4 stars Describing the music of Cerebus Effect is difficult and easy at the same time. Just look at the cover by The Bosch and put it in music. They resemble to themselves and derivatives such as Britton's Deluge Grander. Not sure if they sound like Canterburians, just a few bits in some tracks, if anything to their later jazzier works in late 70's and 80's. The common elements are dynamism, variety, complexity. It goes beyond Soft Machine, or King Crimson. The improvisational air takes them closer to jazz fusion. Mahavishnu? JL Ponty? Anyway, whether you find it resemblance to anyone or not, it is clear that the music is extremely complex, and it requires a considerable musical background and maybe a taste for complexity and adventure. There are few concessions to the audience, no melodies here. It does not come as far as experimental, anyone can listen to it, and you only have to be ready to be shocked by the stream of music that will splash on you. The more accessible tracks are Of Mortal Constraints, like Operation Midnight Climax and the opening and closing themes, Y and W.
