MIDAS (Japon)
Eternal Voyage
 

MIDAS and its singer-violinist Eigo UTOH perform a melodic and elaborated symphonic Progressive rock, typical of the prestigious Japanese School of the Eighties. "Beyond The Clear Air" (1988) is often regarded as one of the landmarks of the genre. Included here are four long tracks with some energic rhythms, evoking CURVED AIR or OUTER LIMITS, peaceful and atmospheric PAGEANT-styled ballads with flying violin chords and precious guitar solos. Various styles are showcased here, from Rock In Opposition to folk-rock, not to mention neo Progressive, or even heavy-metal. This major opus has been jointly reissued by the Musea and Poseidon labels, with a bonus-track, called "Green Forest". Dissolved after this sole album, MIDAS reformed during the Nineties, and continues to publish albums since: "II" in 1996, "Third Operation" in 1999, "International Popular Album" in 2000... As the name implies, "Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Concert And Early Rare Tracks" presents on one CD a performance captured October 19th 2008 in Osaka, during the band's celebration of its quarter of a century, as well as four unreleased tracks recorded between 1983 and 1987. Not to be missed !

MIDAS et son chanteur-violoniste Eigo UTOH nous proposent un rock Progresssif symphonique, mélodieux et élaboré, typique de la prestigieuse Ecole Japonaise des années quatre-vingts. A ce titre, "Beyond The Clear Air" (1988) est généralement considéré comme l'une des pierres angulaires du genre. On y retrouve quatre longues compositions aux rythmes énergiques, rappelant CURVED AIR ou OUTER LIMITS, ainsi que des ballades paisibles et atmosphériques à la PAGEANT, avec un violon virevoltant et de précieux soli de guitare. De nombreux styles musicaux sont ici abordés, du Rock In Opposition au folk-rock, sans oublier le neo Progressif, voire le heavy-metal. Cet opus majeur a été réédité conjointement par les labels Musea et Poseidon, agrémenté d'un titre bonus, intitulé "Green Forest". Dissous après cette unique oeuvre, MIDAS se reforme dans les Nineties et continue de publier des albums depuis: "II" en 1996, "Third Operation" en 1999, "International Popular Album" en 2000... Comme son nom l'indique, "Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Concert And Early Rare Tracks" reprend sur le même disque une performance scénique capturée le 19 octobre 2008 à Osaka, l'occasion de célébrer le quart de siècle du combo, ainsi que quatre titres inédits enregistrés entre 1983 et 1987. Absolument indispensable !
