3 stars Fanatic saw the light in 2003 and is the sixth album from this discrete band named Jadis. I do consider that Jadis was from the beggining of their career in the shadow of big names in neo prog, but aswell they revive the neo sound in the '90's with at least 2 great abums in the first half of that decade that every neo fan must own, More then meets the eye and Across the water. Fanatic don't bring anything new in this field or in Jadis sound, is a good album with moderated great passages and with some great guitar works overall, but nothing special about it. Definetly better then Understand in my wiev with better parts and with more balls on every piece, seams that they woke up little bit from the acalmy that sourand them around Understand album. I think Jadis offered the best they got on first two albums and then after Across the water they only try to imitated the music from that albums, creating good but totaly unintresting type of neo prog. Even on every album the warm voice and great guitar chops of Gary Chandler keeps tha band on surface aswell contributing a lot Martin Orford on keyboards, they look like they run out of steam in this period. The opening track is ok, the title track is ok , but some passages are little forced to my ears, they try to much to come with some valid music and this is the best they got in that period. 3 stars again, some more catchy parts as on Understand but far from first two albums in greatness.
