4 stars Excelent second album by this belgian band, Machiavel. Jester is from 1977 and is a big improvement over the first, maybe because they have now a propper vocalist, Mario Guccio. The music is clearly inspired by Genesis (Trick or Wind and wuthering era) with very strong key arrangements, specially on synthesizers and mellotron. For me Jester is a very good album with a lot to offer, very underrated, amond the best from Belgium and why not from the late'70's. The album has diffrent kind of moods, beggins with a mid tempo piece Wisdom, with great guitar solo and fantastic keybord combinations, and goes on with a slow one Moments and then the core of the album wich is the best, the middle pieces - In the reign of queen pollution, Jester and Mister street fair . The best pieces are ; Wisdom, title track Jester with great vocals and smooth arragements and Mister street fair , the rest are also very enjoyble. The music of Machiavel is not very complicated, sometimes is something between Genesis but less symphonic and Supertamp, but for sure needs attention. So a big album for me, 4 stars without hestitation, among the most enjoyble albums i have in my collection.
