Editorial Reviews

''In December 2001, I had already started planning my second solo CD Hubi Meisel - ''EmOcean'', which should become much more progressive again. The album title ''EmOcean'' suggested itself to me all of a sudden, and I immediately saw pictures of an enchanting underwater world in my mind. It was quite clear that it would become a concept album - inspired by nothing but my dreams. Before writing the concept story and lyrics for ''EmOcean'', I spent quite some time making investigations about Atlantis, the Sargasso Sea, the Bermuda Triangle and Greek Mythology''. Avalon. 2004.

Hubi Meisel is mostly known for his stint with German prog metal band Dreamscape. He sang on their second album Very in 1999. He also appeared in Italian symphonic prog band Maeve of Connacht in their 2001 album which I haven't heard yet. Afterwards he decided to go solo and released his debut album CUT where he paid tribute to the 80's covering classics. Finally he returned to his prog roots and released his first concept album EmOcean with amazing guest musicians helping him out. The subject themes vary from Atlantis to the Bermuda Triangle as well Greek Mythology and the whole album has a very complete feel to it. It's like one huge track divided into 12 songs plus the bonus material.
This is a great prog metal album inspired by nothing but Hubi Meisel's dreams. I haven't deciphered the plot yet because I really dig the music so much that I haven't been able to get to the concept yet. Being primarily a solo album, Meisel's vocals are understandably the centrepiece of most of the songs, yet the songwriting leaves a lot of room for other instruments to make themselves felt. Hubi Meisel wrote the lyrics and vocal melodies only on EmOcean, the music itself was composed by French keyboardist Vivien Lalu of the band Shadrane. Therefore the general flow of the music is mainly keyboard and piano driven but that doesn't mean there's no room for guitars and bass. With former Lemur Voice and current Sun Caged guitarist Marcel Coenen playing, it is quite hard to imagine a prog album where his distinctive rhythm work and tasteful solos do not stand out. On drums is Mind's Eye drummer Daniel Flores and the bass player is another French guy I'm unfamiliar with, Jean B. Affonco.
I really like Lalu's approach writing-wise.

Ok. First, I must say that I'm not very good to review CD's. I never really did that before but well, I'll try to do my best, here, because I really think "EmOcean" deserves to be discovered and appreciated by as many people as possible. It's one of the most wonderful prog. CD's I have in my collection and I sincerely hope that my comments will be useful to you...
I heard about this CD for the first time (and bought it) about one month ago and what I can say about it is that I really got impressed by the amount of work that was invested in this album ! It's a FANTASTIC album !!!!!! My favourite one, in fact ! I would qualify it in one word: magical.
The concept idea is very deep, complex, meaningful, beautiful and interesting. It's related to "water worlds", "the above" and much more ! I let you discover it - this huge and marvellous story - by yourselves, as it really worth !!! It's like a whole big story that continues itself through the songs...This is like a dream...and you'd only wish to be there...If you close your eyes, you really can "feel", "see" even "smell" everything that happens in the album. You "fly" in that world...like in a fantastic movie...That's M-A-G-I-C !!!
This perfect piece of work is very special, original, mystical, spiritual even relaxing, in some way ! This is the kind of album that makes your skin shivers to every note, every line, every sound. Also, the lyrics are so well written, the words so well chosen, this only adds more strength to the album because you can "see" clear images of every song in your mind...Hubi Meisel has such a way to describe things ! It's very easy to picture everything here...
Of course, I like Hubi Meisel's voice very very much too !!!
