I believe that this was the first Jadis studio album but I haven't heard the original version (sorry guys). However, I love the 2005 version. I'm not one to write a critique track by track. I already have a selection of Jadis albums - live and studio - and I love them all. This album though is the best 'sound'. It is a very much a team effort but there is something about the guitar work. I'm not sure whether it is how Gary Chandler plays his guitar or whether it is the instrument itself, but it has me mesmerised. Jadis are a band who should be listened to be a lot more people. I'm sure many would be surprised to find themselves won over. Try it and see. You might like it.

Stumbled across Jadis many times whilst listening to other favourites like It Bites, IQ, Marillion and others of the neo-prog persuasion, so thought it about time I gave them a fairer 'crack of the whip' hence the decison to download the entire album, and play it in this fashion.

Was I blown away? No, but on the other hand I enjoyed listening to a very good album made by some masterful musicians, BUT it does not have it's own identity (for me!), they come across as a strong 'covers' band that have found a comfortable niche - unfair? Probably to those who are dyed-in-the-wool fans of Jadis, but hey, this is a review based upon personal tastes. However, the opening guitar on 'Holding Your Breath' does actually lift the whole album for me, and thus ends on a high note, plus the track is just a bit 'meatier' than the rest....

Give it a go, if you are partial to progressive guitar-drum-keyboard music then you should find it will get more than one play; perhaps I should re-visit the album again and see if it grows....

No bones about it, this is one hell of a CD ! Right from the off, if you're into prog rock you'll relish this !! There are elements of Marillion, Hackett, Genesis, Kansas, Yes and It Bites in here, but the music is never a pastiche of those great artists and their sounds, but utilises the various musical styles and melds them together into a gorgeous and original whole ! This is a lesson in commitment, skill and talent. Buy it now 'cos you'll never tire of listening to it !! Brilliant !!

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Jadis effort to date 26 Jun. 2005
By thefumigator - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is, in my opinion, the best Jadis album. All I can say is that the songs are very well structured; the melodic guitar solos are my favorites, as are the pads sounds. Vocals are very melodic-oriented as in the other albums, and maybe tends to be somewhat like AOR commercial rock as usual, something that can turn people out of Jadis in first listening.
But I would at least listen to this album , there are tons of melodies, the songs are much better than in the other albums, so much that none of the songs makes me skip it. It took me some listening to get used to it, since I'm more used to IQ vocals, which are also more like Jon Anderson. Jadis vocalist reminds me more to Steve Vai's Firegarden album, which is a masterpiece of progressive rock (yeah, I said progressive, get that one too!).
My personal favorites are the 4 first tracks, then the title track which is really good with the flute being a main instrument, a really beautiful piece of music. The last 2 tracks aren't bad, they fit perfectly in the album. Overall conclusion: if you liked Jadis before with the other albums, then get this one, it won't disappoint you. If you liked this album, another addition would be "Dark Matter" by IQ and maybe previous Jadis works. I personally liked the first Jadis album too. Much longer and half instrumental is Steve Vai - Firegarden, remember that one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice album 20 Sept. 2012
By Hippie Ric - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I recently got turned on to Jadis from listening to my IQ channel on Pandora (keyboardist Martin Orford from IQ is in Jadis). I now have 4 CD's by them and I really enjoy their stuff. This CD is very strong from the beginning of track 1 and goes through to track 6 with nice catchy guitar riffs (especially track 2 "Hiding In The Corner"), laid back but strong vocals and tasteful flowing keyboards. Then comes track 7 clocking in at almost 10 minutes - "Holding Your Breath", this is a great instrumental with a lot of depth and hints at many of the bands that these guys cut their teeth on. I hear sounds from many of the 'old' prog masters as well as more main-stream rockers with a little pop thrown in. It even does a Tangerine Dream style thing in the bridge at 5:48. I find the guitar playing by front man Gary Chandler to be smooth with overall good tone and creativity, add that to the rest of the band and this is an enjoyable 'Light' Prog CD. I for one am glad I came across them!

When I heard "The Beginning and the End" , I was surprised I had never been made aware of this band! Enjoyed most of the songs on this album. Will add to my list of Prog bands.
5.0 out of 5 stars The best prog I have heard in a while! 1 Dec. 2012
By RDC - Published on Amazon.com

It's a good thing I downloaded this as an MP3. If I had bought it as a CD I would have work it out by now and purchased at least one more copy (sorry Amazon for the lost CD sale). From the first track to the last this is an excellent work. The songs range from 4 to 9 minutes. Great musicianship, good song structure, decent lyrics...but it is the prog rock elements I really like. "Song-based" prog rock always seemed a little oxymoronic to me. Some of the great bands have pulled it off (see "Eleventh Earl of Mar" by Genesis, "Frequency" by IQ, "The Doorway" by Spock's Beard), but I find that Jadis is very good at it. I was please to find that they break out of the "song-based" mode on such classic prog songs as "Sleepwalk", "Wonderful World", and "The Beginning and the End". Even the shorter works are well done and presage the direction they would eventually take on CDs like Photoplay. I highly recommend this CD.
