Mystery - One Among The Living (2010)
The fourth album from this Canadian band.
Mystery is a trio on this album with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, drums and vocals.
Numerous other guest artist, famous and none so famous, contributes with keyboards, bass, moog, children laughter, female vocals and guitars.
The band has had a steady career so far. It was a bit sidetracked when their vocalist Benoit David joined Yes for a period.
He is very much present on this album and he is the only male vocalist present on an album full of guest musicians. His vocals is at times superb.
The music is a mix of symphonic prog and prog metal throughout this seventy minutes long album. There is also some pomp rock here too.
There are also some rather banal children music here too. But not that much, thankfully.
Mystery is now proving that they are very good in their craft..... and their sound. The music is a bit too hard to fully get the nuances in their songs. That is a gripe I have got with this album.
Besides of that, this album is a good album from a very good band. A band who are now touring and making a good name for themselves. Make sure you pick up this album, wherever you can find it.
