4.0 out of 5 stars One of a very few really GOOD new prog acts February 23, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Regaining my love of music after a 10-year hibernation, I've spent the last 18 months familiarizing myself with a whole bunch of bands losely describedas "progressive". I've gotten acquainted with the Flower Kings, Under the Sun, Spock's Beard, Transatlantic, Dream Theater, Arena, Mostly Autumn, Underground Railroad, Ange, Pendragon, Symphony X, Porcupine Tree, Tempano, IQ, White Willow, Shadow Gallery, Cairo, Glass Hammer, Pallas. Most were mediocre, and there's a LOT of rehashing going on in the genre (by the way, so-called "prog metal" is not "progressive" in the sense that most prog rock fans use).
But now I can add Jadis!
To this point, only a very few bands (Spock's Beard/Transatlantic, UTS, and Mostly Autumn) had distinguished themselves - even though they sound nothing like each other. Jadis manage to stand out from the crowd, too - to make a fresh contribution.

Their songs are accessible, positive, and well orchestrated. Of course, another way to say the music is "accessible" is to say that "it doesn't grow on you". So if you consider obscurity an essential part of "progressive music" you may get bored quickly...
The musicanship is good, with special kudos to drummer Stephen Christey. The album is very well produced, and the band's sound is crisp, assertive and upbeat.
While sticking to a format of relatively short songs (6-7 min.), Jadis remain true to the "progressive spirit" with this collection of genuinely original, energetic and rewarding music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neo-prog at its best June 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you are a neo-progressive fan, then Jadis is a band you MUST own. The focal point of this band is Gary Chandler (vocals & guitar). Emotion, passion and heart-felt harmonies are at there best here. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting to the limit December 4, 1999
Format:Audio CD
If you can afford and hour to close your eyes, put your headphones on and with the undivided attention listen to the Jadis' spectacular vision created in the realm of the sound, this seemingly contradictory invitation would bring you back as a refreshed and renewed person. Jadis gives you the most uplifting sound possible, if you happen to have any emotions as you listen to them, they will be recorded like during the psychotherapeutic session, your imagination and awareness would get expanded beyond any anticipation. And on top of all this Jadis is a great music. Takes you not only beyond the waters but also beyond the time. You would be touched. No doubt.
