YES Magnification

Album · 2001 · Jazz Related Rock

Very good! I was curious about the most recent albums of Yes, because I've only listened to their ultra classic Fragile - one of my favorite albums of all time. Magnification is a truly "symphonic" album: the keyboards were been replaced by real orchestration, conducted by Larry Groupë with maestry. This gave a more organic feel to this album, a very positive achievement in my opinion. This album have many highlights: Spirit of Survival (good lyrics), Magnification, Don't Go (nice lyrics too), Give Love Each Day, the epics Dreamtime and my favorite, In The Presence Of. The short songs are interesting too, there's no filler in this album! I recommend Magnification to all the fans of symphonic prog.

EDO Canardière

EP · 2013 · Jazz Related Rock

Canardière is the third EP of the canadian trio EDO. This is, in fact, a 16 minute long composition divided in eight segments. The music is an original mix of organic instrumentation with keyboards based in chiptune music – in other words, music inspired by old video games soundtracks (think about the 8-bits/16-bits era of videogames consoles). There's even a track (6e avenue) that reminds the songs of the “boss battles”! Sorry, folks, I think that only the gamers will understand this!

Ok, but the music is actually good? Yes, it is! Very groovy, almost dancing sometimes, with good use of bass and drums (the percussion is very present through the album), and many little details which the listener will only notice after some spins. This EP is avaliable at Edo's Bandcamp through the name-your-price system (including zero), so what are you waiting for? Get your copy and have some fun! Recommendded for fans of jazz rock who don't care about the use of electronics.
