|......................................THE BAND AND RECORD OF THE MONTH|
I have to say that "D" Stephane Desbiens is a phenomenal guitar player and a fantastic talented musician. His music is diverse enough to recall the some important seventies bands and musicians like "Yes", "Camel", "Pink Floyd", "Genesis", "Steve Howe", "Curved Air", "Steve Hackett" and "Kansas", adding a special combination of instrumental symphonism, with a dynamic feeling and positive vibrations. "D" plays a kind of musical trip that, leaves you thru different emotions, full of texture and energy, including a spectrum of emotional and dynamic orchestral elements. The music on "The Sagarmatha Dilemma" is very beautiful, layered within strong songwriting. All the tracks shows an very diverse inspiration, with elaborate arrangements that it keep a good balance between all instruments, mainly among the keyboards and guitars. On the first track "Closer to Heaven", the music follows around symphonic style with many instrumental sections, mainly when the violin become the main solo instrument, you can find the same musical energy listening the tracks "Sagarmatha Dilemma", "Red Mountain", "Thin Air", "Even If a Was Wrong", "Radio Sherpa" and "I'm Coming Down" where everything is just perfect and majestic, it clear that "Sagarmatha Dilemma" is one of the best albums of the year. Brilliant, amazing, perfect and a fantastic work, highly recommendable for all progressive rock fans around the world...
