Mystery was formed in 1986 by Michel St-Pere in the Montreal region. Originally created as a studio project, it would take nearly four years before a stable line-up takes form.

During the same time, Studio illusion is created, a recording studio owned ... Read more in Amazon's Mystery Store

Editorial Reviews

The new album contains 69 minutes of brand new mysterious progressive rock including the 22 minutes suite Through Different Eyes. Mystery is known for its melodic progressive rock music and their last album Beneath the Veil of Winter s Face was voted progressive rock album of the year (2007) i many progressive rock medias making the album one of the best selling release on the Unicorn Digital catalogue. The breaktrough came for Mystery when singer Benoit David was asked to join legendary Progressive Rock band YES as their new lead singer, providing Mystery with an army of new fans worldwide. For One Among the Living, Mystery is joined by Daryl Stuermer (Genesis Phil Collins), Oliver Wakeman (Yes, The Strawbs,), John Jowitt (Frost, IQ, Arena), Antoine Fafard (Spaced Out), Claire Vezina and Richard Lanthier. The new CD will be released as a digipak with a 28 page booklet. After the success of the 2007 release Beneath the Veil of Winter s Face, and last year release of the 10th anniversary edition of Destiny? MYSTERY is back with their 6th studio album

5.0 out of 5 stars One Among The Best July 21, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Over and over again I read reviews which compare bands to the great original progressive bands like Styx, Nectar, Camel, Genesis, and Rush. In many cases these bands show some signs of greatness; however their efforts are far from the sounds being generated in the mid 70s when AOR was being played on the radio. Mystery has done it!! This album as well as Beneath the Veil of Winter's Face are truly compelling pieces similar to old time big band rock-n-roll. If you are a teen of the 70's asking; "What's happened to music today?" Take a listen to Mystery. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Fine Album July 31, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Michel St. Pere has done it again. This is mature progressive art rock with accessible melodies, understandable lyrics and a great collaboration with Benoit David's vocal chops. Monsieur St. Pere is the creative genius behind Mystery buy he as assembled quite a team of musicians to help him realize his vision. My first exposure to Mystery was Beneath the Veil and I was blown away by the music, melodies and arrangements in this newly discovered progressive/art rock band. One Among the Living has a similar somber tone that emphasizes the difficulty of the human condition and the sadness of our lack of understanding of the "Mystery" of it all. Pere's vision is somewhat somber and his music crosses into blues and metal at times but the general assessment of his music would be progressive rock in an almost classic idiomatic expression of the genre. There are soaring melodies, St. Pere's signature guitar riffs and virtuosity and beautiful vocals from Benoit David and these two artists stand out while a stalwart band of expert musicians support them with tasteful keyboard work, mostly organ, strings and choir washes and an occasional synth lead but mostly this is a guitar band. The drums and bass are stellar and more similar to metal band or Dream Theatre sounding than, say Chris Squire's YES style. I was not as blown away by this new release because I am now familiar with their approach and sound but I have to say this was a solid followup to Beneath the Veil and I have enjoyed it through several listenings. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talent is not a Mystery June 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album follows on the heels ( 3 years ) of Beneath the Veil of Winters Face. Though , not as easily as accessable as BTVOWF , One Among The Living is an excellant album by a band hitting its stride . Listener will be rewarded with repeated listenings . Melodic yet muscular . Great guitars and intelligent lyrics highlight this album . Benoit David is more involved with this album and makes it all the better for it . Highly recommended .

5.0 out of 5 stars Songs + Chops = 5 Stars February 16, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Yes, having Daryl Stuermer, Oliver Wakeman and John Jowitt on board gives this one some extra firepower. But the songs are also well-written...not a single "groaner" in the bunch.

Far too often, technically proficient prog musicians head for the studio with good intentions and hot licks, but they forget to bring the tunes. Or the flip side...they have a handful of good tunes that would probably sound better recorded by someone else.

That's not the case with "One Among The Living"...it's 67 minutes of tight, tuneful prog with all of the "classic prog" touchstones we've come to know and love...Genesis, Yes, etc.

By now, you're probably familiar with the fact that Benoît David is fronting the current touring lineup of Yes (which also includes Oliver Wakeman). That really has no significance in relation to this project, so I mention it in passing as a point of interest and nothing more.

As a guitarist myself, I always tend to look for the guitars on a prog album, and if you're the same, you won't be disappointed. There are many flourishes a la the "Seconds Out / Wind & Withering" era of Genesis...crunchy rhythm guitars and keyboard swirls forming a bed for the solos...and the solos are kept tasteful. The songs are never a mere "launching pad" for showboating.

I will admit that I had read the reviews on this one...not just on Amazon, either...and approached my first listen with caution, thinking "No...it can't be that good." And in reality, it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Releases of 2010 August 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Canadian progressive rock band Mystery returns in 2010 with a new album, One Among The Living. It's been about three years since their last excellent album, Beneath The Veil Of Winter's Face, which was the first to feature lead vocals by Benoit David. During the three years the band has re-issued their third album called Destiny?, which was originally released in 1998. Also Benoit David became the replacement touring (so far) singer for the band Yes.
One Among The Living is a 9 track album with reoccurring themes within each track yet each track could stand on it's own. I have listened to this album many many times and find each time to be a better experience. I often found myself humming some tracks when I am doing my everyday civilities beyond the computer.

I feel this album needs to be heard in full before setting up any highlights but the opening track "Among The Living" a minute plus synth and vocal ballad that segues into "Wolf" which contains some of the best vocal work of Benoit starting around the minute mark. I feel that this song should be the lead single off the album due to the catchy memorable vibe I get each time I hear it.

"Between Love And Hate" starts off with some acoustic guitar backing the vocals. By the time it gets to the chorus, you'll hear another reason to get into this band, especially with this album. I feel this could be another single, since it hook me in. Mostly due to it's melodic guitar and lush keyboards sounds. It's a very accessible song that will attract non-prog fans.

"Till The Truth Comes Out" s a very epic symphonic sounding track that clocks in under the 10 minute mark. I swear it feels shorter, which is a compliment to the band`s composing skills.

For those who have commented that Mystery is a Yes clone (even if that were a bad thing), just because the vocalist did a stint with Yes: open your ears. Read more
