JC has done a ton of great stuff, but having given this a spin a couple of times I would say this has to be his best so far. The sound has been updated somewhat - but no fear all the great keyboards and soaring harmonies are still in abundance. Parts of it even hark back to his old band Jasper Wrath especially parts of the fantastic track Somewhere Beyond the Sun. Life 101 and 4:17 (California) are immediate faves. French (kinda trancy feel)and Kali Allah (reprise) almost have an Ozrics leaning.

A very strong release & one I prefer over the 'Tamorok' CD from a few years back (although that was a strong album in itself). This is nice collection,taking in most aspects of JC's varied career so far. The 2 Arcangel re-workings,'Wanted: Dead Or Alive' & 'King Of The Mountain' are great aswell. 'Spirit Of The Four Winds' & 'Kalli Allah' are my standouts so far, but there are alot of very strong tracks on this one. An album I didn't know was in the pipeline and a VERY nice surprise indeed.

Always at the border of progressive and the aor, this new album is excellent, fills of environments and so particular atmospheres. Highly recommended for the fans of AOR and prog.

From: Rycheage Date: April 30, 2006 at 18:28
Great album that borders AOR and Prog like Faust said. My standouts are "Tears Of America", "Promise You Heaven" and "Alli Allah". Great album that deserves a spin in your CD player. Nice surprise indeed...

****************************Jeff nos deleita con una nueva producción, titulada “Mysterium”la cual en este comentario develaremos un poco el “misterio” que hay detrás de la placa.Cannata regresa con un album mucho mejor que su anterior “Tamorock” en el cual a mi gusto viene un poco mas potente,lógicamente dentro del estilo AOR que abarca este majestuoso artista.Pueden encontrar muchas suaves melodías, coros armónicos, pero por ejemplo en la primera canción“Spirit of the tour winds” y “Wanted:

dead or alive”, vamos a encontrar varios pasajes con guitarras mas al frente, casi rozando a un hard rock bien de los ochentas. También vamos a poder apreciar una faceta progresiva en :”Somewhere beyond the sun” en el cual van a poder disfrutar de la melódica voz de Jeff combinada con bases, guitarras y poco de lisérgia en sus casi nueve minutos de canción. Por momentos la voz de Cannata me recuerda a la de Kip Winger,

y dejando de lado la comparación, es una forma de guiarlos y dejarles en claro que Jeff posee un excelente timbre de voz, asi como muy buen gusto para los arreglos musicales, y se ve reflejado claramente en “Mysterium” donde lo podría acomodar mejor con bandas como Styx o Yes en su faceta mas sinfónica del redondo. Aparte de que me encuentro con un cd que realmente tenia curiosidad y deseo de escuchar, aparte viene con un arte de presentación en cajita de cartón y

además de un diseño de tapa e interior muy cool (exquisito). “Mysterium” supera todas mis expectativas como album actual; ahora me pregunto, porque son 13 temas en el album? Cabala o superstición? Por ahora, un mysterium... ****************************Lucas H Gordon www.myspace.com/lucasgordon

It s great when i listen this album kansas come to my mind its elegant,very fine band not aor ,now seems more prog or symphonic,all the tracks are good,the voice is clean ,and instruments performed verywell avoiding the excess of virtuosism the music sounds like in special space is fresh and relaxing dont boring i prefer this album than before albums.,cause its more original hey mr lancelot listen this and put your comments in english and spanish and hello emiric in hers birthday from the fans.

Hay que darle sus buenas escuchas.. Buen ProgAOR, pensé que iba ser muy progre pero no lo es tanto pero siempre con esa tendencia("Somewhere Beyond the Sun" "Book of Ages" y "French" no me van). "Wanted - Dead or Alive"(Mi Favorita) "417 (California)" "Reason to Live" y "Tears of America"(muy buena pero con un final muy progre) las mejores a mi juicio. Hubiera preferido solo 10 temas(los mejores). 8/10
