Light biography
Dutch quartet LIGHT was formed in 1986 by composer and guitarist Mario Driessen, when he decided that his current band project Fallus Rex perhaps wasn't operating under the ideal moniker. For the next few years various incarnations of Light recorded a handful or so of demoes. Unearthing band members that could stick around was their main challenge. Other than the keyboard player that is, as Jeroen Kregting joined in 1987 and stayed put. But five more years would go by before the rhythm section was in place, in the shape of Randy van Dijk (bass) and Jack van Dijk (drums).

Light hit the studio in 1994 after being signed by Dutch label SI Music. The end result was the band's one and only full length production, Light, released in 1995. The band fell apart shortly after, caught up in the turmoil when their label SI MUsic went bankrupt. Yhey never disbanded officially however, and later incarnations of the band were active until 2002 as a live unit.

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Light from Holland (not to be confused with other countless bands with same name) was formed around 1985-86 and had one single album released at excellent dutch label SI Music in 1995 selftitled. Not very inspired when they've choose their name both band and album, but the music is truly great with many memorable passages. Musicaly they fit with one leg in neo prog with other in symphonic prog, but overall with a more edgy sound then usual neo prog bands from the early to mid '90's, similar with another dutch band from that period named Bagheera, or with italians Aufklarung. Vocal lines are more then decent, fiting very well into this type of music, the instrumental parts are the cherry on the cake, really great passages. Complicated type of neo prog with lots of changes in tempo, with lenghty pieces one of them clocking around 21 min named Dreams is really something worth to hear, another highlights are opening Following Eyes, Elephants on Tightrope and the instrumental one. All in all forgotten and unkown band, this only album is more then ok with nice inventive arrangements and tight musicianship all over. They disbanded (but never officialy) few years after the release and gone into oblivion after SI Music went bankrupt around that period. To me a very nice dicovery 8 years ago, still love them great deal after all these years.4 stars for sure, worthy obscurity from dutch prog school. Very nice art work.

Light Neo-Prog

Review by toroddfuglesteg

4 stars A one off Dutch neo prog band. Light is not be confused with another Dutch band and countless other bands with the same name. This Light is displaying neo prog on the borderline to symph prog. Or rather, pretty much into the symph prog terrain to be honest. There is a lot of references to US symph prog bands like Spock's Beard in their music. But the sound is pretty much 1995 and not the best. But this album still kicks like an angry horse.

The music very big and grandious. The melodies very complex at times. Not everything here is fantastic, but most of this album is great with some great musicianship and melodies. The vocals is a bit of a downer. But the rest is great. The best song here is the twenty two minutes long opus Dreams. This is an album I really like and rate highly.

4 stars

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
