"Fanatic" is the fifth studio album from UK prog-rockers JADIS, and it may well be the band's most mature & well-crafted work to date. While far from a household name in America, Jadis should be well-known to anyone who has followed the progressive rock revival movement through the 80's and 90's (and up until today.) Jadis had their beginnings in the UK prog scene of the 80's, alongside bands such as Pendragon, Marillion, IQ, and 12th Night; but over five impressive studio albums, and with a growing repuatation as a "must see" live band, Jadis have developed into a distintive musical outfit that does not fit easily into any one "movement". Jadis, to my ears at least, is what I would call a modern progressive rock band - with the emphasis on "modern" & "rock". Most of the band's songs are in the 5, 6, or 7 minute range (so those who demand 15 minute epics may feel more comfortable with other latter-day prog acts, such as Pendargon or Cairo.) But be aware that Jadis have crafted an unusual compositional style which is quite adventerous, while somehow remaining concise & accessible. While one can sometimes hear the obvious influences of prog bands such as Camel, Pink Floyd, and early-Genesis in the band's music, attentive listeners will also notice hints of more modern influences floating around (U2, Tears For Fears, Crowded House.) If there is a key to Jadis' artistic success, it would have to lie with the group's multi-talented founder, Gary Chandler (guitarist, lead vocalist, composer, lyricist.) Chandler sings with a warm, thick, resonant mid-range vocal tone - think John Wetton/Greg Lake with a little more "ooomph"! And what can I say about Chandler's guitar work???Read more ›

I got a sampler with a Jadis tune on it and quickly ordered this disc. Great travel music. It really reminds me of Trevor Rabin era Yes and the first Asia. Well crafted songs, good vocals and a great rhthym section. The guitarist has a lot of talent. Production is tight and could use a little space to open up the sound, however, I'm glad I picked this up. A similar sounding disc is Conspiracy ~ The Unknown.
Stand out tracks:
a) I Never Noticed
b) The Great Outside
c) Fanatic (Instrumental)
Peace............

Unacquainted with Jadis (or IQ...I was not listening to prog in the eighties), I purchased Fanatic on an impulse. What a great impulse! This album will astonish you. The pure musical sensibility of the band shines. Haunting melodies, firm handling of arrangements and zero "filler." The album flies directly in the face of pop music today, yet wisely nods to well-crafted songs of past pop.
If you are considering an excursion into what could be a listening "never-come-back" experience, try on this bright, yet pensive, intelligent album.

However, this is an excellent album. The recommendations I received about Jadis led me to believe their sound would be a little more "proggy." The presence of Orford and Jowitt on here had me thinking IQ or Arena.
After a couple of listens, I put the CD away and thought maybe I'd made a mistake.
But I recently picked it up again, gave it a few more listens and I'll say that there isn't a bad selection on the CD.
Gary Chandler's guitar playing is largely from the "less is more" school and his vocals have the unprocessed sound of a demo. This combines to give the CD a bit of a live feel. It's good, well-crafted rock music with a touch of prog here and there.

I had high hopes for this, reading the reviews. With the line-up and being a monster IQ fan I was sure I could not go wrong.

Wrong I went. This is simply very boring. I have been through it a solid 4 times and find little to smile about. Very average singing (low on melodies), weak lyrics, and just downright cheesey. It sounds like an 80's band that is trying to revive prog music and confused as how to progress.

I did pick up more than meets the eye and was far more impressed with the writing on that one.
