The Way (CD)
ANIMA MUNDI is a bunch of musicians from Cuba, who have chosen, at the end of the Nineties, to play symphonic Progressive rock music. It's certainly not the easiest place in the world to create and play this kind of music, so "Jagannath Orbit" in itself deserves attention: the band had to be really patient and brave to have a chance to release this second album. But even if this album was coming from England or Japan, you'd have seen no difference at all: it's just a brilliant symphonic rock, ambitious, played with passion, with a good production. English lyrics (and some guitar parts) reveal a certain YES influence, together with the major masters of the Seventies. The main thing about ANIMA MUNDI is the absolute beauty of its melodies, from the first to the last second, coupled with a great sense of rhythm. You'll find of course plenty of gorgeous and bombastic keyboards parts, floating sounds and soli, lyrical guitar parts, a good singer, other instruments such as recorders, bagpipes, clarinet, didgeridoo... Knowing all this, the third album by the band has been eagerly awaited. And the least we can say is that "The Way" (2010) goes well beyond all expectations ! This bright piece of work is a feast for every symphonic Progressive rock alumni. Here are four long suites, clocking between 8 and 26 minutes. Besides the well-integrated YES or GENESIS influences, it seems THE FLOWER KINGS' nordic flavours happen to reach the carribean shores as well. If we were to talk about the singer's tone, associated with that warm guitar sound, we may find some resemblances with Mario MILLO (SEBASTIAN HARDIE): another mark of high quality ! That music is constantly inspired, lively, and coming straight from the heart: what else to ask for ?
