It is always with great pleasure that we welcome a new Syndone album, punctual and faithful to its immutable rule of one release every two years. A happiness tinged with a slight anxious impatience. Because, if Syndone has got us used to very high quality records, positioning the band among the best progressive music bands of today, its last album, "Eros & Thanatos", while remaining very good, seemed a little less inspired and mastered than usual, making us fear that the so well oiled mechanics suddenly seized up.

The first title, 'Medea', immediately takes care to silence our worries. This instrumental piece, which above all allows the musicians to introduce themselves, each in turn expressing themselves in a short solo passage, mixes in a fast and seductive melody electric instruments and symphonic orchestra, very present throughout the album, passing with ease from a romantic piano to a syncopated jazz-rock.

The impression of sometimes messy transitions and somewhat blurred guidelines left by "Eros & Thanatos" is totally dissipated on "Mysoginia", the strength of this new album residing in a solid structuring and a great homogeneity of tone. Homogeneity does not mean linearity, far from it. Syndone remains faithful to its style made of breaks, numerous and sudden changes of tempo, melodies with a contrasted signature. The jazzy sonorities ('Red Shoes', '12 Minuti') blend well with the classical ('Caterina', 'Amalia') or more rock ('Women', which ELP would not have disavowed) atmospheres, the most poignant melancholy ('Caterina') rubs shoulders with the most unbridled fantasy ('12 Minuti') whose music and theatrical interpretation of Riccardo Ruggeri evoke Queen and the immense Freddie Mercury) or the disturbing strangeness of a 'Mysoginia' deploying its dramatic atmosphere without any real musical theme.

Syndone's art lies in the fluidity and spontaneity of his melodies with their skillful transitions. Everything is wonderfully interwoven in an admirable limpidity at the service of luminous themes. All the titles of "Mysoginia" are more successful one than the other but, if we had to mention only one, it would certainly be 'Caterina' whose construction and the sadness of the theme confine to the masterpiece.

Throughout, "Mysoginia" exudes a vaporous poetry, a delicacy imbued with mystery, an old-fashioned charm that grips the listener's soul. The beauty of the melodies, the incessant variations and the sensitivity of the performers finish to bewitch the listener for good.

RANESTRANE: A Space Odyssey Part.3 : Starchild (2018)
PROGRESSIVE ROCK - Between Instrumental Progressive and neo-progressive Rock, "Starchild" lacks only a touch of madness to propel us higher in the stars.
GRETA VAN FLEET: Anthem Of The Peaceful Army (2018)
HARD ROCK - Still inspired by Led Zeppelin, "Anthem Of The Peaceful Army" stands out from the legendary band and offers a collection of homogeneous, efficient tracks.
