy a symphonic approach with their prog. A classic that i wouldn't tag as a Neo-Prog, because i don't have the impression that it copy the past, but could be the new future sound of progressive rock started with Ayeron, with less emphasis on guitars and more on keyboards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great prog rock album 23 Nov 2012
By Mark Queue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is really 4 and a half stars: Guthrie govan plays guitars all over the place: the only reason it's not 5 stars is I wish Guthrie were allowed a little more! (listen to guthrie's solo album Erotic Cakes to really what an amazing guitarist he is). But this work is really exceptional: it's got some of the pop sensibility of Saga, some of the prog rock sensibility of NightWish, some of the later sounds of Yes. To compare it against those other bands more is to give you a feel of the sound: it is a unique piece. You can tell the people worked hard on this album: the production is very good, the arrangements are well thought out. Many of the tunes stay in my head: it's proggy but also very catchy.

Give this album a chance, I think you'll like it if you like Nightwish, Saga or Yes.
