3 stars Eidolon - a band from France who manage to create s special atmosphere with this first release. The album is named Dreamland from 2009, at is in my opinion an album more towards spacey/psychedlic prog , then a traditional symphonic band as is said in the description. The music is quite intristing , the instrumental passages are well played and well composed, remind me of Pink Floyd or even Nektar or Eloy in places, balanced music, mid tempo most of the time. After some spins I found this album to be enough intristing in this present scene of progressive music, but I can't say I was really impressed but this first release. A good album that desearve 3 stars, but fails to grab me all the way, some of the parts are to slow and to moody and atmospheric for my taste, I was expected more vein in some pieces. Anyway some of the keybords played by Thomas Nguyen in for ex Part Four - Reflexum: Les Réminiscences Drapées Du Passé, superb playing. So, overall the album IMO is a solid 3 stars, but not really something very essential in modern prog music, anyway if you like this kind of music, worth some spins. 3 stars for sure.
