Guerin. Shaun - By The Dark Of Light (2002)
The debut album from this US musician.
Shaun Guerin plays every instruments here. That means drums, bass, guitars, synths and vocals.
This much sought after studio and live musician released two albums before passing on 2003 after completing his second and final album. An archives album was released the year after.
I am reviewing this and the second album this autumn....
..... Starting with this album.
The music on this almost one hour long album is symphonic prog. That means US symphonic prog.
There are some melodic songs here intertwined with some instrumental pieces where Shaun showed what he could do on his instruments. It also showcased him as a composer.
Genesis is an obvious influence on his material. But there is also some more cinematic pieces here.
The songs are good and so is the more instrumental pieces. Shaun Guerin was indeed a good musician and a good composer.
This good album proves how good he was.
