4.0 out of 5 stars Best Jadis effort to date June 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is, in my opinion, the best Jadis album. All I can say is that the songs are very well structured; the melodic guitar solos are my favorites, as are the pads sounds. Vocals are very melodic-oriented as in the other albums, and maybe tends to be somewhat like AOR commercial rock as usual, something that can turn people out of Jadis in first listening.
But I would at least listen to this album , there are tons of melodies, the songs are much better than in the other albums, so much that none of the songs makes me skip it. It took me some listening to get used to it, since I'm more used to IQ vocals, which are also more like Jon Anderson. Jadis vocalist reminds me more to Steve Vai's Firegarden album, which is a masterpiece of progressive rock (yeah, I said progressive, get that one too!).
My personal favorites are the 4 first tracks, then the title track which is really good with the flute being a main instrument, a really beautiful piece of music. The last 2 tracks aren't bad, they fit perfectly in the album. Overall conclusion: if you liked Jadis before with the other albums, then get this one, it won't disappoint you. If you liked this album, another addition would be "Dark Matter" by IQ and maybe previous Jadis works. I personally liked the first Jadis album too. Much longer and half instrumental is Steve Vai - Firegarden, remember that one!

4.0 out of 5 stars More Than Meets the Ear... May 2, 2013

When I heard "The Beginning and the End" , I was surprised I had never been made aware of this band! Enjoyed most of the songs on this album. Will add to my list of Prog bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice album September 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I recently got turned on to Jadis from listening to my IQ channel on Pandora (keyboardist Martin Orford from IQ is in Jadis). I now have 4 CD's by them and I really enjoy their stuff. This CD is very strong from the beginning of track 1 and goes through to track 6 with nice catchy guitar riffs (especially track 2 "Hiding In The Corner"), laid back but strong vocals and tasteful flowing keyboards. Then comes track 7 clocking in at almost 10 minutes - "Holding Your Breath", this is a great instrumental with a lot of depth and hints at many of the bands that these guys cut their teeth on. I hear sounds from many of the 'old' prog masters as well as more main-stream rockers with a little pop thrown in. It even does a Tangerine Dream style thing in the bridge at 5:48. I find the guitar playing by front man Gary Chandler to be smooth with overall good tone and creativity, add that to the rest of the band and this is an enjoyable 'Light' Prog CD. I for one am glad I came across them!
