Review
Once in a while we progfriends come across the ultimative artist´s, these artist´s that just keep on going, always with several project´s in their agenda and they always seem like they have endless inspiration sources, to name a few of that very special branch of musicians, in no particular order: Mike Portnoy / Roine Stolt / Steven Wilson / Neal Morse...and now also Dutch multi musician: Christiaan Bruin. As with the other mentioned musicians and omnipresent talent´s, Christiaan has been involved in his and other´s project over the years, let me name some: Sky Architect / Nine Stones Close/ Mayra Orchestra / 4-5 "solo" albums under the moniker: Chris and now: Christiaan Bruins´Inventions..with this first installment entitled: "Meta" . According to the newsletter : " Inventions is a series of video´s and songs by Christiaan, in which he explains the creative process of composing music and lyrics. He does that while recording a new song every two weeks. Series 1 started Autumn 2016 during which Christiaan composed 10 songs, which were shared with his followers on patreon.com.inventions." This outing contains those songs..plus 4 bonus tracks that were previously available ONLY to the patrons.

I love this album, which have had many spins in my study, the repeated spins also opened new musical corridors along the way. So a most certain item for my private collection!!

I love the music and the narrative intervals/vignettes during most of the song intro´s. I was originally introduced to Christiaan..via his 4-5 solo outings under the name: Chris and they are very worth every progfan´s attention !! Also I recommend you listen to: Sky Architect.

This album is near perfect..I heard hints and winks to later ELO, Beatles briefly here and there, Mew anyone? and of course I mostly heard the genius of Christaan!! So what´s not to like, I ask??!! Well, If you liked some of the above sentences and nod´s, then you MUST hear this album.

Skip lunch, go buy this great outing..why dont you?!!

Did I mention Christiaan Bruin is not only a multi musician: Sings,plays drums, keyboards, bass, percussion and he composes and write lyrics!! P.s. Just dont expect thundering drums, heavy massive chords and/or growling !! Just beautiful, brilliant symphonic prog music that will make you smile with joy !!

Appendix: The cover is a cardboard gatefold..with minimum info, but nice frontcover art, a sort of Escher homage with a twist !

That's what they say about us...

SoniaMota150

All bands/artists and all moozik aficionados, if you have not joined Planet Of Prog on their fb page yet you might want to join them here too. They are unbiased, very honest sharing the music from the greats to the indie starting artists and what I love the most about them, there is no negativity (you'll not find any pompous selfrightous know it all full of know better and how sermons on their reviews) no matter who you are, all their reviews the bands are treated with utmost dignity even if the review is not most favorable, that review will be honest, not pompous and most in awe respectful of the artist's efforts. I love them, love this site. Join if you want to,I like them a lot!
