COLOSSUS (Finland) no. 18 (Spring 2002), p. 29


Ed Macan�s Hermetic Science seem to have taken into consideration some comments (stated also in the review in Colossus Magazine) about their first album.� Many wanted to hear Macan�s fine and complex compositions played by a large arsenal of different keyboards (on the first album the main solo instrument was vibraphone.� On his third album, Macan uses different kinds of keyboards (Hammond, ARP, Minimoog, etc.) and the album seems to be a wet dream for keyboard fanatics.� Macan is a master of his work and there is plenty of good playing on the album.� The compositions of Macan are carefully constructed and the atmosphere changes nicely through the whole length of the 44 minutes of the title suite.� A very good buy for those liking excellent keyboard-based prog.��������������� Raimo Eurasto
