Description du produit
Réédition. Le projet prog metal instrumental réunissant 3 membres de Dream Theater et le légendaire bassiste Tony Levin (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel...). Paru en 1998, ce premier album a montré qu'on pouvait proposer une musique instrumentale et progressive tout en restant accessible.

Les morceaux qui assurent précités parfois ne sont parfois que du déballage technique (encore que ça ne me gêne pas trop, j'ai l'habitude avec Dream Theater (cf Train Of Thought)).
Bien qu'improvisé la plupart du temps, cet album est plutôt insipide et on est en droit d'attendre mieux de la part de tels musiciens (attente qui sera comblée par LTE 2). Je ne lui mets que 2 étoiles car 3 morceaux biens sur 8, c'est fort peu.
Amateurs de prog', oubliez cet album et ruez-vous sur son successeur qui est sans commune mesure avec celui-ci.

1) Paradigm Shift A dizzy foot chase ensues between a purse snatcher and a determined acrobatic older teenager along the streets and alleyways of New York city. The thief isn’t safe from his dogged pursuer as they both leap over fences, scramble up the sides of rickety brownstone fire escapes, dart and jump from rooftop to rooftop. Several times the hero catches up to the crook and the two scuffle, the teen sometimes landing thudding blows and other times the purse thief kicking the teen off of him only to see their mad dash pursuit resume. At the end of the second act the chase slows down into a cat-and-mouse fishing expedition as the thief has managed to duck into a department store as the hero tries to figure out how to flush him out. In the last moments the thief takes a hostage at knife point before cops catch up to the scene and put him down once and for all! [Driving instrument: guitar]
2) Osmosis A bullfrog grabs a rubber band and some marshy buddies and talks them into chillaxing amongst the reeds on a warm summer night with a mild breeze blowing through. [Driving instrument: keyboards]
3) Kindred Spirits A high rise office worker is late for their shift and so must hustle by foot to get there on time. Dodging other pedestrians, work crews who are tearing up the sidewalks, and a few daredevil bicycle deliverers they make it to the high rise thinking they’re going to make it only to find the escalator isn’t working, the elevators are all going the wrong direction, and the stairs are exhausting. But there are moments of mild relief or comedy as they see Francis smiling from behind the rim of her glasses and Dave, that bumblefoot, drop his brief and scatter pages all over the floor. They arrive with a feeling of triumph at the cubicle noticing the boss in a meeting and not having made all of their morning rounds yet and they happily get to work tapping away on their computer. [Driving instrument: guitar]
4) The Stretch A group of youth, mid to late 1970s, shuffling down the street passing a basketball back and forth and emulating the Harlem Globetrotters while on their way to the basketball court. [Driving instrument: bass]
5) Freedom of Speech A resigned, unhurried conversation between two older lovers who have shared a lot of their lives together are now thinking that it is time to seek new relationships. There are bursts of tears, sad acceptance, but then one of them has an idea that excites them! What if, even if only for the sake of their long years together, they give it one last try and go off on a vacation together doing something they’ve never done before like travel to South America, to Brazil at Carnival? They both get very excited, very energized over the idea and they start to brainstorm others and laugh. They transition to a night on the town, go dancing, laugh and talk and argue a little with other couples and with each other, and when they get back home they fall into each other’s arms invigorated, spent, happy. [Driving instrument: keyboards]
6) Chris and Kevin’s Excellent Adventure A few guys get together in a studio and try to nail down a funky melody and have a hard time hanging onto it. [Driving instrument: drums]
7) State of Grace Chris and Kevin were best buds in their teens. Sadly Kevin lost his life in a car accident and Chris is crushed. At the funeral Chris, a classically trained guitarist, gives a solo performance lamenting the loss of his dear friend. [Driving instrument: guitar]
8) Universal Mind Wild mountain goats chasing each other along the side of sheer cliffs; droves of bats exiting their cave and blackening the sky as they swirl and swarm and perform aerial attacks on outmatched insects; ridiculously sped-up time-lapse photography of flowers opening and closing over the course of a spring and summer; dolphins playing and leaping; lemmings running over a cliff and falling through the sky. In short, a wild nature film. [Driving instrument: guitar] This is my favorite track, and it’s pretty wild and active.
9) Three Minute Warning The continents get together for a little soiree and invite the islands too. The continents dip into the pool and kick about a bit but mostly float. There’s good food, refreshing laughter, and a bit of bluster between them. The islands sometimes get dunked and get bruised between the continents mashing together and have to pinch and pull and tug to get out of the way or dislodge themselves. The party goes long into the night and some of the continents get drunk while others get sleepy. Antarctica plays it cool and tries to get cozy with Africa while Europe and Asia start shoving each other back and forth and almost come to blows. Britain tries to corral Australia who spends most of her time relaxing with South America and tries to drown out the schmoozing and boozing North America who is acting like a know-it-all. Many of the small south sea islands join up and have their own little rave away from all of the other big bruisers. Things get a little out of hand for the islands in the wee hours of the morning and it upsets Asia who comes and breaks up all of their excitement. The party started at sundown and lasts until sun up when everyone returns to their appointed positions, all yawning and tired, and a couple of the islands with black eyes. As they settle in they drift off to sleep while the world goes on around them… [Driving instrument: all share their parts over the course of almost 30” but the guitar and keyboards hold the biggest sway]
Normally, a track-by-track commentary would suffice, but in this case, I think the album as a whole can be discussed as one. If you're expecting Dream Theater without singing, you'll only be half pleased. Like I said, there is a deep "jam band" vibe throughout the album, but it always stays on its proper course. There is real song structure here, but there is heavy improvisation in the form of bass fills, drum fills, and extended solos which give it that "jam" feeling at times.
I did not give album five stars because I think the final CD master was produced too loudly. Keep in mind that loudness and volume are vastly different. Loudness is the overall average sound level a CD possesses when it is minted. Just like water flowing through a hose, a CD can only take so much loudness before it begins to burst. This CD frequently teeters on the very edge of a CD's capacity for maximum loudness, which distorts the sound. Case in point: if you have medium to good equipment, the guitar intro for "Kindred Spirits" shows some crackling sounds for the first few notes. This is not your equipment; it's coming from the final master. There are also other instances on the album where it seems like Portnoy's drum kicks drown out the surrounding notes from the other instruments for a few milliseconds, primarily Jordan's synthesizers. There are other examples as well. This is due to the "loudness wars," which was in full swing in 1998 when this album was mastered. It's a shame, because an album with this much instrumental expertise and showmanship should be experienced with a dynamically rich master. However, I don't feel that this master is as bad as other masters out there (many of DT's latest albums suffer terribly from the loudness wars), so I only knocked off one star. As far as content, this is a five star album.
