4 stars Finaly I got the chance to listen carefuly to Globalys music in past week or so. Got the CD this year , I was very glad because was released in a small amount of copies more then 10 years ago and quite hard to find today, so here we go..This belgian band really surprising me big time, I never thought that they will sound so good on this demo release how they call it or 03 . 02 . 01. The aalbum was issued in february 2001 as a demo with only 4 pieces, long ones with eleaborated and intresting passages. At first and second spin I was amazed to see that this is indeed a demo, because the band sounds so tight and inventive like they were playing for years. Eclectic side of progressive rock with clear influences from symphonic prog and aswell canterbury, like when combine Caravan with Genesis and Camel most of the time but with originality on every piece. Warm and elaborated mucis with nice passages, keybords and guitar have an important role here. What is shocking to me is that they sound very much like in the glory days of prog, like this album was released in the mid '70's, only the year of release betrays this fact that is not a '70 band, intresting and fascinating in same time. All 4 pieces are very good, complex and well performed with a plus on Meeting, very nice atmosphere and musicianship. Also something to mention is that the keyboard player Bertrand Vanvarembergh will find him later on on belgium neo prog band Madelgaire. So to end now, this is one of the most unknown and undiscoverd progressive rock beautys from Belgium, recommended for sure to everyone intrested to discover lesser known bands but with big potential right from the start. 4 stars easy, pleasent and enjoyble from start to finish.
