    My estimation.

    After releasing the spectacular album ‘The Burden of Paradise’, DIFFERENT LIGHT took four years to complete their new item. So for now, we have CD ‘Binary Suns' (Part 1 - Operant Condition)’ which confirms the band's ability to provide remarkable and digestible progressive rock. Built around the talents of Trevor Tabone (lead singing & keyboard courtesy), Petr Lux (guitars & b/v), Jirka Matousek (bass) and David Filak (drums), the a close-knit group cooperate with Lucy Lux to bring an extra dimension in the beautiful sonic landscape. Their recent offering is a wonderful teamwork full of musical dexterity, quirky melodies, subtle dynamics, glued together by gentle harmonies and graceful playing. A crucial strategic move is the vocal delivery of Trevor Tabone whose voice soars, coming front and centre in the well-produced arrangement. Setting a variety of catchy atmospheres, the internal balance has been suitably accomplished. Even though I comment on this release, I don’t think that a track-by-track analysis would be of any benefit to the reader - because each listener should find his own meanings on the set which may be described as amazing blend with lots of transformative moments throughout. In terms of overall sound, the music comes into the universe where aesthetics and textures span from lofty Styx to occasional gesture of Yes, switching to nimbleness of Toto intermingled with pretentious REO Speedwagon, passing to majestic Kansas alongside throbbing IQ. This is a really ambitious modus operandi, to say the least. Of course, you may notice elements of giants here, but these are threads scattered in a tapestry with very original nuances. The end result serves as a wondrous scrapbook of 6 songs with the longest one coming in at 21:28 min. which fits under the banner of progressive rock epic. Whatever a number of influences, Different Light produce a message featuring the addictive vocal interplay and majestic orchestration. So I just had to write this because it’d be a mistake to let a prog mastepiece like CD 'Binary Suns' be ignored.
